Ready For Kindergarten


I was going to wait a few weeks before posting this project, but I was so excited about how it turned out, I just had to share! My nephew, Ryan, will be going into kindergarten this year, so I wanted to make him something just for him for his first day of school. I found this clear paint can at our LSS. I decorated the bottom half with Stampin' Up's new Primary Colors SSK. I love it so much that I've broke into my second kit already!! I only did the bottom half so you were able to see what's inside. I tied lots of ribbon around the handle and decorated the lids as well, with the new ABC lower alphabet and ABC images. The inside is filled with goodies that he'll need for school like an eraser, glue stick, scissors, crayons, jumbo paperclip, and mini composition notebook. I don't know how much he'll appriciate it, but I know his mommy will love it too!

What an excellent idea. And it turned out so well. I love it. And I imagine your nephew will too. He can keep his "little kid goodies" in there. Seems like they always have some odd or end they find special.
