Maker Moments: It’s Back…

It’s hard to believe that the summer, no let me restate that, that vacation is nearly over! Time to start planning and preparing for a new school year. We embellished a few pre-purchased items to make them hip and trendy for school! Perhaps having a few of your child’s friends over for a creative party might really be fun. Thought a magnetic white board and a notebook would do the trick.

We used just three dies to create these easy projects.

S1-007 Die-D-Lites Emojis
S1-014 Die-D-Lites Ornate Arrows
S2-141 Die-D-Lites Sentiments 5
PZ-100 Prizm™ Die Cutting & Embossing Machine

You will need round magnets, white erase magnetic board, white and colored card stock, adhesive and a composition notebook.

I think the projects are self-explanatory. We purchased the white erase, magnetic locker notepad at the store along with some round magnets. No surprise that our emojis fit right on top of the magnets!

The notebook was covered with white card stock. We then die-cut the emojis, arrows and sentiment from black and yellow paper and adhered them onto the notebook. Ah, we could play all day with these cute little faces. How about you? What’s your plan for back to school?
