mint - teacher gift

Abby helped me make a gift for her teacher for her first day of Kindergarten - she was VERY excited (and a little nervous) to go Monday. She had a BLAST when she was there though and can't wait to keep going!

I used the Precocious paper Summer Twilight Sampler for this empty Crystal Light container. I LOVED the colors (even with the Andes mints) and thought they would work great on the container. I love Tessa's samplers because they come with ribbon, flowers, leaves - all in coordinating colors (so I don't have to think!). I found the idea for this online somewhere (I have no idea where I saw it now).

This month's Sparks challenge on Paper Smooches had the cutest inspiration piece - I LOVED the clustered flowers in the inspiration and used that when I was doing the teacher gift. I used the Paper Smooches Alphadot set - I LOVE this alpha set!!!!

Stamps: Paper smooches alphadot
Ink: Tsukineko
Accessories: SU scallop circle punch, Precocious paper summer twilight sampler
