Good morning! Beth from Beth's Beauties here today. If you have school age kids or grandkids, you probably have back to school on your mind like I do! I always love giving my kids a little treat for the first day and Annie's Paper Boutique just released several new printables for school that made that task a snap. I used three of the four new printables on today's project plus both of our featured twines of the month, Cranberry, and Totally Red.2x8" Zip Bags. They are the absolute perfect fit for 6 pencils or many other combinations of school supplies or goodies! You can see below that I added erasers and pencils to one while keeping the second with only pencils inside.
All patterned papers used for today's projects are from Echo Park's Back To School 6x6" paper pad. the treat on the left was dressed up with a belly band, Cranberry Trendy Twine, Cranberry Tag-It, a die cut dark gray circle and a Happy First Day of School Print & Punch Tag. For the second treat bag, I added the Let's Start This Year Off Write Printable Bag Topper, which fits these 2x8" Zip Bags perfectly, to the top. I then added a belly band embellished with Cranberry Trendy Twine and Twisted Lime Sequins.
Next up, I created little notecards to match the pencil treat bags. They are made with more of the patterned paper mentioned earlier, embellished with label die cuts, Totally Red Trendy Twine and a sentiment stamp from the APB Smile stamp set. I love how the one really looks like a composition notebook! I rounded the corners with my Corner Chomper to mimic the corners of the labels.Cranberry Trendy Twine, added a Cranberry Chunky Tag-It and a Here's to a Bright Year Printable Tag which I rounded the corners on and popped up with foam dimensionals. Literally a 2 minute project, but she will love it to pieces. Be sure to check out the printable I didn't use this time called Little Pick Me Ups Printable Tags that are perfect for school or any occasion!
Here's what I used from Annie's Paper Boutique:
