Back to School 2016 – Teacher Survival Kits

Well, with the summer holidays over, it was back to school yesterday for Little Miss Papercraft.  A new school, a new class and new adventures… all with her best friend who joined her for the change of school.  They have done almost everything together since birth – it’s so sweet!

Do you remember my teacher survival kits from last year?  The teachers loved them, so I thought I’d do another version for the teachers this year.

My theme was things to help when the classroom journey got a bit bumpy … panadol (the rapid kind!) for those headaches, tissues for the tears of joy & frustration, hand gel for 5 year old germs, lip balm to keep it smooth & chocolate because chocolate makes everything better!!!  Really, I could have just filled the basket with chocolate, but the germs …

All the goodies were packaged up in a custom little Berry Basket using school colours, with a ‘for you’ Birthday Blooms tag {how gorgeous is that font!}.

And of course, I had to make a coordinating note card for a quick little message.

Yep, there it is again – the awesome Sale-A-Bration ‘Hello’ stamp set and inked for the first time, a sentiment from the ‘Beautiful Ride’ stamp set.  I can’t wait to make a card using the fabulous car, but for now, I thought the ‘journey begins’ was perfect for the occasion.

  1. I was just thinking about making a spa gift basket using the baskit die. What size celephane bag did you use? Thanks

    1. Good thought – it would be perfect with some lovely spa products in it! The cello bags are 8″ wide x 10″ high (20cm x 25cm)- a snug fit, but a good one.
