I made this last night after my really horrible no good tummy ache finally went away (I ate some food that my stomach was not very happy with).
I kind of wish I saved this for my team KNK project for next month, but I’m so excited about it I have to share.
That’s what it looks like overhead. I used Lettering Delights graphics, the school bus for the front and back (just did a mirror to make the back one) and then drew a box to go in the middle.
The wheels are attached with brads so they really turn.
The cards were made by doing a Pixel trace of the pop alphabet by lettering delights. I made a set of “A” cards awhile back for my son’s teacher, so I used the first letter of my friend’s last name for these cards. I ran them through the swiss dots embossing thing and used foam tape.
I stamped a set of envelopes to match, though I thought later, it might have been cute to run the envelopes through the printer with some cute lettering delights graphics on them.
Anyway, there you have it.
I added on the tag as an after thought, I probably should have made some shape thing, but I am trying to get in the habit of using existing cuts in my scrap box that keeps getting bigger and bigger and bigger.
Anyway, I thought these would make fun teacher appreciation gifts or other things for that teacher in your life.
I cut everything out on my Zing. I’ve never done this before, but somehow managed to break my Zing mat. I was bending it a little bit to get a stubborn cut off it and it just broke. I used my favorite thing, duct tape, to fix it again and it’s working fine until I can get a new one ordered. I thought about putting my Maxx mats through it, but they are thicker and then thought maybe I should use one of the old cricrap mats, if I even have any laying around anymore.
So… kids, don’t bend your Zing mats. They don’t like it… or I just got a faulty mat that hardened up for some reason.
