Double Trouble Challenge #9 - School Days

This is my DT card for Double Trouble Challenge #9 "School Days" using Try Stamping on Tuesday Sketch Challenge #378Twisted Sister's Optional Twist was to incorporate a bookmark or tag in your project...so I decided to include several bookmarks to stay out of  detention.     

Cricut Design Space had a couple of Crayon Box files which I used cuts from both to create this gift box for Teacher's Appreciation Day.  I made four crayons as bookmarks, but there is room for another gift, a card or a candy bar...what teacher wouldn't love to receive bookmarks for easy reference to pages of her teachings for the day.  One project that serves the purpose as a card, an envelope and a gift...what more could you ask for.  





Please visit Double Trouble and create something using a theme "School Days" showing teacher appreciation and/or reminders of school days. And if you use the same Sketch above you will be able to also enter your project in Try Stamping on Tuesday.  Bookmark or Tag is optional for either of the challenges.  


Please pop on by both Challenges to see what the Design Team members have created, and don't be afraid to leave some comments for them too.  



Here are a couple other photos with crayon box open, and the four crayon bookmarks that were placed inside the box.

Sue - your link to your blog on the Double Trouble page is broken. The one on TSOT works fine. Feel free to delete this comment after you read it. You don't have an email on your blog anywhere, so couldn't reach you privately. -Donna
