Today is my first day of school! I am so nervous but excited to take on first grade for the first time ever! We had our meet the teacher night and the kids loved the room and were so excited to be there. I don't think my room would look anything like it does without the inspiration I've gotten from teachers all over the world linking up here for MMI and via Pinterest. Thank you Tara for putting MMI together!
Ok, so onto my week's projects:
I shared my star jar a couple of years ago, but it always looked a bit messy on my board. This year I decided to section off the board to make it look neater and more organized. The main thing I wanted done was to add some headings with vinyl so I wouldn't have to write them up with marker. I took out my trusty Cricut and got to work. Of course, I had to use KG fonts for it! And this is how it turned out:
Then I had to section my board. I was going to use electrical tape but I saw a cancer warning on it and decided to look into using something else...So I headed over to Michael's and the staff there knew exactly what I should use. It's regular invisible tape that is tinted black! It looks like electrical tape, but it's not. I love how it looks and it's really easy to put on.You can find it in the scrapbooking department.
Next, I made my book bin labels to fit my woodland theme. I'm so thankful that my friend decided to gift these bookshelves to me. They make this area look so warm and inviting!
Next up, my BFF is using my Melonheadz collection to decorate her room, so I went ahead and made some things that will go with it. First up are some supply caddy labels. Loving how they turned out!
We also do read to self, so I made some chevron labels to fit along the front of the bins.
I picked up some chair pockets this weekend and I was not a fan of the name plates that came with. So I decided to make some cute ones instead :)
