    Supplies Needed

    Instructions

    1. Use Elmer's® Washable School Glue Stick to attach two "Computer Class" papers side by side, to box lid. With X-ACTO® 8" Scissors, cut two 1 1/2" x 12" pieces "Ruler Stripe" (cutting rows of blue "school is fun", ruler and apples). With Glue Stick, attach two pieces so that they cover top of "Computer Class" papers. From remaining “Ruler Stripe” paper cut two 2” x 12” pieces (cutting rows of  ruler, apple and blue numbers). With Glue Stick, attach two pieces to front edge of box.
    2. Cut 4 1/2" x 8 3/4" piece "School Buses" paper. Use Glue Stick to attach vertical close-up photo of child to upper area of paper, leaving room to write title in open space below photo using pencil. Then trace lines with Painters® Marker.
    3. From backs of scrapbook papers, choose colors to coordinate with other five photos and cut 4 1/2" x 6 1/2" piece for each. Use Glue Stick to mount photos to paper. Referring to photo, position and use Glue Stick to glue mounted photos to lid. Add stickers as desired.
