Also, with this challenge you are to use items that have been in your stash for awhile. The items I used in my stash were the heart rhinestones (four years old at least), stickles (I have had them forever and have just started to use them) and all the paper.

Just a Note

Hi all, I wanted to share a project with you that I made using a cricut craft room freebie. This music note and saying were offered in a music layout a couple of months ago. I made five sets, each a different color and with coordinating homemade envelopes. I am making gift boxes for them as well and will share them in a future post.  I think they would be perfect for a music teacher!! I hope you enjoy them and find inspiration through them.
