MCT May Stamp Release: Here's Lookin' At You

It's Day 2 of the My Creative Time May Release Sample Week! Remember, all of these sets are available now in the store!  Today Emma and the design team are sharing projects using the new Here's Lookin' At You stamp and die set.  This is the perfect set for the men, boys, and grads in your life! You have to stop by Emma's blog to see what she and the rest of the design team have created with it!

For my project, I thought it would be fun to create a girly treat box that would be perfect for a little graduation party favor!  I began by stamping pink graduation caps from Here's Lookin' At You onto white cardstock to create my own background paper.  I then cut the box using the MCT Bubblegum Treat Box Die.  I tied the edges with some gorgeous raspberry seam binding ribbon that I bought from Liz's Paper Loft Boutique.  This is such a fun product, because you can use it flat or crinkled (if you mist a little water on it and scrunch it up).

"Hats off to you" is a fun sentiment from Here's Lookin' At You.  I heat embossed it on a graduation cap that I made using the coordinating dies that come with this set.  This was a super quick project, and it would be very easy to make a bunch of them in your grad's school colors. 

Here's a look at the full set:

This wouldn't be a party without giveaways!
