Today I am sharing our Back to School Emergency Kit. This makes the cutest gift for teachers and it’s also perfect for kids that have access to a locker at school. You can put inside all types of happy goodies. We filled ours up with lotion, gum, mints, candy, hand sanitizer, lip balm, a gift card, and more. Take a look!

MATERIALS

1 Wood or Metal Box… I found this one at my local Michaels Craft Store.

Acrylic Paint and Brushes

Vinyl Machine Cutter and Vinyl

 

 

TUTORIAL

1

First paint your box white. I decided to paint just the top of my box since I loved the wood finish of it.

2

Measure your box and design your stencil using your vinyl machine program.

I made three of these boxes… Two of them for my daughters with their names on it and another one for my first grader’s teacher. The awesome thing about it is that you can customize any stencil you like! 

When you are ready use your vinyl machine cutter to make the stencil!

Apply the stencil on top of the box and with a flat brush tap the red paint to make the design.

After the paint is dry just peel it off!
