Back to School Vintage Vogue Style!

My daughter is heading off to middle school this year. Wow, the years have flown by! She gets to have her very own locker. Apparently this is a big deal. I can't remember back that far. So we have been on the search for an organizer to adhere to the inside of her locker door. Easy task, right? Wrong! Her locker is only 6" wide (if that) and we have not been able to find an organizer that will fit. My solution ... I will make her one! She has seen it (minus the Mommy note) and loves it. Thank goodness!

It holds a mini composition book, a few spare pencils/pens, and clip(s). It has a Top Note mini magnet board for important notes. The "pocket" at the bottom can hold a few other things (i.e. lip gloss - no lipstick for her yet, erasers, pencil sharpener).

My plan is to put my little note on the board after we have toured the school and she has practiced opening her locker 100 times. Daddy will have to distract her enough for me to add the good luck note and a mini chocolate bar in case she needs a midday pick-me-up.

Thanks for visiting! Happy Stamping!
