Teacher Gift #1 2012

This is a gift that I made for Caleb's 2nd grade teacher for this year. I love making the 3x3 note cards but, I didn't want to make another one of the same boxes I had done before so... as I was trying to figure out if I had a cartridge that would cut out a purse, I remembered I have Tags, Bags, Boxes and More on my Gypsy, ding ding ding! Since it was a free download when I registered I went to cricut and downloaded the book to see what the cuts would look like. I am happy to report that I made several that I love! At first I used cardstock that I didn't care too much for to get the sizes to fit what I needed. This is the only completed project but now I have lots more ideas :o) I have also attached photos of the note cards. They are very simple and plain so they will fit inside the bag. Let me know what you all think!
