{back 2 basics} lil' luna

 Miss Kristyn could not get any cuter, and neither could her blog.  I am so happy to have her here today!
Hi there Brown Paper Packages Readers!
My name is Kristyn and I blog over at Lil' Luna.
I am so thrilled that Kierste asked me to be a part of this series.
I just love the girl and everything she creates. :)

I don't know about you but Back to School time means Back to making LUNCHES!
I don't have little ones in school just yet, BUT I have a hubby who LOVES it when I make his lunches.

 I know a lot of mom's don't make their kids' lunches, but I know there are some that do. I always told myself I would because I still remember the NOTES from my mom in my lunch and the comics my dad would draw on my lunch sack.

Any who,
the one problem about lunch making is figuring out who wants what in their lunch.
Problem Solved. :)

Here is what I did...

-Sheet Metal
-Food Clipart
-Plant Gems
-Mod Podge
-Foam Brush
-1.5 inch circle punch

1. Add Vinyl to Sheet Metal. 
{I got my sheet metal from a wholesale company online.}
2. Download/Print Food Clipart Images.

Meal Planning Pics
3. Punch out images using a 1.5 inch circle punch. Mod podge to the back of a plant gem. Let dry. {Cut off excess paper}

4. Hot glue magnets to the backs.

5. Add ribbon and hang!

It's even more convenient to put it by or on your fridge so all the food magnets can be on the sides and the kiddos {and hubby!} can EASILY add them to their designated square!

So FUN, right!?
Now you can have your children decide what they want the night before and so YOU do not worry have to about scrambling around in the morning to make sure each kid gets what they want.

It's simply an easy way to make things a little more organized as you get your kids ready for school!

Thanks for having me, Kierste, and be sure to come on over to Lil' Luna to say HI!

XO - Kristyn

What a clever idea! With a son and a husband packing their lunches each day, this would really help speed up the morning process.  Thank you, Kristyn!  Make sure you stop by Lil' Luna for even more fun projects and ideas!
