My blogging group, Ladies, Ink issued a challenge: 3D (dum, da, dum, da... DUMMMMM)... ok, that was overly dramatic, haha.
I made a coupon book (file her coupons in) that will hold a pen and shopping list on the inside (of course, I forgot to get a picture of the pen and notebook!).
Anyway, a wonderful friend has been watching my kids on Mondays all summer. I wanted to make her something to show her how much we appreciated what a sacrifice she made for us. So, I took Lauren's template "All Boxed Up" and printed it out on PTI cs, ribbon, and printed paper. I wanted everything to match and look completely finished (Lauren's motto!). I even used my scallop punch on the inside to finish it out.
I used some Stampin' Up stamps that a friend had recently given me (for FREE, to use indefinitely!!), my cricut and design studio software to cut out the shapes AND I pulled out my cricut markers (that I never use, shame on me) and found that the green marker matched perfectly!! I just colored with the other markers I had in the open areas to finish it off.
The second picture shows off the bow!
And the last picture shows the tabs/file folders that will be for her to sort her coupons.
