Take it on the Lamb!!!

I found this most adorable lamb soap at Michael's in their dollar bins. I couldn't pass it up. Plus it actually did smell nice too!! Another reason to buy it!!

I took out my Sizzix window/shaker box die cut and ran a half sheet of 12" x 12" black card stock through it. I used the lamb from the Stampin' Up! set "Pun Fun." It is another one of those sets that I just love because it has so many cute images that can be used for SO many events! I believe that is called versatility!!! LOL You can't go wrong with sets you can get that much use out of!

Anyway, after I stamped the image and colored it in I layered it and set it in place on the flap of the shaker box. I had added a piece of acetate to the window of the box. The soap was wrapped in a clear celophane so I may not have had to add the acetate but I did anyway. I inserted the soap and folded the box up. I did glue the top flaps so the box would stay together without having to tie it shut with a ribbon. I wrapped the ribbon around the flap of the box and tied a bow and then placed the layer on it.

This was a fun and quick gift item to make. I just LOVE playing with those Sizzix dies. This one is especially fun because I get a lot of use out of it when I make bath salts for gifts or to sell!!! I've made a lot of boxes with it and it is still as sharp as it was the day I bought it. It seems like you can put a lot of miles on these things!!!

These would be fun as Hostess Gifts, Customer Appreciation Gifts, Make & Takes, Stamp Camp items and even for Craft Fairs!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,

These are so cute! What fun it would be to give these out as end of year gifts to teachers and faculty. I've just ordered a bunch of dies for the Big Shot and can't wait to use them. thanks for sharing!
