Stamp Club Lawrence - July 2012

The hostess for club this month wanted some ideas for decorating little boxes (she volunteers for a program with at-risk teens, teaching them how to make jewelry). I showed them a 3D flower made from the blossom punch, a pinwheel that might appeal to a younger recipient, and this medallion option that could be more masculine. Everyone chose what they wanted to affix permanently to their box (which incidentally are also just the right size for gift cards). The boxes also feature the new World Spectacular DSP, which I think would be equally applicable to all audiences.

In addition to the box, each person made a gift card and decorated envelope using the You're Amazing stamp set. It has such fun images in it!! It may be my newest "go to" set, because what occasion would that not apply to??! (OK, so maybe there would be a better choice for a sympathy card.) You already know that when you start with something tiny, like the SU! 3 1/8" square envelope, you're guaranteed "cuteness factor".

Inside the card, we made an unexpected pop-up of the sentiment (and can anyone guess where the corner pieces came from??). I just love it when everything coordinates!

Hope you're staying cool and hydrated,
