thankee kindly

Here's a thank you gift for a crafty mom friend who watched Caitlyn when I set up my classroomSuch a big help because that was a wild time - the desks and chairs for my 45 1st period students didn't arrive until 2pm the Friday before Labor day (and we were kicked off campus by 3).  Total whirlwind test in letting go.  Normally, teachers like to be prepared before the first day in a new school year (sarcasm?) but it was out of my hands.  Anyone but these super sweet kids would have sensed anxiety and gone for the jugular.

This is a cute & super easy download template from PTI - All Boxed Up.  I dig flourishes so I stamped kraft paper with leaf ink and added dots with a white pen to the tip of each swoop.  I stamped the flourish on the small square envelopes so it hangs over the back flap.  The ribbon is a cream satin flipped over to the non-shiny side and stamped with a sentiment.  The glass jar has a monogrammed top, also dotted with white (hard-to-see) on the green dot in the tiny repeating image.

stamps - PTI Fancy Flourishes, Simple Stationary, Fresh Alphabet, Damask Designs

ink - PTI leaf
accents - PTI vintage leaf button, bitty dots leaf ribbon

tools - Marvy circle punch; corner rounder punch; Scor-tape; Tombow mono adhesive; Sakura Gelly Roll white pen
