This week Therm O Web is using the new “Teacher’s Pet” collection from Echo Park along with iCraft® DecoFoil™ to create an assortment of projects to help celebrate (or at least prepare for!) going back to school.

The papers in the collection are adorable and some are tailor made for creating quick and easy paper crafts.

The Alphabet paper is just the right size to create a set of mini flashcards – great for a younger student who is learning the alphabet. Cut the individual letters and corresponding image blocks apart. Attach the image to the back of a black die cut cardstock base using a tape runner.

Punch a circle underneath the uppercase letter and adhere the paper to the other side. Die cut the corresponding lower case letter out of iCraft® DecoFoil™ Hot Melt Adhesive and adhere to the inside of the punched out circle using a laminator. Peel off the protective layer, place a piece of gold Deco Foil™ on top, and run through the laminator again. Peel up the transfer sheet to reveal the foiled letter.

Repeat for all the letters/images to create a set of 26 mini flash cards. (They would also make cute cupcake toppers – simply insert a toothpick in between the cardstock and paper layers). Alice-Golden-TOW-DecoFoil-Echo-Park-Back-to-School-4

There is another sheet of paper in the collection called “Bookmarks” which makes creating a set of bookmarks a snap. Simply trim the paper, add black cardstock backing, and use either iCraft® DecoFoil™ Hot Melt or iCraft® Deco Foil™ Foam Adhesive and letter dies to add foiled monograms or names. A gold tassel is the finishing touch.

Add a card to complete the gift using papers and stickers from the collection. The medallion was cut from iCraft® DecoFoil™ Foam Adhesive and covered with gold foil. A little foil goes a long way to making a big impact!
