My daughter just went into the 1st grade and I want to make something for each of the students in her class I want something quick but cute that won't get torn up easily any ideas? I thought about making little books.

I made these cut little book corners for each of my kids classes. I cut them on my gypsy using 8 1/2 by 11 paper.

If you have a gypsy I can send you the file.

I punched the eyes with a circle punch and the teeth I cut on the gypsy.

I would find out what the teaches theme is and do a bookmark. Then get it laminated so it will last longer.



I made bookmarks for my neighbors daughter who got her first teaching job and she is teaching 1st grade and her theme is out doors things so I used the AK bookmarks and made little frogs then made a can to set them in and made a lily pad and a lily flower to set the can in/on. It turned out really cute.

I have also made bookmarks using AK for my students in the past. This year I made each student a little bag using Plantain schoolbook and I filled it with little treats. Are you looking for something to give out the first day of school or holidays? I think the book idea would be neat, I personally have not made books for my students as I do not have the patience for that.

These were the bags I made

Nice! Did you emboss the paper yourself, or did it come that way? I love that pattern! Love

I absolutely love these! I do not have a gypsy...any advice on how to get these in the craft room? Thank you in advance!

I used my cuttlebug to emboss them. I wanted the bags to be exciting for the kids and not just a paper bag.BigGrin
