What if your children said that instead of "I don't wanna get upppp". Wouldn't that be a lot better for the start of your morning? Well, Jeannie has created something to make her children's folders happy and who knows maybe something like this could work for you :)
From the artistic mommy herself...Jeannie...
Being the mom to 7 kids, when BACK TO SCHOOL comes around and the kids start bringing their SCHOOL SUPPLY lists home, it can be a little overwhelming. I am all for using last years stuff whenever I can talk the kiddos into it.
My 1st grader came home from his first day of school and said he needed "3 BINDERS." I told him, 1st graders don't need binders but I could not talk him out of it. The only way I was able to pacify him, because I would not buy him 3 binders, was to make these One-of-a-Kind folders for him.
These were made from ordinary pocket folders. I used my Cricut Expression and my Cricut CREATE A CRITTER cartridge for the critters. I embellished them with some Jelly Roll pens, some paper polka dots and some dots from my FAVORITE pens in the world, my DOTTA-RIFFIC pens. To adhere them permanently, I used my XYRON 9" Creative Station with the Permanent adhesive. That adhesive was a must to make this project usable for a 6 year old. I hope you like these, my 6 year old absolutely loved them!!
