Mrs. Yamada's gift...

On July 10, 2009...Taelyn had her last day of her special session of summer school. She really liked this teacher and I wanted to make something special for her. My daughter was so cute to try to find out Mrs. Yamada's favorite colors. She told me it was pink, white, yellow, black...So I tried to make everything in those colors. I tried to make my own open window box again, but this time I made it easier for me. I used my label one nesties to cut the window on the CS and then used a size bigger nestie for the DP. this came out so much better! here are the measurements...6" x 9" for the bottom of the box...5 1/4" x 8 1/4" for the top. Bottom of the box...score @ 1" all around. Top cover...score @ 1/2" all around.
here is what it looks like opened...I used so saffron for the cover and chocolate chip for the bottom of the box with CS. I added some prima flowers to decorate the outside of the box. Look at the yummy DP! I love this new line from doodlebug!
here I made a checkbook cover with my favorite gorjuss girl! I used Imaginisce DP and added some prima flowers with sugar coated brads...
I also made a photo holder too...here I used Wasabi from the Ketto line! I cut her out...oh boy is it very hard to do...I swear I almost cut off her arm and her neck! yikes!
last I decided to make her a simple post-it-note holder. I love the cupcakes, so I used that DP for the base and HK's bow.
I had to make a card so Taelyn could write a special message to her teacher...thanking her for a wonderful summer. I decided to use TGF! she is darling! I used yellow and pink as it was one of Mrs. Yamada's favorite colors. colored all my images with copics. I added a matching pen and some hand sanitizer to the gift box.
aren't you amazed? the year is going by so fast! it's the middle of July and then Christmas will be right around the corner! okay...I need to slow down...take it one day at a time =) thanks for stopping by today!
