School Auction Basket - Movie Night

Here is the School Fundraiser Auction Basket - "Movie Night themed" finished!  Our last school did things quite different than where we are now. They had an online sign up sheet for each class and usually the parents would be beat down the door to see who could get the most/biggest stuff there first. They always turned out great because of all the willing support of the parents. there was a different approach. The teacher did one basket and I did the donations from the parents in the class:( Ugh say what? 
Being a former teacher I knew that I could get some donations from businesses but it was hard to do since I was only
I used this as a template for the donation letter I wrote. This is what I took with me when I asked for donations. It helped a lot!

The clapper was one of my favorite parts of the basket. It came from Party City for $2.99. I personalized it with my Silhouette machine for some added character.

I added a clip art of popcorn and a drink to recognize the companies that donated to the basket.

      1. Sorry, Lee. It took so long to answer your question. You asked how I got the text on the graphic, right? I used my silhouette cutting machine to put the text on it and then cut it out. Hope that helps.


    I promise to reply.
