Her Craft Kre8tions DT

School days, school days
Dear old golden rule days
Readin' and 'ritin' and 'rithmetic
Taught to the tune of the hickory stick
You were my queen in calico
I was your bashful barefoot beau
And you wrote on my slate"I love you, so"
When we were a couple of kids

The three Rs, a widely used abbreviation for the basic elements of a primary school curriculum: reading, ’riting (writing), and ’rithmetic (arithmetic) which is what the theme is for this month's Her Craft Kre8tions challenge!

Each Design Team member has received a piece of chalkboard paper approximately 6 x 6-inches. Now, where the challenge lies, is Design Team member is to create a "school" type theme whether it be a class lesson or something that their beau or them could have written on their slate. We're going to see how creative this piece of chalkboard paper can be made into with their "School Lesson" of "readin', 'ritin' and 'rithmatic.

We have a great line-up of super creative talent along with our Design Team Page:

    So, for my project, I upcycled a string bean can and made a pencil cup, b/c one can never have enough pencil cups! I covered the can with the chalkboard paper and then used real chalk to decorate it. I then sprayed it with a fixitive so the chalk wouldn't smear. Then added ribbon and some buttons to decorate. Hope you like! :)

    There will be some super blog candy for one lucky winner that posts on each post along the way including the Design Team blog.
