thanks for everything….by melissa cash 2


Whew, it has been a busy week.  I have had a blast at CHA this week, met tons of great people and even had a chance to hang with my fellow Tombow teamie, Debbie Fisher.
In just a few hours I will be on a plane and headed for home.
I created this little box as a thank you for my sweet neighbor because she gave me a bunch of her beautiful sweet peas a few days before I left.  They smell so good!
I cut the box out of Graphic 45’s A Ladies Diary Collection cardstock with my Silhouette Cameo.  I just love being able to quickly put a nice little gift together when I need.  I used Tombow Mono Adhesive Dots on the glue tabs for the box and lid and it worked perfectly to hold them together.  Nice and strong.  I also cut some scalloped circles with the Silhouette and used them to create a flower for the top of the box.  I used Tombow Mono Multi to hold each of the layers of the flower together.  I used a Tombow Power Tab to adhere the flower to the ribbon/box top.
I stamped the sentiment from the Our Craft Lounge Big Thanks set in Tuxedo Black Memento ink onto some ivory cardstock and a scrap of paper from the Ladies Diary Collection. I used Tombow Mono Adhesive Dots to attach the layers to the base cardstock and also to adhere the ribbon to the card.  One thing I really like about this type of adhesive runner is that it is easy to run down the backside of the ribbon.  If any of the adhesive hangs off the edges of the ribbon, you can quickly rub it away with your finger.  Easy peasy!
Be sure to check back in next week as we will be teaming up with Epiphany Crafts to bring you some amazing creations.
