Back to School Survival Kit

Hello all!  I was trying to think of something to make for Back-to-School besides a card.  Finally I remembered this great idea someone gave me a couple years ago.  So, I pulled it out and figured out the pattern.  I don't know who made the original since it isn't signed, but its a great idea!

I used an image from Mo's Digital Pencil called Harvard.  Isn't he the cutest thing?  He reminds me of my son, Benjamin.  The papers are scraps from my stash.  He is colored with acrylics as always.  I'm not pleased with his face, I need more practice.

Here's the back.  I did all the wording on the computer and cut them with my Nesties.

Now for the fun part!  Pull the ribbon and:

Isn't that great?  When the stress of school is too much, here is an emergency supply of chocolate!  lol  (Since I'm the teacher shouldn't I get one of these, too?)  I hope my boys love these.  They know they should hide the chocolate from their mother!!  lol

I am entering this in the following challenges:

Addicted to Stamps - Anything but a Card
Cupcake Craft Challenge - Back to School
Cute Card Thursday - Anything Goes

That's about it.  Thanks for taking a peek.

Blessings & Hugs
