Thankful Lunch Box Notes and Pilgrim Hat Treat Holder!

I'm posting today on the Pretty Cute Stamps blog and wanted to share these lunch box notes I recently made for my daughter, Amie, who is 8. She LOVES having a lunchbox note in her lunch everday she goes to school. Now, I don't always make spectacular lunchbox notes, lol! Sometimes it's just a 3x3 piece of cardstock with a couple pieces of paper or a sticker or flowers on it with a sentiment stamped on the back - but I always put one in and that's just our special thing!

I started off by cutting watercolour paper into 3x3 squares. Then, I put some Distress Stains on my craft sheet, spritzed with water, and put my paper into it, moving it around a bit until I got the desired effect. After drying, I added some bits of fall paper I had in my stash. I used the Thanksgiving Eats adorable stamp set from Pretty Cute Stamps, stamped on watercolour paper to add my yummy Thanksgiving images. I used Distress and Tombow Markers to watercolour my images in and added Stickles for lots of glittery fun!

Here's the back of the cards - I love all these awesome sentiments included in the set! 

I used the Sew Amazing stamp set to add running and zigzag stitches to my cards, and then added a bit of Glossy Accents to my hearts.

Here's a look at this sweet set!

I also wanted to share this sweet little Pilgrim Hat Treat Holder, which is a cut file from Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbons. I made 8 of these for our Thanksgiving Dinner a couple of weeks ago, and they were super easy to cut out with my Cricut Explore! I stamped the sentiment from the Thanksgiving Eats stamp set and heat embossed with white embossing powder before gluing my hats together. Everyone thought they were awesome! 

Thanks so much for joining me today! Don't forget our Thank You Challenge is going on right now - you can enter your own project with a Pretty Cute Stamps stamp for a chance to win a gift certificate!!
