School Projects with Kaisercraft’s “Class of ’87”

Hi Everyone
We have had a crazy week here in Marlborough – we are in the throes of grape harvest and my eldest son started his school visits… You may remember I posted this little organizer I made for his new desk at home using the Kaisercraft Class of ’87 range – well I have a few more projects to share using the same collection..
Alphabet Flash Cards
For these I have simply cut out the individual letters from the “Show and Tell”  paper and laminated each one in an individual pocket, punched a hole and used a book-ring to bind together
The awesome thing about this book is that you can use it for letter teaching AND letter writing as the reverse of each letter has plain lines where you can practice writing with a whiteboard pen!!
Crayon Box
This was just a fun box I put together to hold some crayons I made (you can see tutorial on my blog showing just how easy they are to make here)
Here are a couple of close-ups
Pen Holder
For this project I simply painted the edge of a blank box and covered the side in some of the paper from the 6×6 Paper Pad.
To decorate I have used some of the chipboard pieces, die cuts and stickers.
Money Box
This was a matter of buying a money box from the $2 shop and wrapping some paper around it!!
Here is a picture of all the bits and pieces together!
I still have one project I want to complete using this range – which hopefully will show off the more “retro/vintage”side of the collection.  There are a couple of papers and embellishments which have a real “Enid Blyton” feel to them!
Please post a comment if you have any questions..
Lowri 🙂
