Back to School...Day 3

Welcome Back!
Wow! What an exciting week it has been so far with all these wonderful projects. We hope that you have seen something that you have liked or inspired you to create a card or gift for someone you know.

Here is my next project.
  Actually, this is the before shot. I made 3 stair step cards to be used as awards.

I know that students LOVE to be recognized for their outstanding achievements, but I also know they are not very organized or careful at times (especially when it is time to go home at the end of the day). Therefore, I created these academic awards: Reading, Math, and Science. Students will be more careful with taking these home to show mom and dad rather than craming it into the bottom of their bookbag.

Radical Reader Award
Mighty Math Medal
Super Scientist Award
Remember to leave a comment. I am curious to know if this is a card your child would like to receive as an award. Now hop on over to see the others...Here is the list again. : )

After I created these awards, I realized they were perfect for two challenges: Alphabet Challenge (ovals) and The Craft Den ~ Anything Goes (folds).


Stay Creative,

  3. My sons would not be impressed, but then again, they're 31 and 34 and prefer to bring home paychecks, LOL! Now my granddaughter, at only 2, would love to bring something like this home from her little school. GREAT idea!

  5. I think any kid would be proud to bring an award like that home. I know the awards my kids brought home weren't anything like that, and most of their teachers were awesome! But... that was quite a few years ago. :) My grandkids would love it, great idea!
