One look at this picture of my Grandson's 1st day of school, I knew I had to make him something special!! I wish I had thought of the concept behind this but credit is due to a Pinterest crafter. I personally think the idea is fabulous and also quick to do.
First, "The Picture."
Now the idea!! I used the CD Folder pattern
Diecuts used were the Bosskut Apple and the Clip Board. I used heavyweight cardstock and made my folder 3 inches by 3 inches. I also cut a rectangle 4 inches long by 2.10 inches wide for my tab insert.
I printed a postcard size of my photo and placed it on the insert tab. The apple is for his teacher to write a sweet message (we hope) about Cash at the end of the school year!
You could add his school picture on the back of the insert tab or inside folder. I would add a journal page for you as his Mom or Grandmother with significant occurrences. Awards, sports or first girlfriend/crush etc.
You make one of these for each school year and present to your child when he graduates!!!! What a wonderful and meaningful idea!!
I cut a 2.75 inch square for my cover and then used the Bosskut Gazelle pen feature to write the titles. I added the ribbon, chalked my paper and then added glitter to the name title. This is an easy level project and completed within 30- 45 minutes. When I finish the other 11 folders, I will put into a box and give to my daughter to keep up with the pictures and information needed. Remember, take those
1st day pictures of your child !
