It's time for Monday Made It with Tara!
First up are some more hand sanitizer gifts! This is so easy and personalized that I had to make them! Last year one of my colleagues had hand sanitizer with poems in them at the front desk of our school and I thought it just added such a personal touch! **The monogrammed ones are my favorite!
Step 1: Create a design and print on regular copy paper.
Step 2: Copy your paper onto transparency film-bring to printer unless you have a laser printer.
Step 3: Cut and roll paper to fit it top of bottle. The transparency film will unroll.
Step 4: Use a cuticle stick to straighten.
Easy, peasy and customized for your class or your friends!
Here are a few I made for my teaching buddies:
I decided to make a class set of those folders I've seen pinned everywhere. I am hoping these are a great addition to my back to school list-it seems genius! I will use mine for classwork, centers, morning work, and paper. (I chose categories that won't take up too much space, since I'm not sure how this new idea will work). Has anyone used these before? I'd love to hear from you!
Here are a couple of tips I learned along the way since I couldn't find the pin when I needed it. Not sure if this is the correct way, but I will share how I made mine. I cut the folder without brads to a height of 11 inches so it would fit in my 3 hole punch. I had to open the folder back up to hole punch one side at a time-folded wouldn't fit. My BEAUTIFUL electric hole punch is at school...it is the best investment and is AMAZING! I like all my folders to be matching-quick management tool when you want to quickly scan the room to see if everyone is ready. I'm hoping this will be quick and easy for my students to find their work all in one spot!
I made a class set of my Back to School Autobiographies-I'm so excited to have these done! I'd be more excited if I knew WHO was in my class, but I have to have patience! (my worst quality!)
Can't wait to have my students decorate the composition book covers to represent themselves! (Confession: I have a binding machine at home.) I got a great deal on it! (at Office Depot, of course!) Not until I bought this about two years ago did I realize how much I love having one at home! I don't use it much after school starts, but during summer it's a MUST HAVE! So, I'm sharing this on sweet Sabra's Must Have linky!
Isn't she a beauty??!! :O)
Can't wait to see what everyone else made this past week! So many creative teachers!
