First Day of School

Well, it's that time of year again - the kids are off to school!  This year my kids are back at the same school which means getting both of them dressed and fed and ready and out the door at the same time!   

I still pack their lunches for them in the mornings, and every so often I like to sneak in a little note from me, just to let them know I'm thinking of them and love them!  This is what they found in their lunches yesterday, the first day of school:

I used my very first Reverse Confetti goodies to create these little clipboards (EEK so cute!!) with notes attached. I die cut the posted note confetti cut from some kraft paper and the cute little clip from some silver paper to make it look more realistic.  I stamped the sentiments from the coordinating posted note stamp set onto some PTI paper that is lined to look like school paper.  I only glued the paper at the top, under the clip, so it would be able to lift up at the bottom - just like a real clipboard!

I also used their quick card panels for the backgrounds.  So easy!!  And I just love all the sentiments in this posted note set - perfect for so many different occasions.  I'm sure my kids will be finding more of these in their lunches throughout the year!

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Awwww!! If I were a school kid, I'd love getting one of these in my lunch! These are just so sweet Laura! I'm guessing the kidlets liked them too. Bev

  2. awwwww...super cute Laura! I bet they loved them! Cute pic of the kiddos!

  3. Really fun idea, Laura! I love how the polka dot background makes your clipboards and notes pop on your cards! I'll bet your kiddos were happily surprised :)
    Thanks for sharing the photo of your children...they're really cute and look excited to start off a new school year!


Thanks for taking the time to comment! It makes my day!
