With kids, it seems everything marks a milestone. So, why would going back-to-school be anything but? This fall, we sent two back to school–one to her Pre-K class at a familiar faith-based educational institute and the other at a “new-to-us” elementary school: welcome to 1st grade.
And if you are anything like the other 200 million-billion parents out there sending their kids back to school this fall, chances are you’ve got yourself a fair number of photos marking the event. Why not turn them into a photo collage and send cards to close family and friends?
It’s fun, it’s easy and it’s relatively cheap. I printed 12 photo collages from Walgreens for about $5.00. I added a blurb on the back that I created in Word, printed out, and affixed to the photo–names of teachers and schools, fall activities, etc. I even added some extra card stock around the photo itself, and by doing so, it increased the size from a 4×6 to a 5×7, which fit better into the 5×7 envelopes I had on hand. We had some school-themed stickers lying about from previous projects, so I popped a couple on each and–viola–done!
What will you do to mark the new school year? Happy weekend and happy crafting!
