I, as per my usual habits, left making teacher's thank you gifts to the last minute again this year. Thankfully, the latest issue of Family Fun magazine arrived in the mail and a craft project in it inspired me! I adapted it from the Kraft Dinner box used in the magazine to one made from cardstock and I have a tutorial to show you how I did it. The great part about it is that it works for a teacher or for a dad!
Stamps: A muse (school time)
Ink: Palette hybrid noir
Paper: SU (pumpkin pie, basic grey, summer sun), A muse (lined paper)
Accessories: SU large star punch, MS apple punch, pop dots
You can decorate the tape measure as you wish. I used stamps from A muse's School Time clear set - perfect for this project as it includes the ruler and the sentiment "You Rule". I added a bit of grey cs at the end of my tape measure so it looks like a real one.
Hope you like this project...it's quick if you're in a hurry to get something done - half an hour tops now that the measuring is all figured out for you!
