And Now on to my project!!  Todays project is continuing with the simple theme........as a working mom I love to do those little touches that make my little boy feel like he is super special but I don't always have a lot of time so I am always looking for new ways to add special touches without spending a lot of time :)  These lunch sacks are perfect for that. 

When you send your child to school why not personalize a lunch sack instead of sending a lunch box?  You can send them with a different one everyday.......and don't forget the special notes inside :)

For these I just used My Axrylix from close to my heart and stamped the desired stamp pattern on my sack in the desired ink color :)  And if you have a little extra time you could take this a step further by embossing or using some sparkle or bling it up a little for the girls :)

Now on for my mystery blog candy :)  Same as yesterday........become a follower of here and my facebook and then post here how you would have embellished this project and post on facebook that you are READY TO GO BACK TO SCHOOL!  WAHOO!

Have Fun and Make it a Scrappy Happy Day!

  3. Kids will love this. Helps them pick out their sack. You could stamp their name too if you had letter stamps. Great idea! TFS

  4. Super cute ideal, but my hubby would kill me if I spruced up his lunch sack. He is the only one that still goes to school since he teaches the electrical trade to native kids. Mind you, I could put a picture of a pinup girl on it!!! Now that just might be a good ideal. TFS!

  5. Great idea TFS!!
