Slide Back Saturday with a sneak peek too! - Stampin Up

Recently my youngest son had a Spanish exchange student come to stay with us. Fin had gone to Spain to stay with him in February for a week then he came to us for a week.
When Fin was coming home from his exchange the Spanish family had bought him little gifts but the mum also sent a little gift of a keyring for me so i wanted to make something that Marcos could take back to his mum in return.

I thought a little set of note cards in a 'Mini pizza box' would be cute and easy for him to pack in his suitcase without the worry of them getting squashed.

I chose dsp from the 'in colour 2018-2020' pack and picked this gorgeous BRAND NEW colour 'Grapefruit Grove'. It's pretty and Summery and just uplifting as a colour.

The little cards measure 3x3 inches to fit in our white envelopes and the 'mini pizza box' perfectly. You can easily fit in 5 with their envelopes.

The Spanish mum can't speak any English at all so i decided to use the 'Brushwork Alphabet' to spell out 'Hola' on a couple of the cards and the box front.

The little flower and butterfly punch are sadly now retired but they are the perfect size to add the finishing touches to the project along with a few 'basic pearl gems'.

I really hope the mum liked the little gift. The boys have already planned they want to meet up again so it looks like we will all be going on a long weekend to Spain so they can see each other.
