Back to School Survival Kit

I made these back to school survival kits for my young women this week. They really loved them, I found the idea online, but I adjusted it to fit the needs of the young women in our ward. (It was for young children and teachers originally)

The reason I am posting it was because I thought maybe some of you out there might want to do something similar for the kids in your life, to get them pumped about school and to get them to feel your support.

Label: I used the backpack from Doodlecharms cartridge, and the opposite lettering from Opposites Attract. I found the ruler ribbon at Roberts Craft.

Those do look really great. If I would have had you in YWM, then I might have gone more often. Well, maybe not...but I would have liked to. :)
