Whiff of Joy Project of the Month

The theme for this month’s POM is “A present for Teacher”.

I’m still playing with these Doodlebug papers that Jill sent me so decided to use them for my POM. I went for quick and easy as I have 3 gifts to make for our Ben’s teachers – how come at 4 years old he has THREE teachers????woj-pom-jun-1I have not done a step-by-step as I used the tutorial for a Box in a Bag from Splitcoast Stampers. I had to fiddle with it a bit as I made it bigger and the 12 x 12 paper was not long enough to go round the box – hence the punched strip along the centre front. Actually I like it with the centre panel so will do the other two the same way I think.

Another view of the Box/Bag – do you know how hard it was not to eat the chocolates, I have no fingernails left!!!!woj-pom-jun-3

And the card, I used one of the old Mojo Monday sketches, I think this has to be my favourite out of all the sketches that Julee has done.woj-pom-jun-2

Recipe:

Stamps: Dreamy Willow with flowers and sentiment from the Summer Kit

Paper: Doodlebug

Tools: Fiskars Apron Lace punch, Nestibilities Labels 4, Martha Stewart frond leaf punch

Embellies: Pearls, Prima flower from The Hobby House, Stampin Up Hodgepodge Hardware
