Simple Circle Notecards

Back once again with some more creations from my 2 Squared School Kit. I told you I was up for the challenge of conquering this kit. Getting closer. :) Here's another peek at all of the kit contents. There's a LOT of goodies in this kit, especially when you sort it all out and begin creating. As the kit suggests with the "2 squared" title, there are lots of 4 x 4 papers to start your projects. This is a great way to get a creative lift if you're in a little crafty slump.
Each time I sat down to create with this kit, I picked a few items and then just went to work. Here I have some notecards with envelopes and stamped pieces. The large stamped bulls eye image is Studio Calico's Plano Stamp. The small circles were stamped with Studio Calico's Take Note.
And here's my set of 3 finished notecards. These came together very quickly so they'd make great teacher gifts because they're easy to mass produce.
On the tops of my cards I adhered some stamped Grid Paper Labels. I'm loving these labels lately for sentiments. They take ink well and if you want several of the same sentiments you can just stamp them all down the row while the labels are still on the backing sheet. I've also got Notebook Paper Labels. I layered 2 strips of Washi tape over the label.
On the bottom of the cards I popped my focal pieces right in the centers of the stamped circles. Realllly love the graphic feel of this. And perfect for the fellas too.
On my Kraft envelopes I used more Washi tape + more stamped Grid Paper Labels. Any of my labels work great on envelopes because they are very flat and stick well.
For packaging I used a Waxed Paper Sack from the kit. I know I will be keeping a big personal stash of these sacks for teacher treats and packaging up small sets of cards. They have a gusset so you can easily fit in a set of cards with envelopes.
I used yet another Grid Paper Label with some of the Kraft stars from the kit adhered. I sealed up my sack with more Washi tape then added a Metal Rim Tag from the kit with a big loop of black/white baker's twine. Eeek, I just love having a stash of teacher goodies ready to go.
Okay, I have ONE more post this week with the last of my teacher themed projects made from the kit. Come back and visit. :)
