The Paper Players 408 - Design Team Card

Joanne has set us an interesting theme this week at The Paper Players - Lunch Box Love Notes.

I have to confess to being not entirely sure what these are, so I assumed the obvious. Whose lunchbox would I put a note in? When the children were at school, I suppose I might have done that and I'd have done it to remind them that I was thinking of them and to remind them how great they were.

This led me to one of my new sets from the 2018-19 Annual Catalogue, A Big Thank You. It's so easy to get carried away with the dramatic die-cut 'Thank You' that bundles with this set but the stamp that's my favourite is the 'You are the best' one. So that's the basis of my set of little 3"x3" lunchbox love notes.

I made one in each of the five 2018-20 In Colours: Lovely Lipstick, Blueberry Bushel, Call Me Clover, Pineapple Punch and Grapefruit Grove.

That sweet little heart stamp is one of the little doodads and bits that are part of A Big Thank You.
