Sizzix Inspiration | Valentines Gifts for Teachers by Genevive Rulona

Hey there everyone! Genevive here ready to share with you what I made for my son's teachers for Valentine's Day using 2 of the really great dies by Stephanie Ackerman --- the Sizzix Bigz XL Die Box & Card and the Sizzix Originals Die Flower Layers #6.  It's such a fast an easy project. And you can even do it with your gradeschooler. Because I did. I let my child help me in this project because I believe the process will make  him proud to really say to his teacher, "Miss Teo, I made it for you!"

To make the gift box, I die cut a patterned paper with the the Sizzix “sandwich” in this order: Cutting Pad + Sizzix Bigz XL Die Box & Card facing up + patterned paper + Extended Crease Pad. I then rolled the sandwich through the Sizzix Big Shot machine,  folded the crease lines and attached the flaps to make the box.

Then I proceeded to embellish the box with a white twine and a handmade flower. I die-cut the flower using the same method I did with the box, this time using the Sizzix Originals Die Flower Layers #6 and used a pair of Standard Cutting Pads instead of the Crease Pad.  The papers used are 3 different cardstocks for the 3 shapes: cream cardstock for the petals, yellow cardstock for the bigger circle and teal glitter cardstock for the smaller circle. I layered the flower shapes with foam dots for dimension.

I let Miguel, my son, write a note for his teacher on the card. This note + a little gift will surely make Miss Teo smile. Don't you think? :)

And not only Miss Teo, because we made 20 boxes. Enough for all his teachers and his elder brother's teachers too!

I hope I inspired you with my post today. Until next! XO, Genevive
