Being a teacher, one of my favorite things is new
Who can resist the smell of a new box of crayons, right?
When I saw the My Favorite Things Challenge at one of my new favorite blog stops,
The Kraft Journal
I knew I had to create one of these gift totes using the
Simple Stories ele.ment.ary Kit.
First, I have to give a shout-out to my scrap soul sister Lacey Igo for the inspiration and permission to scraplift her amazing project using the
Simple Stories 100 Days of Summer Kit.
Please check out her project HERE.
I used the Simple Stories school-themed kit and some new goodies from The Kraft Outlet to make some welcome back to school gifts for my teacher friends.

Simple Stories Ele.ment.ary Kit (paper, stickers, journaling jots)
mini alphas from SS 100 Days of Summer sticker sheet
ribbons from Retreat goodie bag
buttons: My Mind's Eye Lost & Found "Moments"
other: 6 pack beverage holder
Now all these patterns and colors coordinate so well with my goodies from
The Kraft Outlet
supplies: Kraft cardstock to cover tote and background for bookmark
Lunch Bag Kraft CD Sleeve (to hold tag and lunch gift card)
metal rimmed tag
Kraft Baker's Twine

You can find it right HERE along with a link to The Kraft Outlet.
I really had so much fun making these gift totes for my teacher friends.
It is always nice to have a little welcome back surprise on your desk the first day of school.
You could make them for your favorite teacher or students returning to school.
thanks for visiting today!
