Happy Tuesday! Hope you're all having a great day. I'm about to step out to take my nephew to the doctor's, but wanted to sneak in here and share the project I made for this month's Guest Designer Challenge over at My Favorite Things.
This project was based on a couple of firsts for me ~ first time using my Sihouette for a project and first time putting together the adorable Poppin' Petal Treat Trio designed by Jen del Muro. Here's what I came up with.
I predominately used the MFT's October VIP Kit, Teacher's Pet VIP Collection, and some October Afternoon patterned paper. Now the challenge was to incorporate office/school supplies into our project or to base the entire project around them - I decided to do both. Here's a close up photo of the carrier.
I used staples to attach Gaven's teacher's name (he goes to a dual immersion school, so they refer to their teachers as 'maestras' which means teachers in spanish. I also used ribbon instead of the handles Jen provided and attached those with staples as well.
Jen designed the carrier to fit three boxes, I decided to go with two because I wanted to alter some post-it notes, here's a photo of those and the altered giant paper clip.
I thought it would be great for Gaven's teacher to have a place to hold her paper clips and rubber bands which are two things she is constantly using in kindergarten. I went ahead an labeled each of the boxes as such.
On one of the boxes I used the Banner Strip Die-namics Die and on the other Rounded Banner Trio.
