I got a free package of play date quick accents at convention and finally pulled them out to work on a variety of teacher gifts using those.
I got a metal tin at the craft store and went to work. Sticky strip is your friend here, but tombo mono works well too. I colored and stamped with forest friends owl. I added a few strips of the quick accents and used my scallop border punch as well to make the cardstock a little more exciting.
