July 9th SOG Inspiration

Happy Wednesday!

I am up over at Some Odd Girl sharing my fun gift box and card set for a teacher.  School is going to begin in just a couple short weeks ( Can you believe how fast time is flying by?)  and this gift box and card set is perfect for the new teacher.

To make the box I used my Silhouette and one of the Silhouette designs.  I used my Core'dinations Cardstock so that the box would be sturdy.  I then used some October Afternoon paper to decorate the box.  I then found some yummy May Arts ribbon to close the box.

With the cards I wanted to carry the color scheme and design so I used the same color of cardstock and then added some Jillibean Soup paper that matched well with the box and ribbon and then added a small strip of the pattern paper.  For the adorable images and sentiments I used the brand new clear stamp set that is going to be released next week!  You are the first to see this totally awesome School Supply set.  I think it is must have stamp set!
Here is a close up of the adorable pencil.
Aren't those crayons too cute?
For this card I used the apple from Fruit Salad
