Teacher Appreciation Gifts - Taylor

Hi, Crafty, Peeps!
I am so happy that I am really hitting most of my creative goals for 2019.
  I have significantly reduced my stash, played with inks, stamps, dies, and tools that have gone untouched for years. 
And so, when the time came to decide on appreciation gifts for my grandson's teachers, I reached back for an oldie but a goodie!

I absolutely love "construction" projects and I never use dies to create a project if I can do it with chipboard or card and build it from scratch.  There is nothing I enjoy more than building stationery boxes.  
This particular design is one of my favorite.  The template is the brainchild of a former Stampin' Up Demonstrator.  This design uses 8-1/2"x11.0" paper.  The original called for 12"x12" paper. 

I did not attempt to make new cards for this project.  I had used cards created for past challenges and/or my personal blog posts!

Thanks, Ms. Taylor!
The original template has 1-inch  flaps that wrap around the back.  
I prefer this style

This is a super fun project and a very impressive appreciation gift!
