Believe in You Blog Hop-Day One

Hi, crafty friends. THIS new die from THIS new Simon Says Stamp release is so fun. I couldn’t wait to make some first day of school cards…

I started by die-cutting THIS lunch box die from THIS patterned paper. I added the smiley face from THIS stamp set to the front of each and stamped images and sentiments from THIS and THIS stamp set on the inside of the lunch boxes. I colored the images and adhered the lunch boxes to a background created from more of that patterned paper cut with THIS rounded rectangle die. I stamped a sentiment from THIS stamp set along the bottom and a sentiment from THIS stamp set to let the recipient know to pull the lunch box open. I finished off the design by adding a sprinkling of enamel hearts.

Here’s a closer look…

When you pull the front of the lunch box open, another image and sentiment is revealed from THIS stamp set…

This flap reveals a sentiment and image from THIS stamp set…

I hope this inspires you to add an interactive element to your next project.
