Back to School...Day 2

 Thank you for coming back if you were here yesterday for our First Annual Back to School Blog Hop, and "Welcome" if you are here for the first time.

Here is today's project:

I am creating "Back to School" cards for each of my students. I have only created 10 at this time because I do not know the exact number of students I will have in each grade (4th or 5th). Once I get a final roster I will be able to make the others. 

I used craft paper for the base card. It reminds me of the brown sacks that kids use for their lunches. I embossed the cardstock because I knew students would love to feel the raised dots and swirls. I used a 1"strip of school decorative paper. The school house is red, white and blue (just like the grade) since those are our school colors.    


This card happens to be perfect for the Paper Playtime. The challenge this week is Back to School. Be sure to visit Janis for more wonderful projects.
