Back to School Blog Hop

Welcome to the Back to School Blog Hop,
brought to you by the fabulous design teams of:
Made Especially For You
GoFish Challenge Blog!
These two design teams have joined together to bring you some fun and crafty inspiration.
Which should inspire you to get started on those back to school projects!
If you've just come across the hop and would like to start at the beginning,
please visit Made Especially For You.

This project is a little 2.5" x 3" cardstock envelope.
The stamps are from Close to My Heart, colored with my Copic Markers.
Attached the stamped image to a 1" strip to make a sliding piece to hold the envelope closed.
On the inside there are two sections that can be used to tuck in a gift card.
Perfect gift for your child's teacher to say THANK YOU!

We have some wonderful sponsors giving away prizes!
Let's see what they have to offer...

    1. D - I ran out of time last night to create a tutorial for this one. We just did a Back to School for ME4Y on Monday and I completely forgot to create one for the Blog Hop for this morning. I needed to make something fast and I love little envelope ideas. I also had two more post for other DT's I am on as well, that went live this morning. Anyway I will get it up, hopefully this weekend. Glad you stopped by the hop and are following me now. I love sharing my creations. Hope you will try to create something with the other two tutorials I have posted.
