Beginning of School Blog Hop-- CTMH Teacher Survival Kit

Thanks for joining us for the Beginning of School Blog Hop! 

You should have arrived from Jessica's Blog  The hop begins on Kathryn's blog if you'd like to start at the top.

 We have 16 fabulous designers all ready to show you a "school" creation! This is the second of a two-day hop so be prepared for some more fun!

For the first time in my 10 years of teaching, we were greeted at this week's first staff meeting with a Teacher Survival kit!  This gave me great inspiration for a teacher gift for my son's teacher!

For this gift, I created a little bag out of cardstock, added some fun new Close To My Heart products to it.  It was really simple and easy to do :)
*Typeset Level 2 papers--- perfect for any school project!
*Cricut Art Philosophy-- I cut a 6" flower and scrunched the paper, then rolled it up.
*Bling Assortment-- perfect for adding a little bling to any project!
*Brads Metal Assortment-- a brad to secure the handle to the bag.

Shown with all the goodies I put inside :)

OK- Time to HOP on over to Tina's blog for School time FuN!!!!

This is adorable and believe me the teacher will just love this a few years back when I was a pre-k teacher I got one of these similar to this and I just loved it.
I only wish my kids were smaller I could make it for their teacher but, now they are in High School and ..... it's just not cool

What a fantastic idea! I should make one of these for my sister, she is a teacher- and from the stories she has told, could definitly use a survival kit. haha. Beautiful work.
