Back to School, Part II

Welcome Back Crafty Friends,

Thank you for stopping by yesterday to see my Back to School projects.

 Here is Day 2.
First, this is a picture of the my school. My class is on the top floor just above the horse. (You can see a little bit of the windows.) It has a great view of the tree and the students enjoy watching the squirrels chase one another.

For today's project, I used the outline of our school as inspiration. I found the perfect cut of a historic school on the Heritage Cricut cartridge. I cut out 23 schools (and shadows). I used Kraft paper and put it through the wave crimper, so it would match the banner.
 I made a banner for each card shaped just like yesterday's WELCOME sign. The banners were cut from the April Showers Cricut cartridge.
 I used an assembly line format to create these cards.
I made 21 cards so far (with two on hold) since our numbers are currently 19 - 20 students per class. There are 3 different sayings on the front...
Welcome Grade 4
8th Street
Welcome Back
The inside sentiment reads: Happy 1st Day of School (Pink by Design ~ School is Cool set).

Are your kids ready to go back to school?
Do you teachers have a theme picked out for the year?

Thanks again for stopping by!
Please come back tomorrow for Day 3.

Stay Creative,
