As some of you may know, I started making backpack notes for my daughter when the school year started back in September. She doesn't take a cold lunch, which is why they are backpack notes instead of lunch box notes.
The goal was to try and make one for her every school day. Although I started out strong, I did end up missing a few days throughout the school year and started to burn out at the very end. I did rally again for the last week of school; and for the very last one, I made the biggest one of all - over 11". I used the Everyday Paper Doll cartridge and cut out a graduation girl. . .for my daughter graduating from First Grade. I cut the hair from the cartridge but then trimmed it by hand to look more like my daughter's hair. On the back of the cut out, I included a picture of her bedroom door where she has taped up many of the backpack notes that I have made for her throughout the year and told her how very proud I am of her and all that she has accomplished.
Here's a picture of her bedroom door with her collection of backpack notes. I always ask her if the one I gave her that day is her favorite and she replies. . .No mama, they're ALL my favorites!
