Free Printable Back to School 2011 Collection!

I am so excited to offer these Free Back to School Printables to all of you! What a fun way to start school! Give a little gift to your children, your children's friends and classmates and most importantly to those lovely teachers that spend so much valuable time with our little ones. Wrap up your favorite candy bar with our candy bar wrappers and add a ribbon for the perfect sweet gift or after school treat! Need something on the healthier side, add an encouraging read favor tag to an apple!

You could also do the same to cupcakes, muffins, etc.

Our bookmarks are the perfect accessory to those new books for school. Encourage young readers with a special bookmark, simply punch a whole in the top and add your favorite ribbon.

Label those books with the tags too. These work great printed on sticker paper and punched with a craft punch.

The square tags are designed to be trimmed with scissors or to be used with either a 2 inch or 2.25 inch square or scalloped square craft punch (found at most craft supply stores).

For the circle tags they are designed to be punched with the above square punches or you can also use a 2 inch circle or scalloped circle punch.

Another great use for the circle tags is to print them on sticker paper, trim, punch and use as envelope seals.

I designed three note cards with teachers in mind. Print your favorite or give your teacher a combination. Add envelopes, ribbon and a tag to make your gift extra sweet!

I originally created the bookworm note cards, but realized I needed something for the older children to give their teachers too. I love the simplicity of the apple cards.

I love using take out boxes to put yummy treats in! They make a quick way to wrap up homemade goodies or candy. Add a tag and you've got a simple, easy gift!

I would love to see pictures of how you use your printables!

Wishing you all a Wonderful School Year!!!


Back to School {for kids} Back to Blogging {for mama} FREE Printables {for you}

Wow! It has been months since I have blogged. I took a little hiatus from blogging to have more time with my little ones during the summer months. I have enjoyed the precious time spent with my amazing kids, and I wish summer was much longer. I have definitely been teary the last few days just thinking about my youngest starting kindergarten. I sure am going to miss having my little buddy home all day! I am, however, anxious to get back to creating, designing, and sharing party inspiration with you!

Despite being absent from the blog, we have had a busy summer. We threw an impromptu miniature golf party for my little man.

A luau pool party for my sweet girl!

I am excited to share these parties and more as the kids head back to school. I have also kept busy with design work. My favorite work to do is customer requested custom designs. I love hearing their ideas and working together to create their vision. One of my favorite custom designs this summer is this Spa Party Invite {still working with the Sweetest customer to add coordinating items}

My little shop will be on vacation until mid September or so, as I work on adding new products. I am really excited about the new items that will be added to the shop upon it’s reopen! This Halloween collection is new to the shop and will be {On Sale} through September!

As my little ones gear up for school, I thought about the sweet teachers who will be guiding and teaching them throughout the year. I wanted to make sure to send the kids to school on the first day with gifts for their teachers. I designed some fun printable note cards for teachers as well as coordinating party tags etc. I am so excited to offer them FREE to all of you! The printables should be ready for download soon! You won’t want to miss these cute freebies and an easy inexpensive way to make the start of school even more sweet (or as friends have joked, a way to “butter up” the teacher before our little stinkers arrive)

You can look for the downloadable link on my facebook page, as I often update there much sooner than here on the blog! While there make sure to "Like" our page so you don't miss all the fun items and freebies!
