Back to school....

Hi all....

I found an old wooden cigar box at the antique store along with some old wooden door knobs...and I made a 'back to school' box for Brookie's new Kindergarten teacher for this coming school year!

I used Bo Bunny's Learning Curve collection that I got from BlueMoonScrapbooking.com 

 Here is the box and knobs that I started out with --


I cut a small hole in the top of the box, and then attached the wooden knob with a screw--

And here is what I turned it into --
















Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)

  31. I smiled looking at this spectactular creation, you are quite the crafty one.. your work is amazing here.. You have the gift of looking at something and thinking of what the outcome will look like.. Beautiful work my friend!!!!! I have to start getting these types of papers and try to do a project with this tone. You are such an inspiration to me. I am posting another Exit here Collection card in the morning...(Monday) Taking the weekend to work on a baby album from scratch, it is turning out beautiful, I am thinking of doing a video showing it off instead of pictures..just have to get the nerve. hehe
