Teacher's Day Gifts by Irene Tan


Teacher's Day is fast approaching and it's the perfect time for me to create some gifts using recycled tins and the "Our Lil' Monster" collection. The monsters are so cute and it could easily make any projects looks fun and happy. I really love the bright and cherry colors in this line.



BoBunny Supplies:
Patterned Paper: Our Lil' Monster, Stomp/Our Lil' Monster
Cardstock: Sugar Dot
Noteworthy: Our Lil' Monster
Jewels: Our Lil' Monster
Ribbon: Licorice, Sage, Buttercup
Washi Tape: Black & White Patterned




Monster Decor by Ilene Tell





This collection is so perfect for anything little boy-related. My son Dexter turned 5 not long ago and he loves monsters, so when I showed him this paper collection, he was over the moon. I asked him if he wanted me to make something for his room with the paper, and of course, he did. His only request? That it have "a lot of monsters". He's really into that book, "Where the Wild Things Are" too.




I used one of those cheap, unfinished wood frames from Michael's. To begin, I painted all the edges white. Then I used the paper to cover the frame edge, and inside the frame. At that point, I sanded the edges to give it a smoother appearance. And then... well, I just added LOTS of monsters! This came out as a pretty big project - the inside of the frame is 12x12, plus the outside, it makes for very nice-sized home decor. I just loved how bright and cheerful the papers are, and how cute the monsters are.




I added lots of die-cuts, chipboard, bling, and buttons from the collection, and popped a lot of the elements up with foam adhesive. I also backed some of them with really thick black cardstock, to make them more sturdy and help them stand out. Some of the elements I backed with the red paper to help them "pop" a bit. And the black adhesive pearls were perfect for the monsters' eyes :)

12x12 Chipboard: Our Lil' Monster
Combo Sticker: Our Lil' Monster
