Sunshine is my OT therapist. I've been working with her since March 7th - right after my 1st surgery. I ♥ Sunshine! She is so caring and yet pushy (because all therapists need to do a little pushing). She has done such a great job. I am having another surgery next Wednesday. I will continue to work with Sunshine until I finally get the word from my doctor.
4 months of working with Sunshine has built such a relationship. When you work as much with someone as I have with her, you can't help but to build a bond. Without her, my finger would not be as far as it is. This being said, when I found out her birthday was earlier this month, I knew I HAD to make something for her.
I made her this super cute Post-It note holder. I CASEd it from Angie Kennedy Juda. I also CASEd the sunshine from a photo I saw on Pinterest. I have no idea who's original idea it is, nor if I made it the same way, but I did figure out a way to make it.
Punch 2 circles from the 1-3/4" punch. Punch 16 banners from the banner punch. I sponged one circle and all of the banner pieces. I sponged the 8 back banner pieces using a slightly darker color than the front banner pieces. Adhere 8 banner pieces to the back on the sponged circle - spreading them out. Attach dimensionals (cut in half) to the bottom of the remaining 8 banner pieces and attach to the back on the circle with the banner pieces already attached - offsetting them from the first ones you did, so you can see them in-between. Attach the second circle to the back to cover everything up and to give you something to adhere the sun down.

This is such a simple gift to make. It's also such a WOW! Everyone I've made one for absolutely LOVE it!
I made on for Mother's Day, at my May Stampin' Nite. All the ladies who attended just loved this simple project. Be sure to check back tomorrow to see that one.
