Back 2 School Starters

It is that time of year..BACK TO SCHOOL. I know many people do not like this time of year, but I love it. I look forward to getting back to my classroom and getting the year started. I have several crafting projects that I am looking to get done for my classroom and the hallways before the year starts, BUT..my sister had a special request and her students start much sooner than mine.

She makes these wonderful locker tags each year for her class (last year she hand made the Little Miss and Mr. Characters) and this year she has asked for some large paper dolls...I was happy to get things started for her with my handy dandy Cricut Expression. Here are my starting points. I have a lot more work to do, but wanted to share as I have been away for awhile. I know it is a simple thing but I love Everyday Paper dolls and what fun things you can do with it. Look for more soon as well  as my own back to school projects.


  1. I cannot wait to see what you do with these. I love the paperdoll carts too. They can be just about anything!!!!!

    L.B., Yep I am with you! Love the whole planning my classroom/school start. It is hard to believe it is August 2nd. Yikes! Time to start planning.

  2. Awe, I miss back to school days. Both of my boys are grown now so I don't get to do the back to school shopping anymore. I always enjoyed it.
    Your paper dolls are really cute. I love those cartridges too.

  3. You are a wonderful sister! These little people are so cute! I know the school children are going to love them!


Inspiration & Smiles from you are so welcomed.
