Back to school (already?)

I can't believe the kids are back in school already and summer is over! Well, summer's not really over, but summer vacation is! My kiddos started school last week, and they are already getting settled into the new routine. Luckily for me, they actually like school, so it's not too much of a struggle.

In honor of Back to School time, I've got a little school-themed project to share.

I started with a plain hinged wooden box. I painted the whole thing with black paint, then covered it with patterned papers and arranged a bunch of stickers on the lid. This School Supply Box would be perfect for storing supplies at school or at home, or it would make a great gift for that special teacher in your life...fill it with traditional classroom supplies, or get creative and make it more of a "teacher's survival kit" filled with aspirin, hand sanitizer, and chocolate! Here's a view of the inside of the School Supply Box:

All the papers and stickers are from the Making the Grade collection by Reminisce. By the way, Reminisce recently released a 2010 version of the Making the Grade collection:

You can get a closer look at all the products in the Making the Grade 2010 collection here. And you can see some projects created by the Reminisce Design Team with these products on the Reminisce blog here.

Good luck with all your school projects...paper crafting and otherwise!
