You're Going to Soar in 2nd Grade

It seems impossible that students are returning to school around our country.  But, it's that time of year!  My granddaughter will be starting 2nd grade next week.  It's so hard for me to believe she is growing up so fast!  To encourage her on her first day of school, I made a goodie bag for her.  And it goes along with the latest die cut challenge over at Stuck On U Sketches.  The theme this week is "School Is Cool!"  I hope you'll check it out and join in with us!

I took a polka dot gift bag and embellished it as follows:

Scalloped circle:  Elegant Edges Cricut cartridge cut at 6"; I also added a shadow to the cut.
"You're Going To," "In," and "Grade" were all computer generated and punched.
SOAR:  Straight from the Nest Cricut cartridge cut at 2 1/2"
2ND:  Martha Stewart Seasonal Cake Cricut cartridge cut at 2" (the "2"), and 1 1/4" ("ND")
Apple:  Wrap It Up Cricut cartridge cut at 3"
For the toppers to the treat bags, I merely printed them from my computer and added a few stickers I had stashed in a drawer.

And a close-up of the individual goodie bags:

I hope you are inspired.  I appreciate any comments you take the time to leave.  Have a blessed, crafty day!
