National Scrapbook Day & Shop Pumpkin Spice- Challenge #3 Projects

Happy National Scrapbook Day!  The Shop Pumpkin Spice design team has a few challenges and prizes for National Scrapbook Day.  This is the third and final challenge and a chance to win another $20 certificate at Shop Pumpkin Spice.  You must create a *new* project; please, no back linking!  The challenge ends at midnight Sunday night.

Challenge #3:  Projects

  For each challenge I used Echo Park "Country Drive" collection kit ($9.79) purchased from Shop Pumpkin Spice:

  My daughters' school has the most delightful attendance secretary, Mrs. Palmer.  Whenever I make teacher gifts, I always create something for Mrs. Palmer too.  It is especially nice when someone truly appreciates handmade gifts.  Mrs. Palmer always comments on everything I make for her.  This was a breeze!  I cut the box with my Cricut, assembled, filled with Skittles candies, tied a ribbon, and used an Echo Park element sticker.  Voila!

treat box supplies:  Echo Park "Country Drive" element stickers and papers Little Ladies; ribbon; Cricut cartridge "Life's a Party" favor box p.69 cut @ 7 3/4".

  This treat box is for my daughter's resource teacher.  She has been delightful to work with all year.  I used five Echo Park stickers for this project:  the two sentiments on the top of the test tubes, the scalloped pink sticker, the pale blue heart, and the small dark green flower.  The My Mind's Eye twine was a perfect match.

double test tube treat box:  Echo Park "Country Drive" element stickersEcho Park "Country Drive" Alpha stickers, and papers Little Ladies & Flutter By ; My Mind's Eye Out of the Blue "Smile" twine;  EKSuccess test tubes (special order from Shop Pumpkin Spice).

Double test tube tutorial:

Cut card stock to 5 1/2" x 11".  Score @ 1/2", 1 3/4", 4 1/4", and 5 1/2".
Rotate 90 degrees and score @ 1 1/4" and 4 1/4".  Cut along solid lines.  Punch 1" circles.

(Insert piece)
Cut card stock to 3" x 2 1/4".  Score @ 1/2" and 1 3/4".  Punch 1" circles.

Fold on all score lines.  Adhere insert piece to bottom of box first.  Decorate as desired.

Now it's your turn:
Create a project and link up at the Shop Pumpkin Spice blog.

Happy crafting!
