Today I am sharing a Teacher gift using 3-d Samantha Walker handle tuck box  and Traditions paper collection!  I created a Mouse pad using Samantha Walker fabric Serenata collection.

 
Teacher gift set by Daniela Dobson
The finished mouse pad is 7 3/4” square and it does fit in the box. The box is perfect if you wanted to include something else, in addition, to the mouse pad.

Cut two 8 1/2 “ squares from two different pieces of fabric and one 8 1/2’ square from felt. Make a little sandwich by stacking together a piece of felt, one fabric square right side up and another on top of that, right side down. Stitch around the edge with a 3/4” seam allowance, leaving about 1 – 2” opening at one end for turning. Top stitch around the edge using a decorative stitch.
 
Step 1 Daniela Dobson
The finished square is 7 3/4”. I am keeping this one and making more. Really a simple project.

For the tag I stamped a border and a sentiment from For All You Do stamp set. I cut it out and added it to a cut tag from Traditions paper collection with 3D Foam Adhesive. I added a little flower at the bottom that I sprayed with Heidi Swapp Color Shine.

For the box, I just cut it out using my Silhouette Cameo and put it together. The only adhesive you need is for the bottom of the box. I stamped a little sentiment from the same stamp set on a cut tag and added it to the box with twine.
