A+ Grading Block using Renew

A+ Grading Block using Renew

This is Barbara bringing you another teacher’s projecting using one of the stunning Nouveau Girls… Renew!  I love using real stamps because I can be posh about the paper I use – unfortunately, my printer is too picky about the paper it will accept when printing digi stamps so it’s always blissful to enjoy a good blending card stock.  😀  So this is one of the reasons why I love these Nouveau Girls so much – plus they’re a dream to color!!  Anyway, back to my project…

The project I made today is a gift for a teacher which I call an A+ Grading Block and can be very helpful when grading papers!  Really.  😀  All the teacher has to do is spin the dial on the top to figure out which grade to give to the students.  LOL  I thought it would be a fun desk decoration and even the students would love to come up and give it a spin, I’m sure.   It was fun to make as well and was a lot like making five different tags. 

I started off with a 3″x3″ wooden cube and covered each side with decorative paper.  Then I used an inkpad to age the edges with a dark brown.  I had made a similar one before using Grow but I needed at least one more so my girls would stop fighting over which one got to give it to their teacher.  😀  Luckily it was Teacher Appreciation week last week so they each of the teachers received a block with some goodies.  They were a big hit with the teachers so I’m glad that they enjoyed them.  Now I have two more cubes left and will have to come up with something new… any ideas?

Thanks for coming by and checking out my project.  I hope you’ve been inspired and don’t forget about the fun festivities coming up with weekend on our Facebook Page – it’s going to be a smashing fun day!  There is a challenge that you can get working on right now too – so you can play along Saturday – join us HERE!!
