So excited to be showing you this project that I made...  I love fall -  I made this for a non-profit organization Families Together who educates, assists, basically a backbone for families with children with disabilities.  I have a son 7 with Autism and this organization has been a tremendous help with understanding and assisting with special ed law in schools!  Every state has a Families Together if you have a child with disabilities.  FAMILIES TOGETHER - I also am a parent to parent mom and a board member - anywho...  I made these as they were given an opportunity for all staff in Kansas to be given an bonus as a thank you and it's my thank you as well :)

Using the cartridge  Easter 2010 on #50 on the overlay and just hid the bunny on the hide feature on my Gypsy.  **Cutting at size  11.5 in height and 5.50 width. created on my gypsy and using my awesome Expression. ** Close to My heart cardstock.
  **Embossing folder THANKS from Cuttlebug by PC for the top of this envelope and then sanded lightly to disclose the white. (LOVE this effect)  the Leaves were created using the maple Leaf folder & die from PC cuttlebug. and then embossed using a coordinating folder.
**  I handwritten the thank you, name & years on the top leaf.
**The 3 leaves were inked using the Spectrum pad Pumpkin patch ink pad from Stampin Up.     I have had the rafia for years now from Wal-Mart.

I hope you like this pillow box.  Just shows you can use any item from any cartridge for any reason....     Please head on over  to Kristen's Blog.
