Hey scrappers! Today, I have a new project for you that's perfect for the back-to-school season. It's a box card in the shape of a little calculator! You could sneak this into your child's backpack or lunch box on their first day for a fun surprise. Such a sweet way to send a little encouragement & support. It's also great for a teacher or ... a co-worker that's great with numbers. What a nice way to brighten their day!
I just love the smiling face and pink cheeks. So cute! I made this using one of Lori Whitlock's wonderful cutting files called Box Card Calculator School.
I chose a star patterned paper for the base called Balloons, from Echo Park's A Magical Place collection. Then I used some solid papers
from Echo Park's Fun On The Farm Collection for the apple, pencil, and the star (product links below).
When the box is opened, there is space between the layers where you could add a gift card, a small note, or money. But since there's no bottom to the card, you would need to use a little tape to keep it in place.
The card folds flat so it can be put in an envelope, sent through the mail or stored as a memento. Lori has so many awesome cutting files, I hope you'll give this one a try. Below are the product links. Have a great day!
