Back to School

Thursday, September 1, 2011
Next week our grand children Tyler and Gracie will be back in school. Guess it is time to post what I made for them to bring to their teachers. I REALLY wanted to steal my friend Rachel's idea of what she was making for her kiddos to take to their teachers because she is a very crafty and inventive person and I LOVED her idea, BUT... thought I better get inventive and creative on my own (sigh*)

For Gracie's teacher (Kindergarten) I set out three ideas and this is the one she chose

I used a little old with the new...
Tart And Tangy (retired)
It's A Wrap Occasions (new)

The technique I used on the apple that is on the black card stock
is called Chalkboard Technique
I will post a "How To" on the basket tomorrow.

When I asked Tyler (4th grade) what he wanted Gramma to make for his teacher he told me it couldn't be "girly"

Tyler was okay with this wise teacher owl and a skinny sleeve of Peanut Butter M&M's in the Hudsonville School colors of Maize and Blue!

Have a great school year kids!!

Love, Gramma

Pin It Now!

Your back to school gifties are great!!!
I love the idea of using the school colors in the cello bag - I'm gonna file that one away in my memory.
FYI - You can steal my ideas any time :)
