Monday Made It {July 8th}

Another Monday.  *Sigh*
I've been busy working, and working, and working some more on something **BIG** for my classroom.  I'm about a fourth of the way through and want to be finished before the end of July. I tell you this because it's an excuse for only one Monday Made It this week.

(I know...excuses, excuses.)

But, the ONE thing that I am sharing today is something I hope you will like.  I received a lot of nice comments and messages about the Copy/Grade/File box from a few weeks ago:

So, I made a matching Teacher Toolbox for it.



If you'd like this file, you can get it {here}.  

Last year, I made the Teacher Toolbox and it's one of the things that I made that I use the most.  Here is a picture of the one I made last year (and if you click on the picture, you will be taken to the blog post from last year explaining how I put it together and how you can also use the editable template that I made last year):

  

There you have it...one little project for the week.  But, one that I know I will be using like crazy this year.  So, I'm happy.  This one will be kept behind my desk and will be for my use only.  (Which is why there is a label titled "beauty" for my lipstick, Burts Bees chapstick and eh-hem...dental floss.)  

Happy Monday Made It Blog Hop time ;)

  1. Super cute! If I made one of these, I might not need the top curtain on that TV cart. HOWEVER, I would still need the bottom one! ;)

  6. I made a supply box last year and I have a drawer for my chapstick! I think I want to make a grade/copy/file box for next year.

  11. I've been dying to make one of these! I have a mountain of scrapbook paper but I just couldn't seem to summon up the gumption to put it together. These colors are perfect for my room and totally my style. I just downloaded both of these. Thank you for making my little crafty teacher heart happy this morning!!

    1. It's not crafty....it's math curriculum related. Stay tuned :)

  15. Your toolbox looks amazing! Love the colour combination! You are inspiring me to search for my own toolbox. I think I am going to need to do some "googling" and locate the nearest store around me. Thanks for sharing the labels. I love them.

    How about just a portion of a picture on the "BIG" thing for the classroom? Very curious!

  19. Is your toolbox white? Did you get it @ Lowe's? I'm super excited to make one of these and to de-clutterize my desk. Right now I have ceramic cups for pens, markers, pencils, etc. I can't stand all the "stuff". Super cute!

    1. I should have said that I spray painted it first...sorry! It was the same one I bought last year from Lowes. It was blue originally. I'm ditching my ceramic cups this year! I can't wait to de-clutter the top of my computer table.

  20. Love the update! You are inspiring me to finally make the teacher tool box purchase. Now that I see yours, I just don't think I'll be satisfied with my desk until I do :)

    Thanks for sharing!

  26. I snagged your copy/file/grade freebie, but I haven't made it yet because I can't get in my room yet. Now I will have to go shopping for the tool box because these cuties are a must for me!!! Where did you get your tool box? I know there are a couple of different stores and brands that people are using and I want to get the one that fits your labels. :-)

  27. That is hilarious that you keep dental floss at school! My dentist tells me that I need to floss more, so maybe I should keep some at work! :) I have been wanting to make one of these toolboxes for a year now and you have made TWO! I love your new one the best!! :) What are you going to do with your old one??

  29. I just bought the 22 drawer organizer after seeing it all over Instagram and Pinterest and was (seriously) stressing about how I was going to make my own labels fit the drawers. Thank you so much for sharing, this is awesome!!!
