It's Back 2 School Time At The Cuttlebug Spot

Hey yall! Happy Monday! Can you believe August is already gone?!! Where did it go??? Time just goes by too fast. It's that time of the year too...back to school! I am so glad I am finished with school! LOL. I always dreaded that first day back. My Mom has been back at school for weeks now, but I know many others are just now starting. So this week at The Cuttlebug Spot, we are celebrating Back To School. Here is the link for you to check out the challenge and see the other DT's fabulous projects.

This week I created a little altered box. I cut this out using my Cricut Expression and the SCAL software. I found the SCAL (Sure Cuts A Lot) file for this box on the Sure Cuts A Lot Forum. It is a 'top note die' box. Here is the link to that file if anyone is interested:

This was super easy to cut and create. I thought it would be nice for a teacher on the first day of school with a little apple and some treats tucked inside. Seeing as I do not have any children, I guess I'll have to either put this back for safe keeping or give it away. I created some 'Cuttlebug Confetti' for this project. It was so simple to make and I really like the effect it gives. It makes a great, inexpensive filler on those baskets. I embossed my Confetti with Swiss Dots. I also used my Cuttlebug to cut the marquee shape and embossed with the 'Created For You With Love' embossing folder. I also added some ribbon, toile, and bling. Here it my little gift box:

As always, thank you for stoppin' by today! I hope you have a wonderful week!!!
Pin It!

Oh Aymee, the basket is such a great idea for the teacher. I would love to receive one of these from my kiddos. I also like the "filler' idea. Miss you GF! Well, it's back to school for me today.
