Monday Made It #1

This is my FIRST Monday Made It!  I'm finally getting a few projects completed now that the first day of school is sneaking up and staring me down.
One of my goals is to add a few more soft, homey touches to my classroom to create a more inviting environment.  This week I brought home a few baskets and tubs to brighten them up with ribbon.  It is such a simple fix but I hope it will have a big impact.

This was my inspiration:

And this is what I did for my classroom:

I also took a few pieces of scrapbook paper, a bread crumbs container, and some clothespins to make a few organizational items.  This was my inspiration:

And this is what I did for my classroom:




 Now I have a few binders to work on before summer slips away!  Have a great Monday:)

    1. I probably should have used mod podge, but I was doing this late at night (after everyone was asleep!) and I didn't have any. I made a quickie homemade version with glue and water and it worked really well. The hardest part was cutting the scrapbook paper into those tiny little pieces!

    1. Thank you! I am pleased with how they turned out. Although, I can't believe I put $12 worth of ribbon on $3 worth of baskets!!

  7. Very cute! I just made clothespins, too! I don't remember who, but someone told me that a great way to do it is to glue the clothes pins right to the scrapbook paper and then use an X-Acto knife to cut it out after the glue dries. Just a tip in case you need to make more!
