Made it Monday

It's Monday, so I am joining up with 4th Grade Frolics to showcase what I made this week.

On Tuesday, I was able to do a little retail therapy.  During that outing I got some cheap clipboards from dollar tree (five of them @ $1.00 each) and some decorative duct tape from Michael's (on sale 2 rolls for $7.00).

So I got to work, wrapping tape around the boards and then added a bow at the top.  Here is how they turned out.

I think they turned out great!  Isn't the duct tape very beachy?  I can't wait for the kiddos to use them in the classroom.  

Next up, my table supply baskets.  I finally found some at the Dollar Tree (4 @$1.00 each) and got some ribbon at Hobby Lobby (2 rolls at $1.99 each).

These were simply adding the ribbon to fancy them up a bit. Nothing major!

Again, I think they will work out fine this year and I love the colors!  Doesn't ribbon make anything look like you spent a million bucks.

Lastly, I am very proud of my table signs.  I blogged about them on my Saturday post, but in case you missed it, here is an image of them:

These were the best find yet!  Only a $1.00 at the Dollar Tree.  They had them in hot pink and blue.  They had luau images to be attached but I just made my own images.  I can't wait to hang them in my classroom.  As a matter of fact, I have to stop by school today to drop off some of my retail therapy finds (my pile is getting mammoth), so I may just take a few minutes to hang them.  

So what have you been making?  Go link up and share.

Happy Blogging!
