Video: Lunch Box Notes for Kids + Giveaway

Hello! Today I am part of the Summer School event over on Simon Says Stamp. I created a video that shares some tips for creating fun, fast and happy lunch box notes. Back to school is just around the corner…

I love love love making notes to put in my kid’s lunch boxes or to put on their pillows. This video shares lots of (random) tips for creating these types of cards and tags quickly.

For all of the tags, I used the new Simon Says Stamp Lunch Box Notes dies. They are so very fun and could easily be added to a notecard. This is a great opportunity to use up scraps.

For adding color, I used the coloring method that works best for me – colored pencils and gamsol. I am always amazed how easy it is to use these two products together!

Now – come on – isn’t that cookie (from the SSS Lunch Box Notes stamp set) so stinkin’ cute with some google eyes? (All the supplies I used are linked in the thumbnails below.)


This week, the folks over at Simon Says Stamp are having a special event…
