Happy hump day all!!!
Today I'd like to share a little Back To School Survival kit I made for my grandsons teacher.
His first day of kindergarten was Monday. He looked like such a big boy and was so excited to go to school. I thought it would be fun for him to take his teacher a little something.
I went to one of my favorite sources for inspiration - Pinterest!!!
I found lots of variations of this theme and I kind of combined several to come up with my little gift basket.
I found most of the items for my little basket at the Dollar Store, so it didn't cost me an arm and a leg to fill my survival kit with lots of fun stuff.
Some of the items were fairly small, so I put them in a plastic, divided container, which I also purchased at the Dollar Store. It was in the craft section.
I decorated the top of the plastic container too!!
I created this sign in my print shop program using a red cross image I downloaded from the internet. I printed it out on sticker paper which you can purchase at Staples and then I trimmed it down before sticking it to the top of my container.
You can download this pdf file here.
I also created this list of all the items included in my basket, listing the significance of each item.
I had Jeff sign it and I rolled it up, tied it with a ribbon and popped it in my basket with all of my goodies.
A close up of the description so you can read it better.
If you'd like to download a copy of this list you may do so here.
For the outside of my little basket I dusted off my trusty Cricut machine and pulled out several cartridges to cut out my apple, pencil and the teachers name. Of course I first had surrounded my basket with some cute school themed paper.
My pencil was cut at 2 1/2" with Locker Talk, my apple was cut at 4" with Preserves; and my letters were cut at 3/4" with Cutttin Up.
My grandson said she loved it!!!
