Hello crafty friends! It’s that time of year again, where we send the kids back to school! We covet their school supplies, we dance through the empty house and, of course, we miss them like crazy. My oldest son is going into the first grade this year, which is thrilling, because now I can officially put notes in his lunch every day and I know he can read them! I decided to create a lunch note station that will live in the pantry and help me maintain my lunch note habit throughout the school year.
Next, I prepped a few cookies as the first week of school is always a bit hectic around here. I wrote out a few notes and folded them into cookies, following the technique below.
1. Fold your circle in half and make a small crease in the middle of the fold.
2. Unfold your cookie and fold it in half again, so that the crease you made is now perpendicular to the new fold. Do not crease the new fold.
3. Push the center/crease of the cookie inward as you pull the top and bottom of the cookie in the opposite direction. Take your right hand off the outer edge of the cookie as it folds.
4. Once your cookie is folded and your fortune has been tucked inside, add a sticky dot to the center of the cookie to help hold its shape.
Make sure you have a few good pens and enough sticky dots to get you through the first month and your lunch note station will be ready for the first day of school!
I hope your school year is a great one! Happy crafting!
