Back to School!

Today I have a little bit different project to show you for my La-la Land Crafts inspiration this week, please know this is for my 6 year old niece so you don't think I have gone off my rocker when you see it! She is starting kindergarten this year and our inspiration this week is "Back to School" so I thought I would make her a personalized backpack tag. My sister said her favorite colors are hot pink, green and purple so that was what I did.

I have colored Sweetheart Marci up with the same hair colors as my niece McKennah then I fussy cut her out and put her on some pretty dp which I backed with some white cardstock so I could put her name on the back. You could of course add your phone number, address or whatever you felt was appropriate. Next, I used a Scotch self laminating sheet to make it sturdy and protected and trimmed it smaller and rounded the corners then I glued on all the little plastic beads and an acrylic flower. I think the beads are a little over the top myself but McKennah will love them. Finally I added a chain at the top so it is easy to put on her backpack and we are ready to go! No one is gonna mistake her Dora the Explorer bag for theirs now!
