Early Bird Teacher Cards with Angela

Hello Everyone!

It's Angela here today and I'm so happy to share with you what I've made with the beautiful new BoBunny collection Early Bird.

May is Teacher Appreciation month and here in Italy we're about to the end of the school, so this is the theme of my project. What's better than handmade cards and gifts for your child's teachers?!


For the cards, I chose to experiment the Eclipse technique, that I never tried before, but with a few steps up.
The first card has a glittery heart made using the BoBunny Glitter Paste in blush color. To make it, I simply spread the Glitter Paste on white cardstock using a spatula; when dry I adhered the patterned paper flat on the cardstock and the writing Love with foam adhesive to create dimension.

In the close-up, you can see the pink glitter that appears through the cut of the writing Love and the stitching all around the card.

The second card has got the same writing Love and a fun shaker heart. Like the previous card, I adehered the written with foam adhesive, to give dimension and to make space for the rhinestones of the shaker heart.


For the gift packaging, I made two Pillow Boxes using the WRMK board; some twine and a few embellishments and voilĂ , the result is super cute.


For the other two boxes, which contain a small book, I went for something different. The first box has got a sewed garland wrapped all around and a knitted flower on the top.
The garland is very easy to make; I punched several circles using two punches, a simple circle punch and a scalopped circle punch, then I sewed them together with my sewing machine.


Here you can see the detail of the banner and the flower. OK, I admit I didn't make the knitted flower myself, it's a BoBunny DoubleDot embellishment :)


The second square box has two paper ribbons wrapped around, a few embellishments and a cute tag made always with the eclipse technique.


For the tag, I used again the Glitter Paste but this time in gold color.


That's all for today. I hope you liked my project ideas and that you are inspired somehow.
Thank you so much for stopping by and see you soon.
