DCWV Giveaway & Teacher Project

This week was my 1st grader’s teacher’s birthday–so we made her a little ‘gift.’

Here’s what we used- the new DCWV Carnival Stack (which I LOVE!), the DCWV Chalked Up mat stack (which is a MUST!) and the Pink by Design Sweet Grams stamp set.

What I love about the Sweet Grams stamp set– is it allows you to make everyday candy into a beautiful, yummy gift!

First you will need to take a sheet of solid cardstock- and cut it to 7 x 9 5/8 inches.

Score the long side at 4 1/8 & 5 1/2 – fold on the score lines.

This will make a ‘book’ the perfect size for a box of WHOPPERS!!


Then using printed card stock, stamps, chalkboard paper and chalk- decorate your book! I like how it looks like a chalkboard on the front of the book.

You can use a repositionable adhesive to adhere the Whoppers straight to the card stock back and binding.


Don’t forget to decorate the ‘spine.’


That’s it- Easy Peasy- and a quick way to make a Whopper of a Gift! 🙂

(and if you make the cuts ahead of time- it’s easy enough for a 1st grader to put together)

 Now for the Giveaway!  You guys wanted another DCWV giveaway, which means you must love them as much as I do! So, here it is!

I am giving away a 12×12 All Chalked Up Stack along with an All Chalked Up mat stack to one lucky commenter!  These stacks are so much fun!!  Just comment below and extra entry if you link this post somewhere (FB, Pinterest, Twitter, Blog, etc) and tell me you did so.

Ready, Set, GO!

Have a great Friday everyone!

  1. How adorable! What a super cute gift idea. I would love this stack (but can’t find it in any of the stores here) for my daughters school scrapbook. She doesn’t start until September but I’ve already started.

  2. I love that card, so cute. Also love that there is another chalkboard cardstock i must get my hands on, I saw the mat stack this week at Michaels but it wasn’t where it was supposed to be and I already had playtime from DCWV and didn’t give it a second look, now I wish I would have bought it. Great card!
