I finished getting all of Sarah and Emily's school supplies, minus that one elusive composition book, ready for them today. All of their pens, pencils, calculators, folders, notebooks, papers, book covers, and binders are ready to go. And speaking of binders, I decided to decorate them with scrapbook papers to make them personalized for the girls.
This first binder is for Sarah's Honors Algebra class. (I edited out anything that could have been used to identify her.) Sarah's favorite color is purple, so she just loves how I decorated it for her.
The next binder is also Sarah's and is for her U.S. History class. The only thing I really did for this one is print the titles and such on the pink scrapbook paper to insert into the designated spots.
And last, but not least, is Emily's big three inch binder for all of her basic classes (non-electives). This binder is the reason that I was inspired to do all of this personalization. Why? Because it cost me more than $20 (after tax) to purchase, and for that price, plain white just wasn't going to cut it.
Both girls are thrilled with my work and can't wait to take their stuff to school to show it all off to their friends.
