With all of the inspiration from all of the Dream Team Members this month, have you been dreaming of “Tiny Treats”? This month’s Dreamweaver Stencil’s challenge is called “Tiny Treats”….party favours, wedding favours, end of school year treats, teacher appreciation gifts, baby shower favours, co-worker treats, in other words…small tokens of appreciation for those you care about.
For my 2nd project this month, I have created a Baby Gift Box. I wanted to follow-up on my 1st project by showing you another box created using the same method as my Teacher’s Gift Box. The box is created the exact same way but only the measurements have been changed. For the lid, I cut a piece of white cardstock to measure 5 1/16″ X 5 1/16″. Each of the 4 sides were scored at 3/4″. The Yellow Cardstock for the base was cut to 10 1/2″ X 10 1/2″. Each side was scored at 3 1/2″. Refer to the instructions from the Teacher’s Gift Box explaining how to put the box together.

Dreamweaver Paste that I used:
Memories Mist: Mango Lemonade

….and of course, what better to put in this box but a RUBBER DUCKY! The picture below shows the box open.
I hope that I have inspired you to create a “Tiny Treat”! We would love to see your creations for this month’s Tiny Treats challenge. A random winner will get to choose ANY one item sold by Dreamweaver stencils! Leave your thumbnail on the linking system through the Dream It Up! blog. If you don’t have your own blog email Lynell a picture of your creation at firstname.lastname@example.org, and she will blog about it for you. Our random winner will be chosen at the end of the month and posted on the Dream It Up! blog on the first.

With the weather that we have been having here in Victoria, BC all week, it sure reminds me that another school year is coming to an end….and quickly! Time to think of “Thank You” gifts for teachers.
For the month of May, the Dream Team is dreaming up “Tiny Treats”…party favours, wedding favours, end of school year treats, teacher appreciation gifts, baby shower favours, co-worker treats, in other words…small tokens of appreciation for those you care about.
Today, I am sharing with you a simple box that can easily be filled with a gift to give to a Teacher as a year-end “Thank You”! I created the top of the box to look like a Chalkboard. But, keeping up with technology, I’m just not sure how many chalkboards actually still exist in classrooms. I know that in my daugther’s class, the teacher has a dry-erase board….so why not fill the box with NEW dry erase markers ready for the next year of teaching! Then there are boards that are magnetic…why not make some creative magnets to fill the box. But there’s ALWAYS a good “fall back on” gift: Chocolates! The size of the box that I created is just the right size for A2 sized cards too (hmmm, the “Thank You” box filled with “Thank You” cards). One last idea would be to have a layer of tissue paper in the bottom of the box and place a gift card from the teacher’s favorite store or coffee shop placed on top of the tissue paper. As you can see, the possiblities are endless.
Bottom of box: Cut a piece of Cardstock 7″ X 8 1/4″ for the bottom of the box. Scor in at all sides at 1 1/4″. Fold all scor lines. On each of the long sides, snip on the scor line until you reach the rectangular scor. This will create flaps that you will fold inward to create the bottom of the box. I always use a strong double-sided adhesive when adhering any 3D project together.
Lid of box: Cut a piece of Cardstock 6 1/16″ X 7 5 1/6″. Scor around all of the edges at 3/4″. Do the same as you did for the Bottom of the box: folding, snipping and adhering the flaps to create the lid.
For the “Chalkboard”, I cut a piece of Brown cardstock slightly smaller than the top of the lid and then a piece of Black cardstock that was even a bit smaller than the brown. The brown cardstock represents the wooden frame and the black cardstock represents the chalkboard itself. There is also a piece of May Arts ribbon as the “metal ledge”. Dreamweaver Stencils has teamed up for the year with May Arts ribbons! LOVE their ribbon~!
The stencilling of the box could not have been easier. (follow proper stencilling techniques and cleaning techniques: Click HERE to follow step-by-step procedures)
NOTE: MERCI was used in place of “Thank You” as my daugther is in French Immersion!

Well, it is my turn again to share with you another one of my creations for this month’s Dreamweaver Stencils challenge! I used the “Mists” and “Showers” part of the challenge and incorporated them into my card this week. I must say, this card was quite easy to do.
Dreamweaver Pastes that I used:
Memories Mist: Iridescent
Here’s how I created this card:
This card is going to be put to good use. I will probably be sitting down and creating a stack of them. Some in Pink (with NO blisters lol), some in Blue and more like the one I created here. I am on the shower committee at my church and this will be the card I give to moms-to-be!
I encourage you to play along for a chance to WIN a Dreamweaver Stencil!
