Hi everyone. Heather Leopard is here and with the first day of school just 3 weeks away, I’m getting a jump start on school lunch prep. No, I’m not prepping the actual meals because that would be just gross; I’m talking about school lunch notes. I don’t care how old your kids are, including a little note in their lunch kit will make their day!
I don’t care how old your kids are, including a little note in their lunch kit will make their day! Shoot, maybe I’ll make my own lunch notes. Just kidding, kind of.
I knew that I was going to use the 2″ x 3″ cards so I downloaded a Silhouette file and sized it so that the notes would perfectly fit in them. I was able to cut multiple of these at a time which sped up the process. You could also make these without a machine pretty easily. Just apply a bit of adhesive to the edges, fold over and you’ve got your pocket.
There’s also this little flap that you can fold down. You can tuck these in or out depending on your mood. I folded most of mine out like you see pictured above and look how the flowers align so well.
Next, add a simply embellishment to the front of the card. You could also add a sentiment but then again, the sentiment is in the lunch note, right?
The cards I chose were from the 6″ x 6″ paper pad, which was great because the backs were white. That’s perfect for adding a personal note to each of them. I also added a small puffy sticker or two to each note. It just needed a little pop of something.
Once the personal note is written, just insert the card in the pocket and stash them away so you have them ready to go when you pack their lunches. I think I’ll make or alter a cute little box to store these in…
So there you have it. School Lunch Notes ready to go. Super fun and super easy!
