For some reason I felt compelled to make the nieces, ages 11 & 13, a little back-to-school package.

Every school kid needs #2 pencils, right?



And because this is the 21st Century, for crying out loud, I thought we'd send them iPads. Ahem.





The each have between 30 and 40 pages. Pardon my primered thumbnail... I'm redoing a bathroom, too!



The pads were made using all stash! The pencils were only partly stash.



They don't go back until after Labor Day, so I think I'll probably make little fabric bags to put them in before I mail them off.

HAHA! Well, I wouldn't have thought of this for them if they didn't have a rather giant, poop emoji plush HAT at their house when we were there for The ManFlesh's book tour!

Great projects and pun-work.  Those poop pencil toppers are awesome!

I can only imagine the utter disappointment that someone would experience if you told them that you'd gotten them an iPad, but, instead of an expensive electronic device, you handed them a little pad of paper!   Grin

Thanks, y'all!

This is why I decided NOT to tell them at all or put them into boxes that looked like they might be iPads which I have seen people do for gag gifts!
