The First Day of School should be a holiday, though I'm not sure who is celebrating more--kids or parents! The Last Day of School is definitely a holiday, and teachers might be celebrating even more than students. And if you've got a kindergartner, then you know the 100th Day of School is a kindergarten holiday. Commemorate these special days--and photo opportunities--with style!
1st Day of School is extremely versatile since the "1st" card can be easily unstrung and replaced with "100th" to read "100th Day of School" or "Last" to read "Last Day of School" as shown in the pictures above. The rest of the banner can remain strung on the pale gray ribbon without any change. Each 5x5 inch card is hand cut and punched, then stamped with acrylic paint in apple red, school uniform blue, pencil yellow, grass-stain green, robins egg blue and crayon orange. Then each card is antiqued with pale gray ink to make the lettering pop. Last, the cards are strung on 72 inches of soft gray satin ribbon, with extra ribbon off of each end for ease of hanging. Hung perfectly straight, "1st Day of School" is 55 inches long, with the length varying depending on how droopy or straight you hang the banner. Whether you are a professional photographer using the banners as a darling photo prop or a proud mom marking your children's milestones, "1st Day of School" makes a delightful statement that you are special, you are important, you are loved.
Sturdy enough to stand up to years of use, this banner is also light enough to be hung up with just scotch tape! As you can see from the close-up photos, there are unique flaws that are a result of the process of stamping with paint; these enhance the vintage nature of this delightful banner.
