Belli Challenge #73 - Happy Wednesday!

This weeks Belli challenge is to create a card, scrapbook page or project using applesSmiley from millan.net or pencils Smiley from millan.net for Back to School.

For my project below, I used a stamp set that I purchased last year and hadn't even inked it up yet! For gosh sakes how does that happen! LOL! The set is from Stampendous and is called School for Changito.

I created my little box from scratch and used SU black cs cut at 5 inches by 9 inches. It's scored at 1, 4, 5, 8. I used a fiskars border punch called threading water along the top. The box was assembled using red line tape. I added a band with SU Real Red cs and some DP that I had been hoarding that was perfect for the school theme. The cute little apple was cut out using my cricut and the scissors where made using the SU word window punch and my oval nestabilities. I connected them using a silver brad! Cute, HUH???!!!??? Lastly I made a short little pencil using the word window punch. That little word window punch comes in really handy! LOL! The contents of my teacher box has some shredded crate paper, a set of #2 pencils wrapped with a cute red polka dot ribbon and a large altered paper clip. The paperclip has the same cute little apple on it as well. So......what do you think? I bet any teacher would love to get this as a gift!

Now that you've seen my project, you need to head on over Smiley from millan.netto the Belli Challenge Blog to see all the lovely Belli Ladies inspirations! Don't forget that Mr Linky lives over there so don't forget to link up your project once you're done. We can't wait to see what you come up with. So come on over and play with us this week! It's gonna be LOTS of FUN!

Hugs,
