Alright mama bears, fess up…who’s counting down the days until school starts??
If you raised your hand, it’s your lucky day! I have teamed up with my friend Rachel Place of Sweet Elsie and we put our crafty and creative juices together and created a fun and simple project for you and your kiddos – a back to school count down!
This exclusive Silhouette design features a crayon box with numbered crayons that can be removed each day until the first day of school. You guys, you can even personalize it with your child’s grade! Make one for each kiddo…get everyone excited and playing along in the count down! 🙂
Before we start with the simple tutorial, let’s talk about Rachel…who is she?! She is a Silhouette Artist whom I met at Silhouette Summit earlier this year. Together, we braved the waves out to our submarine excursion but I’m pretty sure she handled it a lot better than I did! Here are some more fun facts about this graphic design extraordinaire!
Oh Crate & Barrel….me and you both girl! 🙂 I could dream all day about re-decorating my home to look like it was straight out of a C&B catalog! BUT let’s get back to reality and how about we DO something instead?! Here’s how to make your own back to school countdown! 🙂
