Hello Fetti Friends! It's Lisa Henke and I'm happy to have another day to share a project with you all here on the RC blog. Welcome. Sadly, for us here in Ohio and many of you all as well, summer is winding down and school is starting. While I love the routine for my family, I really do get sad when my boys head back to school. I eased the pain a bit with some crafty time to create a trio of small little note cards to slip into their lunches this year. It is a small thing that can bring a smile to their face and hopefully brighten their day. Of course a little post it note works too, but why not step it up a notch and put our stamping supplies to good use. 

I started with a few different sets from Reverse Confetti and used the second largest Stitched Square Confetti Cut for the base on each of them. I used Stone, Mist, and Premium Polar White card stock. 

I changed each card up and kept them on the simple side, I added an stamped image and sentiment to all of them. You can really make them as elaborate or as simple as you'd like. I gave a simple version with the turtle, not coloring and only using ink and stamps. I left the backsides blank so I could write a little note if I choose to. 

First up is the turtle from Let's Shellabrate. I stamped him in navy ink  and then did an ombre' color combo stamping the same sentiment, from So Many Sentiments, repeatedly stacked on top of each other. I used Stone, Mist, Baby Blue, and Navy inks. 

Next one I started with a quick stenciled background in Bumblebee ink and the Split Circle Cover Panel. I then colored up the cutie-pie frogs from Spring Pals. The sentiment on this one is from So Many Sayings

And because I love dogs and so do my boys, I used the Super pup from So Super stamp set. I did a quick ink blend with Bumblebee ink and then stamped the solid cityscape along the bottom in Midnight  ink. 

There are so many ways you can create your own set of lunchbox notes. Pick one stamp set or combine a handful from your stash. It's a great way to use up smaller pieces of card stock or even pattern paper you have laying around. The power of a hand written note is priceless! Send them off to school with a hug, a paper hug!
