Growing in Unity, Day 4

Welcome to day 4 of Growing in Unity!

Remember to leave a comment every day this week for a chance to win your choice of two Itty Bitty stamp sets from Unity!

Today I've got a little teacher's gift.
 I made some 3x3 note cards to give the teacher so she could use them throughout the year for Thank You's and other occasions. I found these notecard holders and thought they would be perfect to decorate as note holders and she could keep it out on her desk as well.

I started by Mod Podging on some MME Darling Dear papers all the way around and on top.
I added a bit of ribbon around the bottom.


On the top I outlined the paper with some washi tape and added her name with stickers.

On the front I stamped a flower from the Best Wishes and Blooms stamp set and fussy cut them, then Mod Podged on as well. I stamped the frame and sentiment from the Just a Note Itty Bitty set and did the same.


Maybe I can even find a cute little pen tot hrow in there so that she has everything she needs in one spot.


Nw I just need to make 3 more of these by this afternoon! Wish me luck!


Thanks for looking and leave a comment for your chance to win!


Supplies:

MME Six by Six Darling Dear papers
Unity stamps: Just a Note, Best Wishes and Blooms
American Crafts Ribbon
SU Basic Black ink
Mod Podge Matte finish
Rockabye foam letter hickers in Powder
