Crafty Classroom Creations

I've been busy the last several days recreating some cute things I've found on other blogs!  It's been fun!  Although...... making the Teacher Toolbox reinforced my dislike for tedious tasks. All of the tiny measurements, cutting, and little pieces of tape....gugh!  :)  It turned out really good, though, and I'm excited to fill it up for next year!  Here are the projects:

Head over to Classroom DIY for the tutorial!


I painted this one!


The Teacher Toolbox
As I'm sure you've seen, there are MANY cute renditions of this all over Pinterest!  The original idea is from Rebecca Rojas at Create*Teach*Share.  Head to her site for a tutorial and printables!

  2. Hey there! Just found your blog through pinterest and I absolutely LOVE everything on here! I am (hopfully) going to be a first year teacher this year and love all your ideas and will definitely use a lot of them in my classroom!

    I wanted to know how you made your labels for your toolbox? I have downloaded the templates from the other website you linked up, but I want to make mine similar to yours because I love the polka dots (i'm a polkda dot freak! :)) did you just print on plain paper and then add the words to polka dot papers? I bet that was tedious if you did! :) Thanks so much!

    1. Hi, Rebekah -

      Thanks for the sweet comment! For my teacher toolbox, I cut scrapbook paper to the size of the drawers (from Hobby Lobby) and then printed off my labels on colored copy paper. Yes, it WAS tedious! :) I'm happy with how it turned out, though! Best of luck on finding your first teaching job! :)

  3. Hi Jessica,
    I just purchased the organizer today, and I'm so happy I came across your's - I LOVE it!! Thanks so much for the post! Did you just tape the paper to the printed words and then tape that all or did you glue/modpodge?

    Thanks!
    Tracy

    1. Thanks, Traci! I printed off the labels on colored paper and glued them to the polka dot scrapbook paper. Then, I just carefully taped everything to the drawers. Hope this makes sense! Good luck! :)

  4. I will be doing this tomorrow! Thanks so much, it totally makes sense - who'd have thought - just glue & scotch tape! I live in CT and boy, I wish we had Hobby Lobby around us!! :) I actually made the large letter with polka dots last month from ideas from pinterest too!
