Back 2 School!

It's that time of year many moms look forward to, but I know a lot of kids and a few teachers who are disappointed to see their summer vacation come to an end. WOW...summer sure flew by, didn't it!?

This weeks theme challenge at Stamp Something was Back to School. I've been seeing the cutest little backpack boxes posted at Splitcoast and figured this was the perfect time to try one!
When I think of back to school, I think of bright, primary colors. So I thought the Cutie Pie, Saffron & Rose Designer Prints papers would be perfect. this is a great project to use up some of those paper scraps you may have piling up. Here's another view of the little box so you can better see the front.
I used the SU! Birds & Blooms Sizzlets along with my Big Shot to create the cute little flower embellishments. I added a little extra detail to them with my white gel pen. The flaps stay closed with just a bit of velcro adhered with sticky strip.

If you are interested in trying one of these cute little boxes, I found an awesome tutorial complete with a template posted on this great blog: Stamp Happens - yet another blog I had to add to my ever growing list of favorites!

Thanks for stopping by...have a wonderful day!
