Thank yous


I recently needed to make little thank yous for some people at work, and since everybody is on a diet, I chose to make them note cards instead of giving them candy.  This little box from page 52 on the Artiste cartridge did the trick!  On my Gypsy, I sized it at 3.7 inches and turned it onto a 90 degree angle to fit on my mat.

I used the Dotty for You paper that CTMH had as a special promotion this summer.  That was such nice paper!  I bought two or three packages of it and am still using it.  I wish they would bring it back!  Anyway, the beautiful Thanks stamp is also Close to My Heart.

I’m a science teacher, so naturally I like to reduce, reuse, and recycle.  Look what I used as a box closure:


an old magnetic business card!

Here are the note cards I put inside:

P1050820webI CASEd these cards (Copy And Selectively Edit) from Dawn’s March Thank you notes.  They were very easy to make and really can be used for any occasion.  I used two Cuttlebug folders — Heart Blocks and one from the Oriental Weave set.

The cute little butterflies are leftovers from a project I made this summer.  They’re from Baby Set 1 from Paper Crafting World.  The sentiment is from Pink By Design – Go Green set.

    Your comment about reduce, reuse and recycle since you are a science teacher made me laugh about my being a high school resource teacher….I found myself begging, borrowing and going through trash to find things I could use for my students. (I was also going to say stealing, but that might not sound right if someone read it. If something sat around for a long time collecting dust, I would ask who it belonged to. If no one claimed it, I would leave a note and then take it and put it to good use for my students. The teachers finally understood my needs and before throwing things out I would get first bids on it…great teachers to work with. OK, back to your card…it’s a beautiful card and I just love it when you use that stamp. I hate it when they retire papers that we love so much.
