Just Us Girls {3-D/TEMPLATE} Challenge #99

Hi friends.  I'm popping in this morning to share the quick project I made for today's Just Us Girls challenge (JUGS99).  Lisa is our hostess, and she kept things easy for all of us!  Simply create a 3-D project that showcases a back to school theme!  Oh the possibilities!! 
I decided to use the MTME Cutesy Cover template to create a sweet little box to house some much needed hand sanitizer for anyone going back to school - student and teacher alike!  I didn't add a sentiment simply because I liked the way it looked without one and I haven't decided who I'll be giving this one to.  I printed 4 sheets of my MTME Academic Hodgepodge paper.  Two at full, 8.5" x 11" size, and the other two at 5" x 7".  I used to two full size sheets to line the interior and layer the exterior. 
The smaller sheets were what I used to create the Rosey Posey Rosette and the Steno Note sheet.  I always use hot glue on the rosette because it's the only adhesive that works every time for me.  I threaded my button and tied off some double looped hemp with a cute bow, then hot glued the button on my rosette.  I used the combination of the rosette and the steno note paper as a "latch" of sorts to hold my box closed.
This little template almost held a third hand sanitizer!  Not bad for one of the smaller MTME templates.  Especially considering this one only requires one sheet of cs to cut the template.  Oh, and I only used one strip of tape to adhere the template together!  Bonus if you ask me ;]  The REAL WIN is the fact that this little treasure is FREE in the MTME store!  Check it out and share with us on Facebook if you whip something up!!

Thanks for checking in today.  Please be sure to swing by the rest of our talented DT's blogs for a healthy dose of inspiration:
Hope you and yours are staying dry and safe from the storm this weekend.  I don't know about those of you enduring the storm, but it sure makes me feel crafty!  Helps that we aren't taking a direct hit, I suppose, but I hope to take advantage of it!

That is darling, Kristin! What a great little gift and neat that it holds at least 2 bottles, so you can give someone a variety!
