Hey Everyone,

Hope all are doing good. Made this project for Catchy Challenges 3x3 mini notecards + matching envelopes.

 Instead of making a single note card I decided to do a set of them. So I made a set of four note cards with matching envelopes. I also made a box to hold these four together as a set.

All the four notecards

Teachers Day Gifts

Hello all,

This year I made some small gifts for my daughter's school teachers for Teachers Day. Made Explosion Boxes which has a little gift box in the middle which can hold small gifts or candies.

The Boxes

The four inner panels has spaces to hold tags and the magnetic bookmark I made.

Box when opened

Closer look at the tags and the bookmark

Have kept the outside of the box simple. Have added a punched border all around and the lid has a "Your the best" sentiment.

Another picture of  the finished box

Linking this project to BGC #38 Gifting Love. The bookmark can be removed without affecting the box and so can the gift or chocolates from the box in the middle.
