Out Of The Box Teacher Gift




I made this for my son's pre-school teacher for Valentine's Day. It's a box made from very thick scrapbook paper that contains 12 monogrammed cards. The cards and envelopes fit into two sections in the box. The box closes with a magnet fastener. The handle is purely for decoration and not functional. I learned this the hard way! I tried to pick it up by the handle and it broke. The box with its contents is just too heavy for the handle. This project was made from the "Out Of The Box" template designed by Lauren Meader. I used a Just-Rite stamp set for the monogram and its border.

This is great! Pinks for Valentine's, but it's not "Valentiny" looking, so it'll look super sittting on her desk any time of the year!
