Monday Made It: Teacher Gifts, Posters, and Winners

I love Mondays in the summer because Tara's linky holds me accountable to get some projects done!
My first "Made-It" was a Picture Frame Post-It Holder inspired by Pinterest.
First I gathered all of my supplies.
You will need:
  • clear 4x6 acrylic frames (Dollar Tree)
  • cardstock or scrapbook paper (cut to 4x6 pieces)
  • ribbon
  • tags
  • post-its
  • scissors/paper cutter
  • hot glue gun (optional)

Just cut the paper to size (4x6) place in frame, tie ribbon and tag (secure in back with hot glue-optional), and place post-its on the frame. Super easy and chic!
I think these gifts for my team members and my children's teachers will be a hit!
My next "Made-It" was a creation I made for my classroom-it's an 11x14 poster! (Gotta keep the heel theme!)

But then my friends that wear ballet flats felt left out...
And then my friends that love flip flops weren't feeling the love...
And finally, some teachers like to boot, scoot, and boogie while they teach!
Which one do you teach in?
Late breaking news....I have the winners for my 300 Follower Giveaway! Thank you to everyone who participated, donated, and followed along-I appreciate all of you!

  3. I see a post-it holder with my name on it!!! They are super cute! :) What a great gift for my children's teachers! Oh wait, you are one of my child's teachers so I can't give you one. LOL Have no fear though, I can ALWAYS find something else you like since I know you so well!

    1. I forgot to mention...LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the high heels poster. I'm definitely getting one for my classroom. :)

  8. Love the post-it frames. The ribbon and tags totally make them super sweet! I'm still in awe that you teach in high heels, seriously! The posters are amazing, as usual.

  9. Super cute post it frames! I love that and they are so easy! Adorable!

    I would need all of the posters except flip flops because we aren't allowed to wear those. I teach in all of the rest. Probably least in heels...I've gotten wimpy... :O(

    Cute posters though!

  19. Just bought the stuff to make these at Dollar Tree! My husband is sooooo mad that I saw this post. It will be a fun project for me during the summer....I'll save them for back to school. I want a cute little poster/button too that says Inside Every Classroom is a teacher who wears MEPHISTOS (like Birkenstocks) Some of ole broads can't wear the cute stuff anymore:(

  20. Joanne, these are just great! I think you just gave me my idea for back to school gifts for my team because I am team leader:) Thank you for the inspiration! I hope mine turn out half as cute as yours....those are adorable:) Thanks for linking up:)
