Welcome Back Crafty Friends,
I hope your weekend is off to a great start. I appreciate you stopping by and checking out my school series. So far I have shared the WELCOME banner, a centerpiece, and the student cards.
Here is Day 3.
I created treat bags for each of the students using the same color scheme and the school mascot. Currently there are Smarties in each bag, but I am going to add a few other treats before the first day of school. I really want to get some Hershey kisses and add a school theme stamp to the bottom.
The 21 treat bags were cut from the Plantin Schoolbook Cricut cartridge at 5 1/4" using kraft paper. A few weeks ago I cut a variety of bags/boxes and this size was the most practical.
I used the Picot Edge Circle Spellbinder just like I did on the pinwheels. The eagle was cut from the Wrap It Up Cricut cartridge. Each treat bag is closed with red raffia and a blue tag was glued to the handle to tie in the school colors.
I want to say Thank You to my children. My daughter helped cut out and emboss the Spellbinders, and my son even helped while he was home from college for the weekend by gluing the white circles on. Great team work!
Although I am not quite ready for school yet, I sure do feel good that I have a warm welcome planned for the parents and students. I have one other project planned, but I cannot complete it yet. I have a candy basket in my class that I need to retrieve when the custodians are done. I am going to decorate using the same theme. I will be sure to share once it is complete.
Thanks again for stopping by!
I will announce the winner of the Exploring Cricut Christmas in July hop tomorrow. Sorry for the delay!
