Pals August Hop goes 3-D


Welcome to the August Pals Hop. This month we’re featuring 3-dimensional projects for your enjoyment and inspiration.

I’m stop number 17 on the Pals Hop. You’ve probably arrived from MikkisCreativeCorner and I’m happy you stopped by! Be sure to hop all the way around and enjoy the creative 3-D projects we’ve prepared for you! If you ever find yourself off course just click on any of the links below and you’ll be back on track!

Well, school starts this Wednesday in our city. Summer went quickly for us and I’m sure it did as well for the teachers. Why not send in a little “Welcome Back” gift to encourage your child’s teacher.


The first gift is a note holder made using the #2 Box die and the Big Shot. Cut two out and put them together leaving the top unfolded. Attach the two boxes back to back with the top straight up. Punch the handle out with the Wide Oval punch. Decorate and you’re done! I put a small note pad, 3 small pencils and some book marks in the front and candy in the back!


The notepad was created from a piece of Just Add Cake Designer Series Paper. I took the coordinating colors and cut tags using the Two Tags Die & Big Shot. I stamped images from Little Lambs stamp set making perfect book marks or encouragement notes for your children.


This last item is a pencil pouch that fits a single pencil or pen. It is created using the same instructions as seen here but just a different size. Cut your paper at 3”x8” and score at 1 1/4” and 2 3/4” along the long side and 1 1/4” along the short side. Everything else is the same.

I hope you enjoyed these back-to-school projects! And now it’s off to Mike Funke’s Stampin Style for more 3-D projects. You won’t be disappointed; Mike loves his 3-D projects!


God Bless,

Oh my gosh, this is so stinkin' cute. You have pushed me over the edge to get those tags dies. I have hemmed and hawed too long---seeing these made up like this has made me WANT them!! Great job, cute little gift set!

Katy McGloin said...

Great gift set! I just loved all the details. You might just have to do a video presentation...:)

Miranda said...

Great Projects! TFS

Christy said...

WOW this is an awesome project! I love all the details...decorating the binder clip with matching DSP is such a great idea!

Patti MacLeith said...

Martha, these are adorable! Happy New School Year!

Stampindad said...

Too cute!! Thanks for providing inspiration for this year's back to school gifts for the teachers!!

Mikki said...

Martha, love the back to school projects you did and instructions on how you made them. Enjoyed all of the items you made and I'm sure the teachers will also.

Mike Funke said...

How clever! Love all the detail you put into this and the caddy is perfect for just about anything!

Really great job!

Kylie said...

this is a great project. looks like you're going to have to find a teacher to give them too :)

Pam~ said...

I know the teacher's always look forward to having your children in their class! This is adorable and will be well appreciated! Beautiful work, Martha!

Carla Bazhenow said...

Martha, I love your project! Its adorable and I love the colors and details. You have inspired me to make one for my GDaughter. She'll love it and will probably keep it for herself instead of giving it to her teacher. Hugs,

Mary Fish said...

Such a great gift for a teacher!

I especially love the little bookmarks.

Hugs, M
