Hi there! Renee here today with a few Happy First Day of School gifts I made using the Woodland Forest collection. The first day of school is always filled with both excited and nervous feelings. These gifts are perfect for a teacher or a student who can use a bit of happy. You can fill it with a favorite treat or snack. Whatever the gift inside may be, they will appreciate it and know you care and wish them well.
I used my 1-2-3 Punch Board and decided to make a 3 ¼” x 3 ¼” x 3 ¼” box:
- I trimmed the Woodland Critters, Woodland Forest, and Apple Cider pattern papers to 10″ x 10″.
- I followed the instructions on where to punch and score the papers.
- I used the bone folder to fold all the scored lines.
- No adhesive needed. I connected both sets of attachment slits on the box.
- Boxes are ready for the Happy First Day of School gifts! Quick and Easy!
To embellish the boxes, I created simple and super cute tags:
- I gathered Wood Veneer Shapes with adorable woodland critters, leaf Die-Cuts, sentiment squares, and pattern papers trimmed to 3″ x 5″ and ½” strips. I ran the tags through the printer to add the “Happy First Day of School” sentiment.
- I adhered the ½” pattern paper strips along the left edge of the tags. I cut-up the top corners of the tags and used a standard hole punch to add holes to them.
- I added the adorable embellishments!
No untying here. I simply added red ribbons to decorate the tags and added a bit of adhesive to attach the tags to the boxes so that the person receiving the Happy First Day of School gift can just lift the tag and open the box.
Ready for school! Hope everyone has a wonderful school year!
