Back to school treats

Hello crafty friends,  I have a couple of Back to School projects to share. I used to rack my brain to find ways to make learning fun for my son. He struggled with school until about 3rd grade. I remember paying him a nickel to read me a bedtime story. Yes I resorted to bribery, lol. But it worked!! I guess money really does talk :)  so onto my post ....  I made these for Quick Quotes. They have a new school collection with bright colors and some really great patterns.
These fun pencil toppers would make homework fun for anyone!

This pencil box (also made with Quick Quotes) is large enough to hold several real pencils. A perfect gift for a teacher, especially with this charm I added. It can be slipped on a necklace to be worn or added to a charm bracelet.

Quick Quotes Supplies:
Pattern Perfect

Other Supplies:
Silver metallic cardstock
Scotch quick dry adhesive
Epiphany Crafts Round 25 punch, epoxy rounds, and metal charms
Maya Road ruler
Silhouette die cuts

I made these for Imaginisce this past week too...

This apple treat box would look great on any teachers desk and can be filled with treats. I used my i-Top to create this charm using a large magnet daddy and large charm. This could be slipped on a chain later to be worm as a necklace or attached to a charm bracelet.

Kids need to be praised for a job well done. A simple card lets them know how proud you are. Since my kids are in college, the library pocket allows me to stow some cash or a gift card.
