Get Funky Thanks

 Hello I'm back again with my second DT project for today  (my first post can be seen here) - and this time it's for

Our theme this month is


I thought it would be a perfect opportunity to make a set of 'Thank You' notelets with a matching gift box as a wee stocking filler for my MiL.
There are so many gorgeous paper collections available at Funky Hand that you could be really spoilt for choice. I decided to use a perfectly co-ordinated pair of Stripes and Spots papers from
Dreams Come True Papercraft CD - from the 'Award Winning' Collection. I think the colours in this collection could be used for male or female recipients.

I started by printing the 'Thank You' sentiment direct onto the cardstock - using an A6 card template 
I created in Microsoft Word
Then simply matt and layered a strip of Spotty and Stripey DP onto a co-ordinating piece of cardstock with a punched edge - using Martha Stewart Doily Border Punch
I also made a matching Gift Box to keep them in :o)
They really were so simple and quick to complete that I think I may even get a couple more sets put together before the weekend :o)
It would be great if you could join in the fun with us this month - Anice has created another fabulous  Funky 15th Freebie for you - available here that would be just perfect for this theme - you have until
14th Jan 2012 to get your entries in - so plenty of time :o)

Everybody Art - Anything Goes
Try it on Tuesday - Anything Goes
I Did it Creations - Thank You
