Back to School blog hop featuring 3 Girl JAM & SVG Attic...



Welcome to the SVG Attic-3 Girl JAM Back to School blog hop!  We are so excited to have you join us today!

At each stop of the hop we hope you will be inspired by the creativity of the design teams of SVG Attic and 3 Girl JAM. You are sure to find many wonderful projects that will be at the top of your crafting lists!

You should be arriving from Marji's aMazing blog. If you happened across this post out of order, please head to the SVG Attic blog to start at the beginning of the hop.

Here is the project I created:


I decided that I would turn a non-school/fall set from SVG Attic into a school set.
When I saw the amazing Gone Fishing set, I knew I had it!
Here is my take on the tackle box, which I transfored into a colorful lunch box...



Which holds...


Twelve colorful lunch notes!!

I used several different crinkle ribbon from 3 Girl JAM for this project.
The main lunch box has Clover from Sunny Meadows collection. (I love that collection!)
The note cards, which measure 3 x 4 inches when folded, have used
Basic Blue from the Red/White/Blue Collection
and Barn Door from the Rustic Country Collection.
(I think I"m out of the basic red...yelp!)

For half of the cards, I used the crayon file from Back to School Basics.
With so many items in this file, I will be sure to cut more images out as I need to replensh this box.
Although I was thinking about giving it to my SIL, but she is now home schooling her daughter...
I suppose that means I'll have to find another lucky, brown bagger for this amazing set!

The stamped images and sayings come from Pretty Cute Stamps: The Write Stuff
(along with small sentiments from other PCS sets).
I applyed the ink pad directly to my note card before stamping the image.
Don't you love this splash of color behind the black and white line drawing?



As I was cutting it out, I realized that it was not a hinged box...the way a lunch box would open.
(Though there are side hinges included to fit the tackle box look!)
Washi Tape to the rescue!
I added a strip of wide, red washi on both the inside and the back of the box,
before I added the colorful panels from DCWV Fiesta Forever paperstack.


I used Glue Lines by Glue Dots ® to construct this box.
Those Lines are amazing...just be sure to line up edges very carefully!
Pop Up Relief Glue Dots ®  are used to secure the ribbon and the metal tag on the outside of this cheerful lunch box of notes.


Aren't these brads perfect?
You can find them at the Eyelet Outlet.  The white middles add a nice punch to my colorful paper.

I don't use my cutting machine very often.
Thank you SVG Attic for pairing up with 3 Girl JAM and the encouragement to 
design with my cutter!

Dawn what an ingenious way to use the Fishing Set. I hope the opening was as perfect for your lunch box notes as it looks, and that you didn't have to modify them too much. (If I had any idea when it was in production that someone would put notes inside, I would have attended to the size a little better. What fun! Thanks for your work, creativity and for sharing.
