Today’s Back to School project was inspired by our Paper Party theme. At first I was stumped as to how to incorporate a party for Back to School because there typically aren’t too many school parties right as the kids go back. But then I thought… what if we sent our kiddos off to their first day of school with their very own personal party in a bag?! FUN!
I originally conceived of this all going into a brown paper lunch sack but quickly realized the contents wouldn’t fit and switched to this kraft handled bag. It actually works out better because of the supportive bottom. I combined papers and embellishments from Solstice, Hello Sunshine, and Pen Pals.
Every party needs some decorations and this is my favorite item in the bag! The “hello smarty” banner is tied on to two kitchen skewers and can be stuck in the two apples (snack!) to stand up and adorn the student’s desk or lunch table.
Thanks for stopping by today and CHEERS to all of you sending your little (and not so little) ones back to school soon!
