More Back-to-School Goodies

I shared some of my favorite Back-to-School finds over the weekend but new ones keep popping up everywhere so I wanted to post a few more before your little ones hop on the bus.

Brittany at One Charming Party has a bunch of great DIY projects that would make great teacher's gifts, like a pencil-topped caramel apple:

And a fun ABC flower bouquet.

Dolce Drive created these downloadable book labels:

And a terrific teacher card:

And I love this fabulous back-to-school party pack from Brandi from Tweedle Dee Designs!  It includes punchable circles (perfect for tags or cupcake toppers), a banner, lunch box notes and more, and you can download it all for free.

Bird Crafts has a set of free party printables too, and I adore the gingham.

And last but not least, you can make some adorable bag tags with these templates from Anders Ruff.  There's a free downloadable set for girls.

And for boys.

Can you stand all of the back-to-school cuteness?  Me either.

Sara commented on my round up of goodies over the weekend saying she had to find a way to save them for when her kids were ready for school so I wanted to recommend a free website I love called Springpad, which is basically like an online scrapbook.  Once you sign up, you download the Spring It! button onto your computer's toolbar and anytime there's a blog post, a product, a recipe or what-have-you that you want to save online, you click the button.  It then asks you if you want to tag the item (I have categories like parties, freebies, dessert tables, gift ideas, crafts, back-to-school, etc.) and if you want to save any media (I tend to include pictures) and when you're done, it saves the bookmark into your Springpad.  When you want to looks something up, you can sort by keyword (I clicked back-to-school for this post) and it pulled up all of the ideas I'd saved in that category.  I don't know what I'd do without this application - it's the only thing that keeps all of the things I find organized and accessible.

Hope you like these fun finds and if you've seen any I missed - or if you try Springpad - let me know!  And if you have a second, please click this banner and then the "Cast your vote now...." graphic to vote for AFOMFT on Top Baby Blogs.  Danka!

  4. Those are cute. I don't remember giving my teacher's back to school gifts but I think my daughter will when she goes to school in a few years. I saw u on Top Baby Blogs. Please visit my blog when you get a chance I own a kids boutique that allows parents to swap in the kids clothes as they outgrow them.


Thanks for the love!
