Paper Issues: Off the Page Back to School Challenge

Hi Everyone, today I have the September Off the Page Challenge for Paper Issues! We want you to use your scrappy supplies to help embellish, or create something fun for back to school.  Decorate folders, book covers, pencils, lunch boxes, lunch notes... etc.  Are you a teacher?  Use your supplies to create something for the classroom.  No kiddos going back to school, no worries..  create something using scrappy supplies that helps you keep organized... notebooks, bulletin boards, bookmarks, labels etc.  We'd love to see all of your ideas!!
Around my house we are trying to get organized and gather up all the necessary supplies for my daughter's senior year.  She is the secretary of one of her school organizations and she was looking for a way to keep all of the club information organized and separate from her school work, so I created a fun Fauxdori for her to use.  A Fauxdori is just a knock-off of a Midori travelers notebook.  You can use them for everything from a to do list, or to document your travels.   Usually they're made from leather or fabric... but this is Paper Issues so I made one from paper!  Take a peek...

 I used some Bella Blvd. Color Chaos to create my cover and the insert covers.  I laminated the pieces to make them more durable.  The insert covers hold some organizational printables including a calendar, to do lists and a notepad.  You can find these printables all over Pinterest, and many are free.  Everything is held in place with elastic thread.

Now for the fun part... design team member Danielle de Konink created the fabulous "to-do" printable, and it is available for free (here) in the Paper Issues Store! 

 Create something using this printable, or any back to school/classroom/organizational like those mentioned above and post it in the September Challenges Album in the Paper Issues Friends and Fans Facebook Group to be entered to win a $10 gift card to the store.  You have until October 11th to enter.  I can't wait to see what you create!  That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by!
