AstroBrights Back to School Crafts + Give a Brighter Year Sweepstakes

This is a partnered post written by me on behalf of Astrobrights Papers by Neenah Paper. All opinions are 100% mine.

How many of you use the AstroBrights papers in all or some of your paper crafting projects? Me! Okay, I admit, I love their papers and it's partly due to the fact that they come in 23 bright and fun colors! Not only that, they are a heavier weight of paper so they are the perfect paper to use in many of your paper crafting projects!

The AstroBrights papers can be used to make homemade business cards, pamphlets, brochures, in homemade greeting cards, scrapbook pages (spray with archival mist first), used in altering box projects and so much more! My granddaughter loves to use them when she colors, draws and does her homemade refrigerator artwork on them! We love the bright colors!

I wanted to tell you all about the "Give a Brighter Year" Sweepstakes that is going on right now and being sponsored by the great folks at AstroBrights! You can support your local Elementary School by entering and we all know how schools need our support this year. You can win cash prizes and the school of your choice can win up to $300,000 in much needed school supplies. Make sure you head on over to their web site to grab the details and to enter.

AstroBrights would love to have your participation in their design challenge and you can participate by creating something fun and unique using AstroBrights papers. When you share your designs and ideas on social media, you will want to hashtag your share/post with #goastrobrights so that they can find your posts!

I would love to know how many of you use AstroBrights papers? What kind of projects do you use them in? A few weeks ago we made some homemade pinwheels and used the brightly colored papers in our project. We are thinking about making some homemade paper kites (for toddlers of course) and will probably use the AstroBrights to make those. I love crafting with my grandkids and would love some paper crafting project ideas from my readers.

Please leave your thoughts and project ideas below in my blog's comment form. Thanks!
