Teacher's Gift

It's that time of the year ... last day of school! Yesterday was Chase's last day. I made his teacher one of those great cubes with thank you notes. When I picked Chase up yesterday she said thanks sooo much a gift that I can actually use! I am so glad ... love when my handmade gifts make others so happy!

Desk Cube with Thank you Notes

Main Panel

Picture Panel

Notes Panel
Has transparency on it - can write memos on it with Dry Erase marker and wipe them off.

Post-It Panel

Personalized Thank Yous with Matching Envelopes

I typed the "From the desk of Mrs. Ackerman" in Microsoft Word and used the WordArt feature to make the text in an arc. I punched them out with my circle punch and them stamp the butterfly on them with the Oh How set from TAC I mounted that on a scallop circle. I also stamped the front of each envelope with the same butterfly. (the same butterfly is also on the main panel of the cube).

The box is made of 4x4 coasters. They were covered with patterned paper and decorated. Once you have finished decorating you use the Bind-It-All to punch holes in the sides of each coaster. Ribbon is then used to tie/lace the sides together. Once that is complete you can glue the bottom to the cube using a strong liquid glue.
