Perfect Presentation with Pink Polka Dots

I was feeling a little Dr. Seuss there with my title. Well, after a long Christmas break with no stamping time, yesterday it was time to get back in the groove. After the kiddos were both on the bus, I decided it was time to make something! You probably know by now I love to build stuff out of paper. There is just something really fun about making 3-D projects with paper. Well, the talented Leigh Ann of Stamping With Annie B, has started her own line of templates. It's so exciting to see someone I know from blog-land, venture out on their own and do something they love [and are really good at, too!].


I used her favor box template and, yes, I made it a Pink Polka Dot favor box. I know Valentine's will be here in the blink of an eye, and I figured now is a great time to get started on teacher Valentine's treats. One thing I really like about this favor box, is that the top stays totally closed on its own. Sure you can add ribbon or fun stuff for looks, but you don't have to to keep it shut! It takes only two sheets of cardstock, and went together super fast. Which is always great when you need to make more than one.

Well, I am off for the day. I get to go help at kindergarten, and my poor husband has finally caught whatever I had. I figured since almost a week had passed and he hadn't caught it, he wasn't going to get it. But last night, all that changed! So now 3 of the 4 of us have had it. Keeping my fingers crossed that my son stays in the clear! Enjoy your day.

I love all parts of this - looks like you painted and sanded and distressed and antiqued....I'm sure some of those mean the same thing, but this looks like something you would slave over in the garage all day on a Saturday. This is going to be a fantastic gift for sure!
Uh-oh...hope your son doesn't get sick too...sounds like it's more than just something you ate....

What a cute little box. A very vintage look. You do 3D projects so well. I just don't have the patience for them.
