It's time!! I finally get to share the project I created for Craft Project Central this month! I really wanted to come up with something that my daughter could give to her new teacher on her first day of Kindergarten to help kick off the year on a positive note and I came up with this "Teacher Survival Kit" box. The matching card is a great addition in helping your child’s teacher feel encouraged as they begin a new year. As a former teacher, I would have loved a little something like this to make me feel special on my first day! This little box would also be fun to fill with other little goodies, like different kinds of candy…making it the perfect sweet treat! The detailed step-by-step tutorial includes directions for creating the box, lid (created out of a window sheet), and inserts used as "dividers" for all the little goodies. It also includes a description/meaning behind each little item included in this "teacher's survival kit".
My creation is this month's BONUS project on Craft Project Central.

P.S. I was sooooo sad to see one of my most favorite stamp sets Tart & Tangy retire in June, but Stampin' Up! didn't disappoint in the new catalog as they brought in a new possible favorite called Fruit & Flowers! This set includes the cutest little apple with a heart in the center as you see above in the picture of the project I created. What's even better? They have matching Designer Series Paper for this stamp set called Berry Blossoms!! How fun is that?! And, why not stock up on some of your favorite paper by taking part in this month's promotion...buy 3 packs of paper, get 1 free!!
