Schultüte? What is this? LOL- well I talked about this in a post before. Let’s translate this German Word into School Cone. When German kids have their first day in school they get a cardboard cone filled with school supplies and sweets. It is a big deal for the kids and makes the first day of school even more spectacular. I still have mine on the attic at my Mom’s house which a friend of hers created with her and now one of my best friends and mother of my oldest godson asked me to create one with her for her youngest one.
Na – Euch brauch ich ja nicht erklären was eine Schultüte ist ;) Meine Freundin und mein Patenkind haben uns jedenfalls letztens dran gemacht eine solche für den kleinen Linus zu gestalten und das Vintage Street Market Papier war dafür perfect geeignet.
So my friend and my godson had a creative morning to create this little surprise and we had a lot of fun. The Party Games Paper was such a fitting theme and the size was perfect to cover this pretty big cone :)
We used the Crepe Paper from the Party Games and the Dimestore Vogue Kit and applied it to the top . We also spelled out Linus’ name mounting the Party Games Letters on sturdier carstock and 3D Foam Pads by Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L™.
We used the die cut tags from the Party Games Kit and mounted a little chalk piece on it (ok…not so little ;) ) .
And look how proud and cute my sweet godson looks with the Schultüte for his brother in his hand. This was an absolute fun morning and I’m sure Linus will love his Schultüte when he has his first school day next month :)
What traditions do you have in your country for the first school day?
Habt Ihr schon eine Schultüte gebastelt dieses Jahr und was für ein Motiv habt Ihr gewählt?
