Lunchbox Notes with Laughing Lola for Back to School Sparkle

Hi everyone!  Like I said on Monday, my kiddos started back to school last week.  A new school year calls for new lunchbox love, so I made some cute little cards with my Laughing Lola Paper Packet to put in their lunches.

I am linking these cutie pie lunchbox notes up with My Creative Time's newest challenge to make something for back-to-school time!  :)

These 3x3 cards didn't take long at all to put together, but the payoff was huge!  My daughter loved this one on the right that I sent in her lunch.  I was afraid she was too old for this, but I think the pattern paper and bling combined to make her day a little less stressed with some love from home. 

Unfortunately there was one snag...she asked me what the chocolate chip meant, lol!  I had to tell her it was a Hershey's Kiss!  Can you tell which one my kids see more of at home, lol?

I used one of my all time favorite stamp and die sets from MCT for the kiss and the little tag.  I had just discovered not too long ago that the wafer dies will actually cut through the glitter paper like butter with my Big Shot!  SOOOO easy.  I used the perfect stamp for the sentiment from a new Close to My Heart My Acrylix stamp set called School Years.  In a moment of pure inspiration, I also spied the stamp with the glasses...and realized they fit the Kiss perfectly!  :)

Here is the inside of the card...

I used a retired Classmate Alphabet for this sentiment, but you can use practically any that is the right size!  I recommend this CTMH Pennant Alphabet which has a simple font very similar to the one I used.

Why not send some sparkle in YOUR child's lunchbox tomorrow?  You never know when a loving word from home will hit the spot! ;)

I will share my version of this lunchbox note with the Babycakes Paper Packet later this week, so be sure to sign up for email updates! Thanks for stopping by!  :)
