Today is my boys' last day of school before winter break. So just in the nick of time, I finished the gift for Jordan's teacher. He was no help in getting her gift going cuz when I asked him what his teacher liked, he said, "I don't know, she goes to Taco Bell a lot." Ugh... Taco Bell does not do anything for my appetite or inspiration :( What to do??? Then I thought of just the thing... A Stationery Box!
Here's the box closed:

Here's how I loaded it up:
I started by making a set of 8 personalized cards (CAS).
Next, I added a matching notebook: For lists or keeping track of all those school passwords.
Then white-out for when it's almost perfect:
Then a few "thumbs-up" paper clips:
Then a doodle/scratch pad & a 2012 Mini-Calendar:
I added a strip of Scor-Tape to the top edge of the pad & the calendar to hold the sheets together.
All that was left was a personalized pen:
One other change I made was to adhere the side flaps down to create a more finished back of the box.
Here's what I did:
Here's the card:
Here are the innies:
