Hello sweeties and welcome to The Kraft Journal #85 - 'Back To School'! I love to create adorable little projects with a school theme, so today's project was super fun to work on! I went through my treasure baskets of goodies from The Kraft Outlet Shop and set to work creating this sweet miniature black board and cork board ... enjoy peeking!
I began my design with a piece of cardboard backing from a box onto which I adhered pieces of a Chalkstock Post Card and Corkstock Tile. Next I covered four popsicle sticks with Lille Paper Tape and adhered them to the base to create a frame around the blackboard. I created a pretty little banner using Banner Chipboard Pieces and Black Banner Stickers. Next, I stamped A-B-C's onto the fronts of the banner pieces and then strung them at the top of the blackboard using Red Baker's Twine and cute Tiny Colored Wooden Clothespins.
I added a mini report card to the cork board created using a piece of Yellow Library Card onto which I stamped an 'A+', adhered a glittered gold star and tacked it onto the cork board with a Garnet Stick Pin. I added a pretty little ruffle at the bottom of the cork board using Ruler Twill Tape and finished my board off by adding a Metal Hinge Clip.
I added a piece of Natural Twill Tape at the top of my project so it could be hung, and lastly I used Buff Ivory Card Stock to stamp an adorable little girl ready for her first day of school holding a set of books tied on with Natural Hemp Cording. Stamped images are Abigail, So Proud of You, Alphas-Upper and Alphas-Lower from Paper Sweeties.
This project was SO MUCH FUN to create ... I hope you'll hop right over to The Kraft Journal to check out the inspiration from the rest of the teamies and then give our 'Back To School' challenge a try for your chance to win some awesome goodies from The Kraft Outlet Shop!
