Back-to-school challenge

Here is my entry for this challenge!

Hello everyone! This has been a long and a busy week for us. But I am ready to share two new projects I made this week. I will post them separately, so I can add a few pictures of them. The first post is for Lauren Meader My Timeless Template challenge. I was so excited when I saw the new challenge for this week. It seems like she read my mind because I was thinking to send a special gift to my daughter’s teacher. We always do that at the beginning of the school year. For this challenge, we needed to create a themed Back-to- school gift using any of her templates.

This time, I wanted to make a gift that my daughter's teacher could use for herself that’s why I came up with the idea to get bottles of apple hand soap,foam, and apple hand lotion. I was so happy to fit all of that in the same box!
Trust me they are regular size items. The template that I used for this challenge is from PTI - “FROM THE DESK OF…”- by Lauren M.

I used a digital stamp from squiggfly and colored it with my copic markers. I happened to have that beautiful ribbon so I decided to add it around the box - hope you can see it. Ah! and I also added a little touch of glitter to the apple too.

Here are two more pictures to show you the way I covered the panels using two different school theme patterned papers.

Thank you so much for visiting me and writing me those sweet comments. I really appreciate them!

I have to go and get some sleep now. See you soon!
