Super Teacher

 Our theme at school this year has been "Super Heroes" and I decided to go with that theme for the entire Teacher Appreciation Week. It wasn't what I truly wanted to do, but I thought it would keep the entire year cohesive. So, of the days is to keep your super teacher fueled with their favorite snacks. My daughter's teacher mentioned that Diet Coke and Mike and Ike's are her favorites.  I got to work making a super easy card!
 The main panel is from the "Comic Strip" pattern paper collection from PTI and I also used the "Zappy Birthday" set as well for the other sentiments and images. The Teacher die is from PTI as well and it is is the same one I used on my previous post. I simply stacked it about 5 times on the lemon tag.  I added a few sequins, an apple die cut and a few books to the bottom.
 Most die hard Diet Coke lovers will probably like the idea of their can/bottle being robed in a cape at all times! LOL! I had a scrap of red felt and wrapped it around the bottle and it was a perfect fit! I made two holes with my crop-a-dile and threaded some blue baker's twine through to tie it.
 Pardon the glue that hadn't dried yet, when I took the pictures. I was in a hurry. It is dry now, though, and looks awesome! She mentioned that Wonder Woman is her favorite super hero and that she loves her invisible jet. I used the plane die cut that coordinates with the "Little Hot Rods" set from PTI. I thought it worked out pretty well. The two WW were die cut as well and then everything was glued on with fabric glue.I hope she gets a chuckle out of her super coke!
 When I was diecutting the apple, I remembered that the diecut that cuts the stack of books looks just like a city skyline. I think one of the PTI team members did that at one has sunk into my subconscious from somewhere. I decided to make a cute little gift card holder. I used some metallic silver DMC floss to create wonder woman's "truth lasso". That was my favorite part of playing Wonder Woman as a kid...we would loop our jump ropes on our hip to be our truth lassos! LOL! I also used the comic strip paper on this project.
 Onto my last project of the post. I thought I would be able to recreate a skyscraper looking box, but in the end my family has voted more on it looking like a Tardis from Dr. Who! LOL! OH well....hopefully she'll kindof get it!? I made the box and then added lots of squares cut out of the comic strip pattern paper to mimic the windows of a building.
I made a little dome for the top (which is where my husband said it took a Tardis turn), but I was having so much fun! LOL! Oh well! Thanks for fluttering by and have a SUPER day!

I love these! Love how you tied the teacher into that first card and I am in love with the superhero cape for the coke!
