Back to school Blog Hop

Good Morning and Welcome to the BACK TO SCHOOL BLOG HOP! All of the fabulous designers on this hop are showing you a BACK TO SCHOOL project using theFabulous and versatile eCraft!

If you just arrived here from Denise from Purple Paper Paradise  then you are in the right place. If you just happened upon my blog please start at the beginning over at our incredible host Raven’s Blog That way you will be able to see all of the amazing projects and you will have more ways to win!!

So on to my Project for todays Hop!! Ok so I made a very simple project because I have to make 4 of them lol and because I am just starting to get the feel for my ecraft and using MTC! So far so good! I made a small pillow box for my kiddos to put in their backpacks on the first day of school as a little surprise! I have some little treats to put in there and also for my smaller ones a cute character pencil and eraser and for my two older ones some really cool pens and some pocket money for the day!
I didn't want to add to much to it since it is for my boys too lol I know my 8th grader will take the goodies out and hide it, so his friends wont see, but hey I get it he's a teenager! I found this pilliow box about a month ago as a free download but I can't remember the site! I also used my new stamp set "Are you Ready to Rock"  for the sentiment! 
 ( you can find it in my shop!)

Okay so you probably want to know what you can win, right? As some of you may have heard from this hop this amazing eCraft machine that we are all using is created by CraftwellUSA.com. This company is really amazing, their customer service is fabulous and the products are top notch.

One lucky winner will be announced on Raven’s blog on September 10th. The winner will also be listed on the eCraft Facebook page (see why it’s a good idea to like eCrafts facebook page LOL

i love the pillow box - gift box idea. this machine would make it a ton faster to make them (instead of tracing them! and then cutting and scoring them!)

thanks
