Tomorrow is Willen's last day of school.
I can't believe that his first year of Kindergarten is nearly over!
Today the class is celebrating with a party, and each child usually brings something special as a little thank you for their teacher. I wanted to it to be something that was inexpensive, but still special.
This is what I came up with.
I had found these bags at Marshalls a few weeks ago for $1.99. I grabbed every single one they had. I then hand lettered his teacher's initials (SH) onto the bag using Martha Stewart's acrylic paint in Wedding Cake. I threw in a copy of Jane Austen's Sense and Sensibility, a yearly summer read of mine, that I had picked up from Chapter's when their classic lit goes on sale 3 for $10.
So the total for a monogrammed book bag and classic novel?
Some pretty ribbon and a thank you note finished it off. I should also mention that it also took about 10 minutes to do.
