SCHOOLHOUSE BOX - My World and Plantin

Hi Everyone!  Today is the next to the last day of school.  I made Ms. Pennington one last gift to finish off the year.  I can honestly say that I feel that under Mrs. Pennington's instruction Jacob is more prepared for the 5th Grade than he would have been under any one else.  She has prepared all of her students to work hard and made the jobs of the teachers that have her students in their class next year a lot easier.

I decided to design a box using the schoolhouse on the My World cartridge.  In Design Studio, I cut out two of  the schoolhouses and two shadows of the schoolhouse.  I then used the rectangle on Plantin (only because it was already in my Jukebox) to cut out the inside of the box.  I cut two of the rectangles measuring 5" x 12" and used my ScorPal to score each side at 1".  I folded up the sides and attached them with Tacky Tape to the front and back of the box.

I then welded two shadow schoolhouses together in Design Studio to form the card base.  I then cut a red schoolhouse out for the front of the card.  I cut a square of white cardstock for the inside of the card to write on.

I used Word to print off Mrs. Pennington's name for the front of the school.  All in all, I think it turned out really cute.

Thanks for visiting us today and we hope you'll come back tomorrow.  We enjoy your visits and your comments.  Until another day, God Bless You!!  Donna
