OSAT Blog Hop ~ Back to School



Hi there and welcome to this month's OSAT Blog Hop...Back to School! As a teacher this is my favorite shopping time of the year...nothing like brand new pencils, Pink Pearl Erasers, Sharpies and whiteboard markers!
Now that I have a child of my own in school (he will be starting 1st grade in September) I make it a point to help out his teacher when it comes to supplies for the classroom especially with budget cuts these days and how much we spend out of our own pocket for our classroom...
Here is what I made for his teacher...I hope she likes it!


When I started thinking about this project I wanted to do something different and while going through my supplies I found this metal box that I bought a couple years back (you never know when you might need it!) The box is from Provo Crafts...I dusted it off and wrapped it with Bella Blvd. Star Student "Brainiac" which I picked up this past June at the Scrapbook Expo...I used SU! Real Red Cotton Ribbon along the bottom to help "pop" out all the fun colors from the paper...My son's school mascot is the fox and I pulled out SU! Fox and Friends kit to make a couple 3x3 cards that she can use through out the year...I also clipped (from Recollections) a little fox to the container using SU! Whisper White and Old Olive...the stitched circle die cut is another goody I pick up from the Scrapbook Expo made by Memory Box...I stamped the fox in SU! Close to Cocoa..for the 3x3 cards I pulled them out from my drawer...I believe the blue is SU! Bashful Blue and SU! Real Red...the ribbon is also SU! in Tango Twist, Lost Lagoon, Pear Pizzaz, and Real Red...I tied them off with SU! Linen Thread...In the box I put pencils, pens, markers, crayons, and most import hand sanitizer (which we always seem to run out of!)
Thanks for stopping by! 
~Happy Stamping~
I hope your kids have a great school year!
Wynne
