I bought this wooden suitcase from Hobby Lobby (I originally planned to put paper dolls in it, but hopefully I'll find another one for that purpose). It was 50% off, so I only paid 5 dollars for it. I cut an O from scrapbook paper and decoupaged it onto the suitcase.
I bought a bunch of these plastic pencil cases from WM when they were 25 cents each. I put velcro on the back of it and on the inside of the suitcase to hold it up. I filled the pencil case with stickers, mechanical pencils (O has never seen mechanical pencils, so they will be exciting for her), blank labels to use for the titles of her books, erasers, etc
Here's a picture showing the velcro on the pencil case and the suitcase.
I put a packet of lined paper in the suitcase. O's a little young for this paper, but I know she'll be excited about it and will have fun trying it out.
She's also going to love these glittery numbers and letter stickers.
I made a bunch of scrapbook and computer paper books to add to the suitcase. I think this will be her favorite part of the gift. To make the books, I just cut the paper to the size I wanted, folded it in half, and then cut the computer paper to fit in it. I planned to staple the books, but that wouldn't work. My mom came to the rescue and sewed the pages together on the sewing machine (while I worked on a gift for E). I tied the strings at the each end of the book, so that the binding wouldn't unravel. Once I started making books, I couldn't stop, so I'll be able to replenish her supply often :)
These super cute erasers are a last minute addition to this kit (Thanks to Grandaddy Harry who discreetly purchased them at the Cracker Barrel and slipped them to me when O wasn't looking!).
