Designer Tip: Have your child write his name in his own handwriting at the top of the page as a fun memento of that stage in his life.


  1. Place the border paper at the bottom of the page. Mat the 4”x6” photo with both black and red papers, leaving a 1/8” border of each. Glue the photo 2” from the left side of the page and 1 ½” from the top. Use a glue dot and the “+” to secure the “A” Brad Buddie™ to the bottom right corner of the school house tag and personalize the tag with the grade. Glue the tag to the left side of the photo.
  2. Lightly sand the edges of the monogram letters. Arrange the letters to the right side of the photo. Secure the “School” Brad Buddie™ between the words to spell “1st school day”. Glue blue brackets on each side.
  3. Use glue dots and the black triangle brad to secure the pencil Brad Buddie™ at the top right corner of the photo. Use the pen to write your subjects name to the right of the pencil.
