UMT-Lunch Notes

Happy Thursday Everyone!Welcome to this week's Using My Tools Thursday. Today's project is not only cute, fun but also something your kids will love. Today's tools are a whole lotta kid stamps. My kids are 17, 15 and 13 so these stamps haven't seen the light of day for ages!

Even though my kids are teens, I couldn't help but make these anyway. I plan to leave them on their pillow rather than in their lunch bag since I think they would be mortified if their friends at the Middle and High schools found them! In any case, my kids will always be my babies so I wanted to give this technique a try, even if, I do get a bunch of eye rolling from my "too grown up" kids. ;-)

I found a tutorial on how to make these from Jennifer McGuire. I will link it here. She uses a die set but I just used cartridges from my Cricut. I couldn't see spending $25.00 for the die set to make these lunch notes when I had cut files already.  I grabbed various stamps from different sets and just went crazy! I made 24 notes. 

Maybe I'll give you an update on how it went over with my least secretly, I think they'll be grateful mom took the extra time to leave encouraging and loving notes for them. I wish I paper crafted when they were little because I definitely would have put these to good use in elementary school!

Well, I hope you have a fabulous weekend and find time to make something beautiful!

Super cute lunch box notes. I used to put notes in hubby's lunchbox when we were first married (55 years ago) what a fab. idea to connect with your children.
