This is an MFteaser for a brand new set being released by MFT on May 20th at midnight. It is part of a new line of stamps from MFT that will change the way you gift! :)
This notebook/mini scrapbook was made for my daughter's teacher. I started with 2 jumbo chipboard tags for the front and back cover and 24 white card stock jumbo tags for the pages. On the front cover, I added the panel with the chalkboard (which is paper pieced using Handsome Hunter card stock) and embellished it with a ruler from the stamp set and a cute little clip from SU.
Along the bottom edge of the mini scrapbook, I actually added a REAL ruler which believe it or not I was able to cut to size using a pair of medical scissors (the hefty kind that medics used to cut clothing off). I "stained" the ruler using creamy caramel reinker (SU) and a sponge. There was a hole in the ruler, so I used it to my advantage and embellished it with a felt flower that was attached through the hole using a silver brad. I punched holes in all my pages and covers and bound it with some binder rings.
My plan for this mini scrapbook is to take it to the classroom and have each child decorate one page of the scrapbook for the teacher and include a note for her. I think it will be a fun way for the kids to surprise her. :)

Set of Jumbo chipboard tags: $1.50
