Hi Everyone!  School will be starting back soon so I thought I would make something for Ms. Pennington who was Jacob's teacher last year.  Just a little something to welcome her back to the new school year.  I tried to find out today what class Jacob will be in next year so that I could make his new teacher a little welcome gift too, but no luck.  They keep those lists locked up like Fort Knox until Open House the week before school starts. 

I found the instructions for a card purse on Splitcoaststampers.  The directions were very easy to follow.  Here is the link to the website

I've ALWAYS loved the smell of a new box of Crayons.  We were shopping for school supplies this weekend and Jacob caught me sniffing a "new" box of Crayons.  He said, "Mom, what are you doing?"  So I explained my love of the smell.  YES, he did think I was crazy but I digress.  So it was with that thought of crayons that I decided to make the notecards/purse below:

Using Design Studio, I welded the square and tall rectangle from George and the Crayons from My Community together to form the notecard.  The picture below is the screen shot of the cut file in Design Studio.  I have this cut file saved and would be willing to share with you - all you have to do is ask.  I cut the notecards out of primary color cardstock - red, orange, and yellow.

I cut the layers for the crayons out of pattern paper to match the front of the notecard box.  This is included in the cutfile along with the words "Back To School" from the Celebrate From Flourish cartridge.  

I think they turned out cute and the only thing missing from them is the "crayon smell."  Love it!!

Well, thanks for stopping by and we hope you'll come back again!  Like I said, if you would like the cut file, please let me know and I'll send it to you.  I think I'll go color something!  Until another day, God Bless You!!  Donna


  1. Donna, these are both so cute. I'm going to have to try both of them. Would be great for Kindergarten teachers.

  2. These are great! I am going to give it a try. Great work!!!


I appreciate your comments and visits. I hope you will come back soon.
