Back to school: Lunchbox notes with a bit of Die-namite flair!

Hi Die-namite friends!

  Have your children returned to school yet? My little one did yesterday, started the second grade. One of the things she looks forward to the most at lunchtime is seeing what note or treat I have packed in her lunchbox. Today this cute little tag was tied around some celery sticks and I hope they make her smile!

Here is a look at the little tag:

The Die-namites die I used was the Die-namites Wide Vase.

I cut the wide vase die out of white cardstock (120lb) and colored in with bright copics. I then stuck strips of washi tape on white cardstock and glued the washi covered cardstock to the back of different sections in the flower and vase. I attached foam dots to the back to pop the flower up from the washi covered tag.

Then to finish off the tag I added some doodlebug adhesive rhinestones inside the flowers. I stamped a "happy" phrase and added some black lines around the tag and a little message.

Its a really simple use of such a fun die, Try dressing up little notes with a fun Die-namite die cut for whoever you might pack a lunch for!

Till next time,
