Old School: Open House Bunting

This year I am going with apples, pencils, school buses, and chalkboard decor. After 27 years of teaching and many different themes, I call this one "Old School."  I love bunting and these clipart freebies from Creative Clips were perfect for back-to-school!  I printed and laminated these and will use dry erase markers to write student names on them. I am going to connect them with cute green ribbon and hang them in the hallway for open house.  Click here to download this file.  There are blank flags for adding your own grade level.  It's going to be a great year...I'm just saying!

Target Dollar Bin + Pinterest + Freebie = Cute Goodie Bags!

So I found myself back at Target today. I wasn't going to stop at the dollar bins, but they are located at the front of the store and I just couldn't look away. I found goodie bags that look like notebook paper and snatched them up right away.  Earlier, I found a back-to-school freebie on Pinterest and knew that the kraft tags would be perfect for the cute button clip art included in this download.  As soon as I got home, I started printing and cutting and glueing and this is what happened!

 I am going to use these tags with the "notebook paper" goodie bags to hold these cute apple pretzels that I also discovered on Pinterest.

These will be a fun treat at open house...
