We are going back to school on Sept 7th. And we've had a rocky start to the year already. They tried to put my son in a combined first and second grade class with a very inexperienced, subpar teacher. So I had to push and assert my parental rights to get him put back in the class he was originally assigned to. His teacher has picked up 4 additional students already, so I think she needs a special thank you on the first day and this is for her.
Paper bags was a tough challenge for me. I'm really not even a fan of kraft paper <gasp!>. I decided to morph my bag into well, a bag, LOL. But a smaller bag, and one that displays the homemade treats as much as carries them.
I made tags using the jar set and mounted them on the notebook page. I embossed the page using the letters background, but you can't see it here. The jars are full of blueberry and sweet pepper jelly, thus the blue and green. The "handle" of the sack is just ribbon that I braided in primary school colors. It's just Offray ribbon from their outlet. At $1.25 per roll, I could sacrifice as much as I wanted. The thought of using that much PTI ribbon made me cringe. :-)
