BACK TO SCHOOL KIT!


For today's blog hop, I am featuring Woodware's "School Tots" stamp set.  This set includes school-themed embellishment images to use with your designs!  I love that these kiddos are in school uniforms and have a fun little back pack, books, crayons and such!


All the images on my project are stamped with Versafine Onyx Black ink and colored with Copics.  The DP is "Josie" by Elsie Papers.




For my back to school kit, I first created the carrier using two Sizzix Bigs Box 2 die cuts.  (To see details how to make these, see my post on Double Handled Boxes here.)  I adhered the two together and decorated the sides with the little boy image and several of the embellishment images.

This is the reverse side of the kit.  The little stack of books is another image from the same set, and it's wrapped with hemp twine!  I also added a dark blue mini binder clip with a ribbon knotted at the end for more decor!  I filled it up with the little composition book on one site (shown below) and a little mini office-supplies kit on the other side ($1.00 find from Michael's).  You can put in snacks, gift cards, notes, any kind of fun little surprises or gifts for for your special back-to-school tot!!  


I altered a mini Composition book by randomly stamping the embellishment images from the set and spelling out "Darren" (my grand-nephew's name!) with chipboard letters from Momenta.

I created a little bookmark using a red paperclip, scalloped circle punches, and the apple image from the set.

This fits perfectly inside the pocket of this carrier!



I just loved making this back-to-school kit with my Woodware stampset!  The images are so easy to color and create with!!  I hope I've inspired you to give them a try!
