First Day of School Signs/ Props for Back to School Pictures


Hey Everyone!

Finally getting back into some crafting! Can't believe that the summer is almost over and my kiddies are headed back to school in a few short weeks. I know many schools have already started but I'm thankful for the late start this year :)

So today I want to share with you my latest Fleurette Bloom DT project. 
First day of school signs I made for my kids. I will be using them to take photos of them when they head back to school. (I'll post those pics when they happen). They are super simple to make and put together!


Here is what you will need to make your own:

Fonts:
Chalk Hand Lettering
Return to Sender
Travelling Typewriter

SVG Files:
Apple and Pencil - from School Days Kit - files were grouped together and resized.
The apple was then added to the top of the sign and grouped on to the top circle layer of the tag file. Then both the finished circle (sign) and pencil were just print and cut using the Silhouette Cameo.
Tag file (from coffee mug) - from Valentine Be Mine SVG Kit - Enlarged and cut (bottom layer only).

Paper:
Recollections card stock for the Print and Cut.
The bottom layer paper comes from the Simple Stories - Smarty Pants Paper Pack.

To Assemble:
Glue top 3 layers of the sign together, I used my ATG tape runner for that.
Attach the top of the pencil to the bottom of the sign with some glue.
To the back of the pencil, I glued a Popsicle stick. This adds strength to the paper and something for the kids to hold on to. Add a ribbon to the handle and embellish as you like ;)

For those of you that are visual people like me,
here is a video that I filmed while putting one of the signs together. Enjoy and if you haven't yet subscribe! I'm going to try an film more future projects ;)


Hope this post isn't too late for you, and it inspires you to make some of your own back to school First day signs!

For a limited time, you can get the School Days collection AND the ABC and 123 digi paper pack FREE with a purchase of $8.98 or more at Fleurette Bloom! So get them while you can :)

UPDATE... Here is super cute pic of the kids with their signs on their first day Back to School!



Thanks SO much for stopping by!
Happy Crafting  :)

Pencil Treat Box and Classroom Clipboard for Teachers | SVGCuts

Are you all doing the happy dance?!

Today my kiddos went back to school! Yippee!!! Don't get me wrong I loved having them home for the Summer but honestly, it will be nice to have routine again and some quiet time! Hopefully, it won't be too stressful for the teachers ;) Thank-YOU teachers!

Hopefully, some treats will make the teacher's day a little better! 

Here is the Pencil Treat Box I made for my son's Teacher! Perfect gift box for the first day of school.

Even though the kids have only been gone for a little while I'm already looking forward to picking them up and hearing all about their first day back! Hopefully, they weren't too much for the teachers to handle!

Thanks for stopping by!

Back to School Project Ideas | Teacher and Student Gifts



I hope everyone is enjoying the long weekend... I, unfortunately, have to work today... yup, the life of a nurse! Today, I wanted to share with you some of the back to school projects that I made for the kids and teachers over the last few years.

Are your children back to school yet? Are you all sad or are you all doing the happy dance? My kids started school last week, thankfully it went better than expected, only a few tears were shed... and hopefully no more this week!


This teacher's Apple was the very first SVG Cuts project I had ever made, way before my blog and way before I had my Silhouette! My how far I have come and learned from those days! This file is actually a pumpkin that I made to look like am an apple, before Mary had created an apple of her own! The file comes from the PICK A PUMPKIN KIT here.


Here is the second project I made from SVG Cuts... never shared before! This one comes from SVG Cuts Miss Karen's Back to School SVG Kit. The worm from the apple also comes from here!


I was so excited when SVGCuts came out with an actual Apple file! Click here for all the details from a previous post.


Here are some teacher appreciation gifts I made for the end of the school year a few years ago.


Find out how I also created these etched glasses here!


Here are some personalized water containers I made for my kids a while ago... now they take them to school each day to stay hydrated!


This has got to be one of my favorite projects! See how I made this DIY Canvas bag, so easy and useful!


Stay organized with this super quick project! DIY Desk organizer, your kids will love it... you may too!


If you've been following my blog you'll know this was a recent project I made for my son's teacher this year. 3D sneaker... so cool!


And finally here is the cute little backpack I made for my daughter's teacher this year. The perfect little bag to stuff with treats!

Well, there they are... Back to School Project Ideas, sure to put a smile on someone's face :) Hopefully, they have inspired you to share with someone headed back to school!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
Happy Crafting :)
