New school year!

Hi friends,

I recently won (yay!) some cutting files from The Cutting Cafe and got to chose this gorgeous file called - pencil treat cup card. My son started a new school year and we're very excited for this year in Grade 4 and I decided to make this file as a hello card for his teacher.
I did not read the instruction sheet that accompanied the file so once I started cutting the card I realised that I should have increased the size as I originally wanted a standard card size.
But it actually turned out really cute at the smaller size (and I got to save some paperclips to use for another project!). I cut out two small apples from left over scrap cardstock and added them to the card with some foam dots.
The pencil treat cup card also comes with some sentiment sayings, the #2 and pencil scribbles.

I did watch the video that is on The Cutting Cafe website to see how to create the section to get the paperclips or treats in and out the card. This is such a fun idea!

Thank you for visiting today!
