Today officially marked the first day of summer, but Lil' E is still in school. He actually has one more day. Yep tomorrow, my little kindergartner will be a big 1st grader. We wanted to make a little end of the year gift fo the the kids in his class and when I came across this Kool Aid idea I rushed to the store to get my supplies.
Cricut (I didn't have to rush to the store for this. Many of you know I love my cricut)
Tags, Bags, Boxes, and More Cartridge (I wish I had this. It would have made it so much easier. Instead I had to search the web for an svg to use with my SCAL. I found one, but I had to add the window myself.)
Step 1: Cut a pocket tag using your cricut. You can only get two tags per 12x12 sheet.
If you are using the tags, bags, boxes and more cartridge, cut the tag 1 out with a 9" window. If you have the SCAL program you can use the file I created HERE.
Step 2: Assemble your pocket tag.
Step 3: Insert your Kool-Aid into the created tag.
Step 4: Use glue or glue dots to close tag and insert your straw.
Step 5: I printed the Have a Kool Summer out on the computer. You could write it out by hand.
Step 6: Punch the Have a Kool Summer out. I used a 1 1/4 inch circle.
Step 7: Back your Kool Summer circles with colorful paper.
How cute are these? Lil' E can't wait to take them to school tomorrow.
Thanks to Fakin' It for the original idea.
