Back to School Classroom projects

This project was such a HOOT to make!!! LOL  I love to reuse and recycle containers for the classroom.  It can save so much money for a teacher.  My Mom saves her Crystal Light containers for me throughout the year.  They are the perfect size for so  many things.  Last year I posted a project using these containers for holding those yummy Rolo pretzel treats for my son's bus drivers, teachers, and friends.  If it is plastic, save it!!!  You can always use them :)  I hope you like this project (one of many for my classroom this year)  I am using the containers this year for students lunch sticks and yes, you guessed it-my theme is Owls!!!!!  I used the Mickey Font and Hoot N' Holler cartridges.  More pictures to come!  Hope you are enjoying your Sunday.  :)

Just a reminder that tomorrow is the last day to submit your project for my very first design team!!!  I am super excited and have been enjoying the projects that have been coming in!!  There are so many talented crafters out there-I love seeing everything that has been created so far!!!!  Please submit your project no later than 12:00 p.m. on August 17th in order to have a chance to be selected.  

Well it is back to work for me-today was my first day back to school and I have been trying to get the classroom decorated and organized for my new incoming third graders.  Wow I think I forget each year just how much work it takes to get the classroom ready-I could always use an extra week to get things together!!  I am really looking forward to having new students, fresh faces, and eager little ones ready to work hard and have fun learning!!  

I have been working on creating banners, welcome signs and other exciting things using my Cricut.  I will post pictures soon!  I hope you are having a fantastic week!!!!
