SSINKspiration Teacher's Appreciation: All Boxed Up

Good morning!  As we're rushing into the spring we're rapidly approaching summer and the end of the school year and with that comes Teacher Appreciation and ideas we can do to show appreciation to our teachers and school staff.  Today over on the SSINKspiration blog we're sharing ideas for just this occasion to help you get ready and not be stressed with last minute projects.  Several months ago I saw this great project idea shared by Erica Cerwin shared this great tutorial for a gift box and as soon as I saw it knew it would be perfect for teacher's appreciation.  Here's the information on Erica's creation HERE.

I used the Shine on Speciality Designer Series Paper (retiring) and Simply Scored Board to create the boxes and used the File Label Framelits (retiring) to cut the notch on the top.  I used the Schoolhouse Designer Series Paper (retiring) to wrap a piece around the top of the box.  I used the Be the Star stamp set (retiring) and coordinating framelits to make the large star.  The small star was cut out of Silver Glimmer Paper and the star punch from the Itty Bitty Accent Punch (retiring).  For the greeting I used the All Boxed Up Stamp set (retiring) and cut a coordinating piece of Schoolhouse Designer Series Paper that looks like notebook paper.

For the decoration on the top I used a Metallic Mini Clothespin (retiring) to attach the name tag that I created using my computer and then punched it out with the Washi Label Punch (retiring).  I used some retired Baker's Twine to tie a double bow but we have lots of coordinating baker's twine that would also work.

These  boxes are really easy to make and are so cute (thanks Erica!!).  I filled mine wit Tic Tacs, Yogurt Covered Raisins, and some lemonade packets (perfect to help the teachers get through these last weeks of the school year).  Make sure to check out the other items the design team is sharing, they're so fun!  Don't forget several of the items used on today's project are retiring so make sure to order them soon if you want to ensure they are in your crafting toolbox for future projects.

Below are easy ordering links to the products used on today's project:

Have a great day!
