Back to School Boxes and Gift Cards

Back to School Boxes

I love Back to School season. All the stores are filled with crayons, markers, pencils, binders and more. Don’t you just love walking through those isles of brand new school supplies? I have created some boxes and gift cards to celebrate this fun time and all those little kiddos and teachers getting back into the classroom. You can fill the boxes with treats, school supplies and more. These would be great for teacher gifts or a special way to let your child know you’re cheering them on.
