Using p. 5 & 6 from the Big Dot Daily Binder from Cait at Sliding into 1st, I cut out the center of the frames, then I chose a font and matching colors to print my titles. Finally, I backed them with either navy or brown cardstock. After I took the picture and posted it in on Facebook, I realized I couldn't see the i in information and it should be s' on students' success. Ugh! My cat, Skittles, doesn't mind.
I love Pinterest. This summer I got "pinspiration" from Tara's "Believe" sign from Fourth Grade Frolics and the "Mrs. Ashley" sign. I used my circle stencil to trace some polka dots, chose a font I liked and printed out "masterpieces", so that it would fit on my canvas, picked out colors that match my classroom, then started painting. I finished the sides with ribbon. I am still debating if I will hang it with ribbon or just some Command hooks. Either way it will make an ugly corner of my classroom much cuter. Hopefully my students will create lots of "masterpieces" to display under it.
Not everything I've made this summer has been or school. I fell in love with this button snowflake and knew I had to make one. The hardest part was finding enough matching white buttons.
In June, my husband and I celebrated our 16th anniversary. He is more romantic and sentimental than I am, so I made him a deck of cards with 52 reasons why I love him. He was very appreciative.
Finally, my last two projects were for the Fourth of July.
The America banner is a free printable from At Second Street.
This is my pinspiration wreath. The original idea was from Naptime Crafts.
Ok, I think I am caught up now. I love "Made It Mondays"! I will miss them when school starts.
