Back To School with your Bind-it-All

It's the most wonderful time of the year! Back to school. I know most kids won't agree but as parents, as enjoyable as summer is, sometimes it's nice to get back into the school routine.
This year I made a countdown calendar for my kids (and myself) to count the days we have left to enjoy summer and the days we have left to get organized for school. To create this countdown cover an 8x10 Clip-Board Wood cover with school themed patterned paper. Then cut 10 pieces of 3x4 paper and make it into a little mini album to hang in the middle of the board.

Use the Rivet Hole Punch Set and Pound-it-All to make 2 holes at the top of the board to hang it and another 2 holes in the middle of the board to hang the countdown mini album.

Decorate each page and add a number for each day you want to countdown. Then to change the day undo the bow and flip to the next page. This way I can use it again next year.
You could easily adapt this to a Halloween or Christmas Countdown just by changing the patterned paper you use.  

Yippee...only a few days left to full time crafting while the little ones are back to school!

Happy crafting!
