Mother's Day Boxes

Here are a few card boxes I put together for a friend to give for Mother's Day. The boxes contain an assortment of cards (birthday, thinking of you, sympathy, get well, thank you and blank note cards). I also included a magnetic post-it note pad. **Andrea, if you are out there in blogging land, let me know what you think. If I left something out or if you had something else in mind, let me know. If you want to see all three boxes close up, I'll bring them to school next week. Also, do you want the box opened or closed? I can close it and tie it up with ribbon if you want. Hope you like them! **PS Two posts in one day! It's a miracle!

Grads!

Wow, where does the time go? It is already college graduation time and I have two nephews graduating from college and two nephews graduating from high school in June $$$$$! So I am going to need several graduation cards. Two of my nephews are out of state in Texas, so these long cards will be perfect for money :)! For the graduation hat, I didn't have a pattern, so I just cut two pieces of white paper (one diamond shape and then one a little smaller for the underneath part). The tassel is from Hobby Lobby and they come in all colors so you can match school colors. The graduation stamp set is from Tassel Time (Stampin' Up). The circle stamp is from Figures of Speech (Stampin' Up) used with the scallop punch and the big wheel Classic Stars (Stampin' Up). The "hats off" card is a stamp from Event Full (Stampin' Up) and the Cuddlebug embossing folder.
