School Days

So, it's that time of year when kids are getting ready to go back to school.  Since we don't have any young children and my stepson lives with his mom, I don't experience the back-to-school frenzy.  However, a dear friend of mine has twins and they are getting ready to start Kindergarten this year.  They are the sweetest boys and in order to celebrate their 1st day of school, I thought I'd make them a little "treat".

I made these cute little treat bags for them.  The bags aren't quite complete yet.  I still need to go to the store to get a couple more things to add to them but I thought I'd go ahead and share the bag toppers that I created.

The background paper is from the DCWV "The Glitter Stack".  I cut the paper for the topper at 5 x 6" and then scored it at 2 1/2" and folded it in half - the final size of the topper is 2 1/2" x 6".  The school supplies are from the Simply Charmed cartridge and are cut at 1 1/2" each and the "School Days" sentiment is from the 3 Birds on Parade cartridge and is cut at 1".  Although you can't really see it in the picture, I added some Glossy Accents to the scissor blades and the glue trail to add a little bit extra.

I also made the cute little apple paper clips using the Creative Memories Cheerful Seasons cartridge.  The apples are cut at 1 1/2" also.  I used pop-dots to adhere the two sides of the apple to the paper clip.

I really love how the bag toppers turned out...I hope the boys enjoy them too. :)

Have a crafty day.....
