January's 100 Cartridge Blog Hop

If you are looking for the It's Cold Outside Blog Hop, click here.


Welcome to January's 100 Cartridge Blog Hop!


I created this teacher gift for my best friend who just started her first teaching job a few days ago. She is a PreK teacher :) My dream job! I saw this design a few years back on a Christmas ornament and I just had to make something that resembled it.
Close ups
I used Glossy Accents by Ranger on the pencil's eraser.
Tutorial
I first started off by cutting a sheet of red paper to 9 1/2 by 6 inches. I also cut out a piece of chipboard and glued it to the pack of the paper.
I then cut out a sheet of black paper (8 1/2 by 5 inches) and used my corner punch on the red paper.
I used my Crop-A-Dile II to punch the holes.
I also added chipboard on the cut outs. I then used Mod Podge.

Materials Used
Cartridges: Locker Talk (crayon and globe were cut at 2 3/4 inches, and pencil at 1 1/2 inches.)
                     Doodlecharms (apple was cut at 3 inches)
                     Nursery Rhymes (font used for her last name was cut at 1 1/4 inches)
                     Hello Kitty Font (font used to cut teacher was cut at 2 1/2 inches)

Thanks for stopping by!!!
