My kids start school tomorrow morning. I decided this morning that I needed to make my daughter's elementary school teachers a small gift for the first day of school. Since I am SO excited about my new bind it all, I made them each a little notebook. :)
I will go into detail during a later post about HOW to use a bind it all as well as some useful tips. :)
Yes, I sewed on the front panels of the notebooks. LOL I simply can't stop. It is WAY easier than faux stitching and I just love the way it looks. I hope you are not getting bored with it. LOL
I used Infuse patterned paper from Basic Grey for the front panel and for covering the chipboard letter. I used my WONDERFUL new Heidi Swapp clear flowers (Thank you Marlene) and finished them off with a simple RSVP pen with matching paper rolled and inserted inside. It was a quickish and easy project to make and the girls will enjoy having something to greet their teachers with.
On Bailey's school supply list, she needed a clipboard. As soon as she saw the word clipboard she asked me if I could decorate one for her. :) That's my girl! LOL Of course I HAD to do it. :) Her favorite patterned paper is Blush by Basic Grey. She knows it by name and can point out cards in the gallery that have used it. LOL She even has a 6 X 6 Blush pad of paper that she bought at the LSS. :) I made the clipboard very flat without embellishments on the writing surface since I think they will actually be USING it for it's intended purpose. LOL I didn't want anything to interfere with her school work, so beside the ribbon tied to the clip, there is no frill on it. LOL She loves it and is excited to use it. :)
Have a wonderful day and I hope all you other Moms that have kids going back to school tomorrow have a smooth and happy morning. :) I am hoping for smiles and no tears! (that includes my hubby and I LOL)
