Decorate to Celebrate #58 - Back to School

For my challenge and giveaway at Do More With Less, click HERE
For the Prima Doll Blog Hop Week 3, click HERE


Happy Wednesday!! I hope you are having a fabulous week so far. It's time for a new challenge at Decorate to Celebrate. For Challenge #58, we are asking you to create any project to be used as a party decoration (or party supply) for a Back to School Party or Celebration. Let's celebrate everything wonderful about teachers, apples, education and more with your table decorations, party banners, pennants, yard signs, cupcakes, party favors and more :)


For my Back to School Party, I created backpack treat bags. I found the instructions for this adorable backpack at Splitcoaststampers, HERE.


This was so fun and easy to make. All of the papers are from my stash. I can't remember who makes the circle paper - My Mind's Eye maybe??


I am entering this in the following challenges:
  1. Craftin' Desert Diva's #13 - Anything Goes
  2. DL.Art - Thankful Thursday - August Anything Goes
  3. Sunday Funday - August Linky Party
  4. Just B Creative Crazy - Just Because Linky Party
  5. Fun-Day Friday #13 - Anything Goes
  6. 2 Creative Chicks - Anything Goes for Kids
Now it's your turn!! Head on over to Decorate to Celebrate to see the amazing projects my talented design team sisters have created for today's challenge. Then link up your Back to School project. Also, I would love it if you would enter my challenge at Do More With Less...the challenge is to make a shaped card with a Spellbinders die or any die cut. I can't wait to see what you create :)

Treat bags are always fun, but a backpack is especially different and cute :) I just love how the circles in your paper really set off the buttons.

Best crafty wishes!

My sweetest friend, I loved this just from the thumbnail image... but then loved it even more up close! Backpacks are always adorable, but as a treat favor? That just makes it off the charts precious! :o) The design is so sweet and I love the papers you used. The button closures are perfect. Another marvelous project from your crafty heart! Have I told you lately how much I adore your work? :o) I hope you're having a twinkly night, my dear Lisa! :o)
