Monday Made It

I love to link up with Tara from 4th Grade Frolics!

This week I only have 2 projects ... My third one is just too raw to show you!  Next week, I hope to blow your socks off!

My first project is very easy ... I just made my germx bottles for the bathroom returners.
I got the bottles at Dollar Tree, peeled the labels, printed my labels, laminated, and taped them on.  They look so cute and will serve their purpose this coming year.
Germs, Be Gone!

The next project I worked on was my class writing journals.  I love the way they turned out and can't wait to use them this year.  I also am taking requests of writing prompts to add to the package.
Just click on the pictures below to check them out:  
They were made to match our Student Writing Word Walls and our Word Wall Sound Card Bundle!

I hope you come back next week for my next Monday Made It ... It is going to be exciting!
Happy Teaching!

Monday Made It ~

It is that time again ... time to link up with Tara from 4th Grade Frolics!

This week I am going to post my little projects from "Sunny Days" @ St. Peter's U.M.C. ~ LOVE the littles!

My first project was the door I made to welcome my little friends.
We were the "Swordfish" class.
Here is our ocean.  I covered the door with butcher paper 1st.  Then, I took a dark blue plastic table cloth and cut the waves. After that, I added the swordfish.  

Here are the swordfish up close.  I made them out of scrapbook paper, colored craft sticks, and wiggle eyes. The kids loved them and they made sure I got them off the door and in their bags on Friday!

Another craft we made were tissue paper turtles.  Because we were so short on time, I had the turtles put together and ready for them to paint with glue and add the tissue paper.  I love the way our turtles came out!  The kids did a nice job!

Here is one turtle up close!

Hope you liked these two crafty ideas.
Happy Crafting!

Monday Made It

I am linking up with Tara again for another ... 
Monday Made It~

This week's Monday Made It is all about my little girl!!!

I just love creating things!  These projects I made for my little girl's room!!!

My first project is this holder for all of her bows.  Let me tell ya, she has tons of bows!   I bought the plaque from Walmart and decoupaged it with zebra tissue paper from Hobby Lobby.  I painted and glittered the letters, hot glued them on and the attached the ribbons with hot glue.  This would be a SUPER easy project for a transportation clip chart, lunch menu, etc.  There are all kinds of different shaped plaques! She loves it!

My second project, since I liked playing with decoupage, was to make a light switch and her name on wood pieces.  I love working with the tissue paper, it is very easy peasy!!!

My last project I saw in a magazine somewhere, but I can't remember which one...  I love this one because it is a space saver!!!
All it is:  Two boards from Hobby Lobby, silver links, and zebra ribbon.  Just fasted the ribbon to the links, slip them around the board, measure and add a nail.  The animals on the shelf are from when she was a baby ... she was not ready to let them go.
I hope you had fun and got some ideas!!!
Happy Summer!
