For a Friend

One of my good friends last day at her 'old' job is Friday. She's my two older girls school nurse. She is the one who bandages my kids when they get there hand caught in the door, run into the door, fall and scrap a knee, get a splinter, or just need some TLC. She is not going far off, she's going to a local high school. Crazy, yes she might be, I hear high school kids are SCARY!!! She will be closer to her kids, same school, so that is a plus. I sure am going to miss her.

I decided to make her this little band aid tin and a few band aids to go with it. The band aids are just one inch by 3 1/2 inch strips and I used my one inch square punch for the middle. I stamped little dots with CTMH's "Dots All Around" and the heart with Scrappy Cats, heart stamp. Then I sponged the edges and adhered the middle to the strip. I put a few little sayings on the back of each band aid. Then for the tin, I used Foof-a-la "Hall Pass" paper and adhered it to the tin with red double sided sticky tape. Next I used SU's ribbon for around the top and the bow. I had some left over green that I decided to add to the mix. I cut a strip to fit the top and used my Marvy corner rounder. Then for the tag, I used SU's "Happy Hearts" (stamped in CTMH's Vineyard Berry" and CTMH's "Whooo Loves You" stamp set for the sentiment (stamped in Jim Holtz Distress Ink brushed corduroy). I free cut the red cardstock and then punched a hole and placed an eyelet. I attached the ribbon with stretchy silver elastic. On the back of the tin, I put a little band aid. I used SU's slit punch and then cut a square to match. I also sponged the edges and added dots with a marker.
