A Box of Animals!

Ever since I saw Joy and Joy made these cute boxes for teacher's gifts, I knew I wanted to make one. Joy and Taelyn spent the 4th of July at my house and boy, was it a productive day! Here's how my box turned out.
I love the new DSP by SU. This paper is called Tall Tales and it matches the stamp set called Animal Stories. I used chocolate chip CS for the base of the box bottom and old olive for the cover. The belly band finished off the box. Here's a look at all of the cards and tags we made to fill the box. It was so crazy doing this and my feet are still aching from standing for hours (I can't sit and craft!). We made 5 cards (all different) and 9 tags. The tag is a sizzix die and is not sold by SU. I just thought it was a cute tag, but I decorated it with some of the Tall Tales DSP and also stamped some of the animals from the Animal Stories stamp set.
Here are close ups of a couple of the cards. I'll post the other 3 cards tomorrow.

I used all of the new in-colors for this project. As much as I miss the old in-colors, I am really loving these new colors. If you haven't already gotten your hands on the new 2009-2010 Idea Book & Catalog and want one, please send me an email to order yours today! If you wish to place an order, please see my SU website on the sidebar. You can order 24/7!
Thanks for coming by today! I love reading your comments and they sure do brighten my day! More tomorrow!

This is an extra cute project. I wish one of my students made me a gift like this. :) When I visit you one day, this project will have to be one of the ones that we work on among a lot of other ones. I may be visiting a lot longer than I thought to finish the project.
