Cartridge Spotlight Week - Plantin Schoolbook: Gift Tubes

Hey everybody! It's been a crazy busy week but I am back with the second project in this weeks Cartridge Spotlight. As you know, this weeks cartridge is Plantin Schoolbook. I was able to make this project with only cuts from this cart. So let's get to the project which is....Gift Tubes!

As many of you know, I am a teacher. I was promoted at the end of last school year to Special Education Department Chair at my high school. So I decided to make these tubes for my team to welcome them back this year.

I used the Grade School paper pack from DCWV again and some plain cardstock from my stash as well. I cut a scalloped border and glued that around the top. I also cut a tag and a star to put the names and sentiments on.

I stamped some stars and the sentiment using Stampin Up! inks and some stamps I found in the dollar bin. I also used my white gel pen to put some ticking around the edge of the tag. I tied them on to the tubes with raffia and glued a 1" circle to the tops of the tubes.

I forgot to say I filled the tubes with Dubble Bubble bubble gum. I hope my team likes these and that it gets them off to a great start to the year.

Leave me some love and remember to check back for at least 1 more project this week. Toodles!
