Back to School!



Ok, I know I am probably a bit early, but before you know it the kiddos will be headed back to school! Every store I go in happens to be full of school supplies and my daughter is off to 4 year old kindergarten this fall so we are already making purchases.


I picked up this plastic school box for her and didn't think twice when I put it in the cart. Then when unpacking the bag I got this great idea to alter it. So that is exactly what I did. It wasn't easy because the patterned you see on top are all at different levels. Some are nested down and some are raised. I had to use thin paper to make patterns and then cut and trace on the patterned cardstock I wanted to use. Eventually I made it all work and then embellished it!

Meliah will certainly have a "1 of a kind" school box. She is lucky to have such a crafty mommy!
