I'm back... I've taken Adam to school and cried buckets by now. I was crying yesterday sitting through the "Meet the Teacher" as she was reading "The Kissing Hand"... I was crying in the car as I called my sister (yes, I was hands-free) saying how scared I am to leave my little, sweet, loving boy in such a big, wide open, full place without me... and last night as he was crying in bed, worrying that no one will like him in his class I had to hold back the tears and be positive. So that's me, positively positive that he'll have an awesome day and I cannot wait to hear about it!
One might call it a "banner" day...
Good lead in? Or too much?
So, once again, when I was at the Dollar Tree where I spent
I decided to hang the sight words with binder clips - hey, why not? Binder clips scream school... or tests, depending on how you rolled through your classes. I rolled that way. The Binder Clip Way.
I also I sewed the 1st Words and some addition/subtraction flash cards together. I used almost the whole box of word cards and probably half the box of addition and subtraction - Adam will be doing complex mathematical equations soon thanks to the remaining cards! It probably took me about 10 minutes to sew this banner and I had so. much. left. over. Seriously. Easy, playful and quick! Yes!
Oh, and the fun 3D Apple rosette guys? Yes, the Dollar Tree... and my Silhouette. Have I told you how much I LOVE my Silhouette Cameo? I love it! And before you ask, yes, I would marry it - if it looked like my husband! Anyways, the red and white rosette was actually in a package of hanging Patriotic Decorations that I never used for the 4th and I thought it was the perfect backdrop for the 3D apple from Silhouette - it actually gives you enough apples to make an entire apple, but since I needed 2 halves, I just used half for one rosette and half for the other!
So there you go - fun, easy and playful banners for above the buffet table - or anywhere, really. Very little effort, time or money goes into these cuties which makes me give them an A+!
Thanks for visiting! We're almost at the end of the week which means that I'll finally get to share the whole, colorful and fun party!
Have a great one!
