Back to School- HSS#79

What perfect timing for me this week! Hand Stamped Sentiment's challenge today is to create something for Back to School. And, being a teacher, that is exactly what frame of mind I am in!


 I once again came across Bath and Body Work's little antibacterial holders while out shopping. They continue to came up with the cutest "flavors!" And, right now they have "lunch box flavors." So, of course I had to make a lunch box for them! Ha!

 I used a little square from last years gingham pattern. You could use anything that resembled a napkin, even a real napkin!
 These two flavors happen to be Juice Box and PB and J. There were others like Pretzels and .... now I can't even remember!
Instead of making a fancy punched holder for them, I just put a glue dot on the bottom of them and placed them on the bottom of the box.  Wouldn't this be a sweet surprise for your kids on their first day of school? Or maybe the bus driver or teacher? Yep, I think so!

Supplies:
Stamps: School Lines
Ink and paper: Basic Grey, Real Red CS and DSP, Pawsitive Prints (retired)
Other: Spiral Punch (retired), mini clips, twine, Ribbon Punch, Round Tab Punch (retired), 1/2" circle punch, vintage trinket brads, Real Red Grosgrain Ribbon

Now, what do you need to make for back to school? I am sure your child's new teacher would LOVE a special something on their first day of school. Even a simple card telling them how you hope this year is great and how your so happy your child is in their class. You would be surprised at how much a simple hand written card means to a teacher! Make sure you hop back over to Hand Stamped Sentiments to show us what you make!

See ya tomorrow!
