Monday Made It {I've Lost Count}

I missed it last week (beach) and I was sad.  For realzzzzzzzz.

But, I'm back this week and soooo happy to link up with my dear, dear bloggy friend, Tara.

Remember this mess?

I finally finished a few things.  I guess that means I can start something new.

These are the projects that I finished:

Birthday Balloons: 

Thanks to this cute freebie from Brooke at Once Upon a First Grade Adventure, I was able to make these:

Then, I made this canister for Highlighters:
I'm not sure of the cute if it is yours, please comment below so that I can update and give you full credit.  I love this one:

Next up-
Repurposed Pizza Trays:
I'm not sure if you remember these (I really only had a handful of followers when I made these before):
But, I had to repurpose these to match my new color scheme in my classroom.  Here are the new ones (which I will use for my classroom jobs).  These are pizza pans.  You can read the original post {here}.

It's hard to see, but I replaced the yellow flower with a purple one.  They look better in person :)

Pencil Containers:
Thanks to Kristen (Ladybug's Teacher Files) for these labels, I was able to create these:

Number Magnets:
I made these magnets that I've seen around blog-town.  I used E6000 glue, glass pebbles from Michaels and I created 1.25-inch circles.  

So that's it for now.  I'm off to create some more things this week.  I've sworn myself off of all social media until I can cross off at least 5 things from my to-do list.  See you in a few days.

See ya soon :)

  4. Your cans are so cute! I need to make 2 sets of them- one for me and one for my mom. I have the buckets, just need the ribbon and labels!

  5. Pebbles: I have struggled with who is finished with a given task because when they are done they begin working on something else and it's hard to tell the difference. LOVE your idea. Please tell me how you attached the paper to the pebbles. Thanks!

    1. With the E6000 glue. You just squeeze on a little bit of glue and then place the paper onto the glue. I also went over the top of the paper so that there was a smooth back, too.

  6. Girl you have been busy!! I love it all. My to-do list just keeps getting bigger!

  7. Your projects look great! I keep seeing that "highlight your name" idea and think I need to make that project happen for me this year!'ve inspired me! :)

  18. You have definitely convinced me that I need to do those birthday straws. Toooooo cute! Absolutely love them! The bright colors are fantastic.

    Reaching for the TOP!

  19. Wow! These are awesome! Hobby Lobby knows me by name thanks to all of your adorable ideas! Quick did make your ribbons look that way? Any special procedure? Thanks again for your inspirations!

    1. Tied them in knots around a handle. I used about 3-4 inch ribbons.

  20. Did you just drill holes in your pizza pans to hang your ribbon? They are too cute!

  21. Lots of fantastic projects:) I have to remember to make the highlighter basket!

  22. I'm having a hard time visualizing the pebbles. Do you have something hanging above the pocket charts that the pebbles are on until the students move them? And where do they put them when they take them down? I LOVE LOVE LOVE this idea, because I end up writing their numbers on the board when I discover they are missing work after I enter it!!

  23. I'm one of your newest followers and love your stuff. I was convinced to make the Birthday Balloon tin and going to make the pencil tins as well. I want to make the number magnets but I was wondering what type of magnets you used for them?

  24. Love your crafts!! I need to make the birthday balloons before school starts!!

  27. Elizabeth, WOW!!!! You got so much done!! And everything is wonderful!! This is just what I needed to start getting some of my projects done!! What are you going to use the number magnets for? I have a ton of those glass marbles leftover from my wedding and have been wanting to use them towards something fun!!

    Lessons with Laughter

  28. Here is what I'm doing with my glass bubbles. I'm making them with numbers like you did. However, I am printing them on magnetic paper to glue on instead of attaching a separate magnet. My plan is to have a daily puzzle station like the tiling puzzles I've seen on Raki's Rad blog. I'll have either 4 or 6 cookie sheet magnetic boards to make the station so it is cheap too! Once my students get familiar with solving the puzzles, I'll have them start creating them for me!

  29. So cute!! I love it all!! Could you share your highlighter can sign or let me know where you found it? I am doing a polka dot theme this year and it is EXACTLY what I have been looking for!

  30. I love your highlighter can! Do you have the copy for the cover of the jar? I would love to be able to use it. It's totally my style with the polka dots!

  31. I love the highlighter can!! Do you have a copy of the sign. I would love you use it for my polka dot classroom.


  32. I LOVE all of your ideas! Is there any way I could get a copy of the highlighter can label and the birthday balloon straws? My email addy is Thanks!

  33. FUN!!! Is there anyway I can get a copy of the highlighter can label?
