Doodlebug Happy Go Lucky Gift Set

Hi everyone!  I'm excited to be back over on Doodlebug's blog today to share a cute gift idea using their new Happy-Go-Lucky collection.  For my project I made a teacher's gift set.  Here are the details:

To start, I used white card stock and "Happy-Go-Lucky" pattern paper to create a small gift box.  I used a cutting file by Alaa'K  and tied ribbon through the holes in the corners.  

I love Doodlebug's cards so I used two of them in my project.  I used a limeaid A6 swiss dot card, and for my sticky note holder I used a limeaid slim filigree card.  
To create the sticky note holder:
Lay your slim filigree card open with the bracket shape to the left.  Using the measurements on your score board (or a ruler), create 4 score lines as shown below (1 3/4", 2", 5" and 5 1/4").  Ignore the original score line as you will cover this up with pattern paper.  Next, cut the end of the card off so that your new card is 8 1/4" long.  
Add pattern paper and a button with twine to the outside, and glue a sticky note pad on the inside.
For the pen, I wrapped limeaid swiss dot washi tape around the pen and cut and layered flowers out of pattern paper for the top.  A cute limeade boutique button and bubblegum twine finished off the pen.

What's a gift without a bit of chocolate right?  So I wrapped 1" pattern paper strips around chocolate nugget candies and tucked them into a bubblegum striped treat bag.  

I hope I've inspired you to create your own gift sets!  Thanks for stopping by!
