I wanted to make a teacher appreciation gift that my favorite teacher could use at home. So, I chose this pretty blue paper from Jillibean Soup, which just happens to be her favorite color.
The base is a 5 x 7 acrylic frame. I inserted a piece of the designer paper in the frame. I bought the butterfly cork board at Michaels, they came in a package of 8. I layered three of them together as they were little thin. Using sticky strip, I adhered a post it note pad to the frame.
Using my two of my favorite stamp companies, Papertrey Ink and My Favorite Things, I got to work. My Favorite Things Die-namics were used to cut the butterflies and the scalloped strip behind the sentiment. I used the Papertrey Ink set, Teacher's Apple to stamp the sentiment on a the Mat Stack #1 die cut. Some paper punched flowers and flowers completed the header. I altered a few thumb tacks by gluing one some more paper punched flowers and a tiny butterfly. To finish the project off, I altered a RSVP pen with some more paper and a butterfly. Seam binding was wrapped around and tied into a pretty bow.
