Tall Thank You Box

How about this? I'm posting something crafty two days in a row! Wow!

At Kyler's school each family puts in an hour a week at the school...it is called a PIP (parent involvement time). It helps keep the costs down by not needing to hire additional people to do the extra things that teachers need. Anyway, my PIP this year (and probably until Kyler leaves the school) is to set up and run the crossing guard program. While I was in WDW a wonderful woman filled in for me and did a great job...as I knew she would. I brought back a silicone trivet shaped as Mickey's hand for her (practical and cute! and the place I linked you to is way more than I paid at WDW) so I needed to make something to place her gift in. This box is just perfect!

I got the directions on how to make this box, which was SO easy, from Becky Roberts blog. Check it out HERE. Instead of Christmas colors I used the Thoroughly Modern designer series paper. The flower is from the Flower Folds Bigz XL die...again. I do love that die...can ya tell? On the lid of the box I stamped different 'thank you' sentiments from the Thank You Kindly set and then embossed the panels with one side of the Stampin' Up! Perfect Detail Texturz Plate. To make the box a little luxurious I added some retired chocolate chip satin ribbon for the bow as well.

Overall this project only took me about an hour to knock out...pretty darn good, I think, for the results...which, I think, it turned out wonderful!

And now a little run down for the rest of the week. Tomorrow I will be baking pies during the day for PEO on Thursday night so I thought I'd share some photos of our WDW trip then Thursday is 3 Clovers Designs Challenge, and Friday Blogger's Challenge day. I'm exciting to have an (almost) full week of stamping to share!

For now...I hope you have a super day! "Marvelous are thy works." Psalm 139:14
