Way too easy to delete my own post, rats!!!

This is an awesome way to remind our kiddos that we love them and to do their best while they're in school! My son looked forward to opening his lunchbox every day last year!

You will make a set of 6 small notes in the theme you choose- they need to have a blank/lined space to write a note on, and be embellished three times.

Please put each spot in an individual baggie, labeled with your group and peaname, along with sufficient return postage. Mail to:

I wasn't in this swap last time so I would love it if you posted examples. If I made different images with my Cricut and then stamped lines on the back for the note would that be okay? Also it says a small note, could you please give me a "no bigger than" measurement? Thanks!

If you look at the first one, I had a quick picture on the bottom, I just deleted the entire post when I was using my ipad- annoying!!

Seems like they were about 2x3, 3x4 in size- post-it note kind of size! It's such a great way to use up scraps, with a quick stamp or Cricut cut... Grant loved having one in his lunch every day, and TONS of kids commented to me at school when they were in the library about what kind of card he had that day!

Thanks for signing me up and I will absolutely embellish the cricut lunch notes. This will be a great "take with me" project. I like to be able to bring a craft to work with me to do on my breaks.

When my kids are buying lunch instead of bringing from home these will still make a nice little surprise tucked into their daily planners.

My husband said it was him or scrapbooking... so I took pictures of him packing and made the cutest page ever!

I am done with my spots. As I was making these, I couldn't help but think what cute journal spots these would make too!

I will take a spot in ocean animals.
Does a penguin count? My ds LOVES penguins!

For the bird spot I ended up with an owl, so hopefully that counts. He is pretty cute, but my favorite one was the space spot!!

Love penguins!! Yes! They're so versatile- I used some for gift tags on presents too last year. Easy to make, and easy to use! Yea- I'll add you!

Hi Kate,
Would you mind taking me out of the super heros category? I am really struggling with what to do with that one and figure someone else would do a much better job. Thanks for understanding.

quick question.....do these need to be in little card form to open up for journaling, or one sided like a tag?

Having fun creating these lunchbox notes. My kids keep coming in to see what I'm making next. They *love* getting these in their lunchboxes!

I only have a few categories left.
