A Valentine Treat for the Teacher

Today's project is a gift for my kid's teacher for Valentine's Day. I used Lettering Delights' Pillow Box SVG set and imported the template into Make-the-Cut. I reduced the size by 10% so that the flap in the front is the perfect size for the stamp

Using Make-the-Cut, I cut out the pillow box with my Cricut using Lettering Delights' "Love is Sweet" Paper Pack. Next, I stamped Joy's "For my Teacher" stamp from the All Around Sentiments set twice- once on pink cardstock and once on white cardstock. 

I punched out the pink stamped image with a Scallop Punch and used my 2 Circle Punches on the white cardstock to get a ring. I adhered the ring over the scallop and taped the whole thing to the front flap of the pillow box. The stamped image stands out even more in the contrasting colors and it also brings out the unique design of the pillow box.
