Back to School Fun Packet
Hello Imaginisce fans!
Back to School continues here on the blog and I’ve got a little “fun packet” as I am calling it. Generally speaking, I think back to school is fun for parents, and for the younger kids. My kids are going in to 5th and 7th grades and I can’t say they are jumping up for joy about school starting again. Don’t get me wrong, they like school, but I think they love summertime: riding their bikes all day, playing in the pool, baseball in the park with friends, popsicles, and staying out and up late. But we’ve got a little family friend who is going in to second grade. Now she is really excited about starting school. So we decided to mail her a little fun packet to add to her excitement.
Using Imaginisce’s Welcome Spring collection, I punched out some confetti using a standard hole punch. And then I die cut some 2s – for 2nd grade – and the word happy, and added in a pre-made die cut.
And then put all of this in to a little glassine bag.
I folded the bag top over, and added a strip of tickets and then topped that with the happy that I had die cut.
I wanted to use a clothespin to fasten the top, but didn’t want it plain. So I glued a fun piece of Welcome Spring patterned paper with a little birdie on it to a clothespin. And then I trimmed off the excess and filed around the edges to roughen it up a bit.
Lastly, I added a bit of baker’s twine for some added color and texture.
And then sent this little fun packet off to Palm Springs, California!
