***I'm running a Blogaversary Challenge with a chance at a $35 Gift Certificate to My Favorite Things - be sure to check this post for all the details***
Oh my goodness, do we have a FUN week lined up for you at My Favorite Things this week. Up first are two days of teasers for the new a la modes, then the VIP kit Tuesday night, and then our newest sketch challenge on Wednesday! Exciting, right? So, needless to say, I've been very busy preparing new projects to share with you!
Today's previews are for a la modes: You Rule! Whether you are a teacher, have kids in school, or a friend who teaches, you'll love this set. Its also a perfectly sweet pun to tell any friend in your life that they rule!
I chose to put together a card featuring a "quick release bookmark" for my son's second grade teacher. I colored up the little a la mode to look just like her with her jet black hair.
I stitched all around the tag for added durability, and also, just because I love how the stitching looks. I also added the sentiment full stitched, versus my usual sentiment flag thingy, there was too much of a chance of that getting shredded with use!
By un-tying the ivory twill bow, the bookmark is released, and the ribbon pull on the top unfolds from the back. I did stitch that ribbon in place so that it is truly secure.
Note: I also added patterned paper to the backside of the tag - for a fully finished treatment.
Here's a quick peek at the inside, just enough room for my little guy to sign his name.
This little card is tucked into my son's folder to give to his teacher today. Hopefully it brightens up her Monday morning a little. I can't even imagine 25 eight year olds on a Monday morning. Yikes! I don't think there is enough coffee in the world........
