Gift Bag!

Hi!!  This is Lori from Scrappin'MyStressAway!!  This week at Sweet Sassy Diva's, our theme is Back to School projects.  I bought some extra school supplies and hand sanitizer to take to Tanner's Back to School night/Meet the Teacher night.

I started out by cutting a piece of red cardstock to fit the front of the bag (8x10 for this bag), then cutting the school book paper 1/4" smaller to layer on top.
Next, I grabbed my Gypsy and grabbed these books from the Recess Lite Cartridge sized to 2.41 inches.

I cut them out using red, blue, green and white cardstock.

I grabbed the Back to School image also from Recess sized to 3.10 inches.

I cut them out using red, blue and green cardstock.

I put the images on the bag using my ATG adhesive.

Here is a sneak peek to what I put inside (so far)....maybe I should have used a bigger bag!!
In our school, they can only require the basic school supplies for our children.  I know that the teachers provide most of the extras out of their own pockets.  I like to donate what I can...plus I just LOVE back to school supplies so it's a win-win!!!

Thank you for having me over today Bobbi Jo!!

What a super fabulous idea Lori!!!! I love this bag, it is so cute and festive!! Perfect for teachers as with all the budget cuts they just can't have everything they need without buying it. So kind of you to do this too!

Great idea! I also love school supplies. Always my favorite time of year and there are some really great ones this year. Our grandson starts Kindergarten on Thursday.

I'd like to thank you for all of us teachers out here! I am an instructional assistant and work with small groups of kiddos offering reading support. When supply budgets (like school, PTO, etc) are made we are not included. I know for one I spend on my kiddos each year. I've spent $30+ so far and this school year hasn't even started yet. lol. Your kiddos teacher will appreciate it!! TFS.
