Hello!  Wow, it's already that time of the month and year!  For August, the Magnolia-licious DT is bringing you projects featuring cards or projects that could contain gifts for students and teachers!! In less than two weeks I will be back at work again! Actually, I've worked some already on curriculum and this week I hope to get my room all ready for the kiddos! It's an exciting time, but somewhat bittersweet to see summer's end in sight!

But, for now, I'm so happy you've come here from Chris Christenson's blog!  She is such a super person and paper crafter and we are delighted that she has joined us on this hop as our guest designer!
I created a box like a did a little while ago for our Christmas in July post!  Such a fun little box to make with four sides to decorate! Here's the LINK to my previous post and the LINK to  the directions by Tracy, too!

 I used the following stamps from the Autumn TURNING LEAVES COLLECTION which are available at Magnolia-licious!  283 Tilda with a gift for you, 3067 Tilda with Pencils, 244 Editor Tilda, and 441 Autumn Sunflowers.  Please visit the store for the best prices and service on your stamping needs, including Magnolia stamps and minis, Scor-tape and many of the most popular dies that are on the market now from Magnolia, Memory box, Marianne, and Cheery Lynn!!
 Here are the other sides of my little box which could contain a gift for the special teacher!  In my case it is for an August birthday girl who loves the color teal!
Thanks so much for coming by! If you have ANY questions about my box, please write them in comments and I will get back to you!! I also have some BLOG CANDY to give away to one lucky commenter!  A recent Magnolia stamp, some paper and a couple of other things to box up and send anywhere in the world!  I'll choose someone on Friday, August 24 in the morning, so please leave a comment before then!
Now, on you go, hopping to Sharon's blog, GRAMMA'S HOUSE OF CARDS!  You can always count on Sharon for something lovely and well crafted!!
Thanks for visiting!! We also hope you'll join us in the challenge and you can find all the details to do so on the Magnolia-licious Highlites Blog!
Have a marvelous Monday!
Hugs, Cheryl
