I love May, don’t you? I love that the kids will be out of school soon! I really enjoy summer with my girls, but that also means saying THANKS to teachers, friends, PTA, etc. and I always like to let them know how much I appreciate all they do!
Our first project is such a great “quickie” gift item! It’s a sweet little matchbox filled with 4 Hershey nuggets wrapped up so cute! I’ve made matchboxes in the past and they can be difficult sometimes but not with the Matchbox die and the Big Shot! One quick swipe through the Big Shot and the hard part is done! Simply fold it together and in no time you have a matchbox perfect for giving candy, jewelry, and my favorite, CASH! lol I will have lots of great ways to use this box other than a single matchbox so you will leave Club with a variety of ideas on how to use this!
Next, we will be creating a giant decorated paper clip. These are SO fun to make and let me tell you, when you’re trying to dig through paperwork, these clips work GREAT and make bill paying a little more fun! Make a set of 4 of these in different colors and you have a wonderful “thank you” gift for a teacher or co-worker! I have about 10 of these clips and I use them ALL THE TIME! You will really be glad you made it!
Our card creation for this month is well, just HAPPY! That’s the best word I have to describe it! Pixie Pink, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie and touch of So Saffron. This color combination has become my new favorite! This whimsical thank you card is sure to impress the teachers of your kids! You’ll like how quickly it can be made but the recipient will think it took you hours!
