Monday Made-It

Happy Day!  Today I'm sharing a super cute idea that I found on the last Monday Made It!  It comes from Aimee at Primarily Speaking.

My made it today is Back to School Magic Confetti!!

There is a cute little poem that goes with this that talks about having jitters the night before school starts.  Here is a link to the free poem at TpT.  I simply made the confetti from scrapbook paper scraps.  I chose all colors and papers with polka dots.  Then I bought some dot confetti at Party City to add to each bag.  The little bags that I used are from Michaels.  They come with the cute silver twist tie.  There are a bunch of bags for very cheap!  I used the bags for an end of year gift last year and for these bags.  I still have more left!!!  All I had to buy was the confetti which was 4.99!  With all the money that I spend on school that's a great price for a cute gift.
Please be sure to check out all the other Monday Made Its by clinking the link above.  I have gotten SO MANY great ideas from others at this link:)  Thanks so much to Tara from Fourth Grade Frolics.

I love those! I have seen them and wanted to make them but we don't get our class lists in time to give them out before school starts. I contemplated modifying it to give it to them on the first day but ran out of time... maybe next year
