It is time for April's Design Team Challenge. This month's theme is For The Kids and the challenge is to create a children's gift item! You can stop by Kim's Blog to see all the designers who are participating in the challenge.
For my gift item I created an altered chipboard and pencil holder. The clipboard is from the dollar bin at Staples and the wooden pencil box if from Michael's.
To cover the wooden box I traced the shape of the box on my DP, which is from Crate Paper, Emma's Shoppe. I used the Simply Scallop Die for the border and the Pretty Posies Die for my flower. I layered all three flowers and added a button and Caribbean Teal Twine.
I used the Typewriter Alphabet stamp set to spell out "Paige". The letters are stamped in black on pink paper and I added clear pebbles to the top of each letter.
My little PI is called Making a List. She is colored with Copics and then I cut her out.
Before I covered the clipboard I painter the top pink. Then I layered the paper and scalloped border and added three more Pretty Posies using the die for the flowers and the centers.
At the top of my clipboard I added a layered Pretty Posies and added a button and twine to the center. I am including a small yellow paper pad in my gift set. I covered the top with matching DP.
