Gifts Galore: F-I-L & Teacher Appreciation

I started with a 5x7 acrylic frame, a Post-It Note pad, stash buttons & ribbon(SU!), MM rub-ons (Heidi font) and American Crafts made to match paper (very old stash.)
To create this desk notepad gift for my F-I-L's birthday.
I made Hershey Nugget boxes for teacher appreciation gifts. The mini safety pins are Making Memories, the tag is a QuicKutz die, but the stamp "for you", curly label punch, twill ribbon, and all papers are all Stampin' Up! I used Sue's Stampin' Up! die to cut the box top & bottom.
Here they are all ready to go...
Sue taught me how to make this little box. Here is the one she taught me to make. It includes four little cards...
aren't they cute? Thanks for the inspiration, Sue :)

didyougetthematchboxdiecutfromSU? Well, did you?! Those boxes are too cute, but I cannot think of when I'd use them. It's enablers such as yourself that get me into all sorts of trouble!

These gifts are all gorgeous and I bet the recipients loved them! There's nothing nicer than homemade gifts....well IMHO anyway!
I so want that die to make those boxes...I just need a bigshot or cuttlebug first! Leslie right about your ability to enable...I will be in trouble soon enough :)

Hi June! I do love the sweet handmade box :) Of course the candy inside was also much appreciated. I really like the tiny safety pin--it really is the little things, isn't it?! Have a good one...
