I was totally pumped to see this, as it motivated me to sit down and actually create the project that has been bouncing around in my head for my son's teacher! Now I won't be doing it the night before!
The nice thing about using a stampcase is that it has a protective sleeve, allowing you to slip your creation behind it, protecting it from wear and tear and not to mention it looks very professional.
To finish up my gift box, I added a belly band of Burlap Ribbon with the greeting: "Have a GREAT year!" It slides on and off, allowing it to be either kept or tossed.
I stamped my greeting using the Back to Basics Alphabet stamp set. This set has been a valuable addition to my craft room and I love, love, LOVE, that it's photopolymer! I will admit... I stamp one letter at a time! LOL
Have a great day and as always, Happy Creating!
