Jaded Blossom Guest Designer - August Monthly Challenge

I have been waiting for months for this and it is finally here!!!
I am guest designing for the month of August for

Yippee!!! I am so excited!

It is time for the August Monthly Challenge.
Theme: Back to School

Here is my project:

I used the Jaded Blossom stamp set Superstar  and the 1x8" Clear Bags.

I truly believe that a child who knows how to read and to write has the potential to reach for whatever they want. I am going to send this project to school with my youngest on the first day for the teacher. I also have pencils for all the classmates.

I started with a tin can that I picked up at the dollar section of Target. I pieced together this super cute file from Treasure Box Designs called Teeny Treasures School. I stamped it with the "Reach for the Stars" sentiment.

I then added a pencil to (12) 1x8" clear bags. I cut 12 stars from the Treasure Box Designs Teeny Treasures Unicorn set and stamped just the word "Star!" from the "You're a Star" sentiment and attached them to the top. I arranged them in the bucket using kraft Paper Crinkles from Michaels to keep them in place. (Add the pencils first and then fill in with the crinkle paper. It will make the process so much easier!)

Thank you for stopping in today to get the details on my Back to School proect! I hope you will join me and all of the Jaded Blossom DT tomorrow for Day 1 of Sneaks for the August release.

What a lovely idea, that you put into a picture. Reach for the stars is surely a super sentiment and using a pencil and paper is great. Thank you so much for taking time to post your very creative art with us this week at Word Art Wednesday, on our 194th challenge.
Blessings and Hugs, Carole
