Lunch Box Notes

It is time for a new theme week over at White Rose Crafts.  With school being more or less a month away, WRC is getting ready to go back to school, because lets be honest “School’s Cool“.

Schools CoolToday I am popping in to share some quick and simple Lunch Box Notes for my students today.

Instead of cutting scoring cards to fit my needs, I instead invested in a pack of 48 precut, double sided school theme cards from Kaisercraft.  The School Days 3×4 cards are perfect for my needs.
