Back To School Personalized Binders

Hi, it’s Kendra once again on this beautiful Tuesday here in Sunny South  Carolina!

Now that August has arrived it is Back To School time once again here in the South.  With some of the schools around us already back in session and  my own children start school next Monday I want to take the time to share a project that you can make with your children to make going back to school a little more fun.  It still amazes me how time flies by…I am struggling with the reality that  my oldest daughter, Abby is a Senior this year and will be graduating from High School…it just does not seem possible.  Where has the time gone?

My project today is actually the project I do with my oldest daughter just before school starts every year.  It is taking plain 1 inch binders with the outside pockets and making them personalized and special just for her.

Here are 2 of the folders we made her last year.  (We are still waiting to get her class schedule for this yeasr before we can make them for this year.)  They were created with the Cricut Expression, The Gypsy and the following cartridges linked to the Gypsy; Cuttin’ Up, George and Basic Shapes and Cursive 101.  The neat thing about creating these with your children is that they can be customized to your child’s likes.

Here is a look at the side.  Your child can put these folders in their locker and will be able to clearly read the spine with the subject on it.

Happy Scrappin’
