Paper Canteen Random Postings: Something Special For My Sweet Girl

Yesterday was a big day in our house!!  My eldest went off to First Grade!!  (proud beaming Mom!!)  It was quintessentially THE best day for the first day of school here in MA.  It was a crisp and clear day.  Cool enough to wear a denim jacket with her first day of school dress but warm enough to hit the pool for one of the last times after school.

Her wonderful teacher asked that we have our children come to school with name tags complete with name, bus number and room number.  Well, I clearly couldn't send her with a standard "Hello My Name Is" style tag.  So in lieu of the aforementioned tag here is what I came up with!
I started with a circle of chipboard measuring 3.25".  I used my daughter's favorite colors - pink and purple to embellish.  I used my circle nesties to cut my layers.  I used the dotted text lines from the following MFT set to line up my Lawn Fawn - Harold's ABC Text!
The text lines are very faint as they are inked in a very light pink.  I went completely around the edge of the tag with 3-D heart stickers in all sizes and added three loops of purple, spider-web ribbon attached to the back.
I used denim, cut with my nesties, to attach the ribbon (sandwiched and glued in between the chipboard and denim), as well as my jumbo safety pin.  I used fabric glue to hold it all together.  
My daughter was beaming when I gave it to her and wore it proudly on her first day!  So far we're off to a beautiful start to the school year!
