Paper Players 58

Sunday, August 7, 2011

I don't think I've ever done a challenge this early in the morning!  I don't usually find my way into my stamp room until late afternoon or early evening, but I'm avoiding housework this rainy morning!  And what better way to do that than to check out the latest challenges and create something!

When I first saw this week's challenge at the Paper Players I didn't think I had the right stamps to be able to participate.

But as I checked out my stamps to see if I could find something to work with I found the It's a Wrap Occasions stamps (that look vaguely like band-aids!) and found one that was perfect for the challenge.

Those adorable apples with the A+ grade are just right!  Once I settled on them I decided to make a favor box.  I love making boxes and it's been ages since I've done one.  The catalog had some nice designs like this one, so I copied it.  I think this would be so cute for a kid to find in his or her lunch box on the first day of school.  A sweet treat along with a sweet message!  What a great way to start the school year off!

Thanks for stopping by today!
