Back to School: Rolodex Mini-Album

Hello Peeps!

Today I am sharing my last back to school project. My last two projects were both gifts that would be great for a teacher at any point in the year. Today I have a mini-album for parents to share pictures of their student through the years.

I started with a Rolodex. I have heard these can be found regularly at thrift stores but after months of searching, I finally broke down and bought one at an office supply store.

Supply List:
Authentique "Curiosity" - Studious, Learning, and Desire papers
Authentique "Curiosity" - Details and Elements stickers
Coordinating blue and yellow cardstock
Tab punch

I created one tab for each grade level. Since my inspiration for this project has just started preschool, I made blank tabs so that his mom can add pictures as he goes through school. I also left the backs blank so that she can add her own journaling.

Thanks for checking out my projects this week. As always you can see them in person at Pages From the Heart.

Back to School: Altered Paint Can for the Teacher

Welcome back Peeps!

It's back-to-school week here on the Pages blog and I am back with another project. This time it is an altered paint can that would make a great gift holder for your favorite teacher.

Supply List:
Authentique "Curiosity" - Interested, Studious, and Determined papers
Authentique "Curiosity" - Details stickers
Blue and white cardstock
Coordinating ribbon

You can find these cute plastic buckets at Pages in different sizes. The key to adhering paper to the bucket is using a strong, clear glue like Scrappy Glue.

Thanks for reading! I'll be back tomorrow with one more school project. This time it's a gift for parents!

Back to School: Post-It Holder

Hi Peeps! Welcome school! This week I will be sharing some back to school inspired projects using Authentique's new "Curiosity" collection.

The first project I have to share is a Post-It holder. I made this using a plastic sign holder that I found at an office supply store. I placed paper inside the holder and then attached the embellishments on the outside. I adhered the Post-Its using glue dots.

Supply List:
Authentique "Curiosity" - Studious and Learning paper, Details and Elements stickers
Safety pin
White tulle

I'll be back tomorrow with another gift for your favorite teacher!

"What's Up" from Basic Grey

Hi....this is Debbie.  I made a card and gift bag for my friend Tina and then got carried away with the scraps! I made six cards and a gift bag out of four sheets of the "What's Up" collection by Basic Grey. The banners with the pennants, letters and cute little birds are easily hand-cut to become an embellishment. Or even easier, just mat and layer! "What's Up" is in stock at Pages From the Heart and several of these cards are on display at the store.
