A busy day!

What a busy day! (Well, busy in the *rubber room* anyway) I found these adorable little lunch boxes at Michaels the other night and thought they would make perfect gift tins.

I made 6 note cards, a coaster book and a gift card holder for each tin. I'm thinking they would be perfect for an end of the year teacher gift or even for Mother's Day!

I love these little gift card holders! Pine was working on them when we stamped at Lisa's last weekend and they go together just easy peasy! The base is a little envie that opens on one end (mine are from SU!)

Ok, so here comes a confession.....

I bought my Bind-It-All from Eclectic Paperie when they first came out about a year ago. Today was the first time I've used it. (hangs head in shame) I don't know what I was so afraid of. OMWord it is so easy to use! And it cuts through coasters like BUTTER!

Val send me a coaster book for my birthday last year and I love it so much I can't bring myself to use it! lol Now, I'm glad I haven't because it was the inspiration for these.

So... after a full afternoon of *work*, here is what I ended up with:

I used so many different products on these, that I'm not going to do a supply list (I'd like to go to bed before midnight!) But the main stamps were from Papertrey Inc, SU! and Hero Arts.

Thanks for stopping by!


ps - Want to know what DH was doing while I was working so hard? He was vacuuming cobwebs in the basement! YUCK! LOL (I think I won the better deal here, don't you?)
