Back to School – Party in a Bag

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 had a ton of fun creating this Party in a Bag.  It includes the decorative bag, cupcake box, holder and topper, bag of school themed confetti, and a desk banner.

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.

Naturally we needed a treat in here, too.  Cupcake time!  I cut the cupcake box on my Cameo and created a matching topper with another apple to continue the theme from the bag.

And the last touch is just for cute factor.  Confetti! Tiny red apples, yellow pencils, and blue “I<3school” shapes will be super sweet spread out around all the goodies.

It almost makes me want to go back to school too.  Almost.  😉

Thanks for stopping by today and CHEERS to all of you sending your little (and not so little) ones back to school soon!
