Monday Made It: The Toolbox and Objectives

Hello everyone! I am excited to link up for Monday Made It.


I had a crazy weekend, but I finally decided to make the teacher toolbox.  I bought the Stack-On organizer from Hope Depot and made by labels. 
I just need to print them out  and put them in the toolbox.  I need more ink. These are my labels below.  I have purchased so much clipart and digital papers that I am having fun playing with them. I am going to leave the toolbox gray.  I think the gray will go nice with the colors and patterns I chose for the labels. The digital papers and frames are from Lilly Bimble, Aesthetic Addiction, and Jessica Weible.




I am having a hard time determining if all the places I got the graphics will let me share them in freebies, so I have just uploaded them to my store for $1.50. You can get the labels at my TpT store as a pdf file with the way I have them labeled for $1.50 or as an editable file in Powerpoint for $2.00

I also made some Objectives signs now that I know I am going to be teaching.   I just need to pick up some frames and print them out (once again once I purchase some more ink).







If you like the objectives signs, you can get them at my TpT store for $1.50.

What do you think?  I love all things blue and green.  Green is my happy color.

    1. I purposely bought digital papes that would look good with gray. I'm not really a spray paint person. I knew I needed the blues and greens - basically similar colors to my blog design.

  7. We are required to write our objectives on the board everyday. I try to refer to them often, but I don't think they mean anything to my students. How do you post/share them with your students? It may be a good idea to have my kids jot them down!

    1. I never was great at it either. That's why I like the idea of the objectives signs. Maybe if more visually appealing, they will notice it more? I think having them write it down would be good.

    2. I am right there with you! I am using a Pinterest idea, but tweaking it. I printed up the I Can statements from Laura Candler (I think) and I am going to get picture frames to put the I CAN statements in the frames. I hope to train my 3rd graders to take over the I CAN job after a couple weeks. I have seen people put the papers in frames (Like you made, April) and then each day they write on the glass with an Expo. I just worry I will forget to write them. Thus, the pre-printed statements that I can just keep in sheetprotectors. I am soooo new to Pinterest, I am just shopping and window shopping at this point. I wish I know how to post some of my projects I have been inspired to make. I am already working in my classroom, setting it up for my new grade level at my new school. (yikes)

    1. I still need to attach them. I am just going to use tape so I have the option to change colors later if I want. I will show pictures when I am done.

  9. I really like your objectives! I mean, I am really picky when it comes to colors in my room...these are perfect! I think I may just have to buy them:)

    1. What is the name of the paper you used? I am trying to find it on her blog!

    2. Most of them are Lilly Bimble - the paisley and the aqua damask. The frames and the papers with gray in them are Aesthetic Addiction. The colorful checks and flowers and green gingham are the Baby Bumbles set by Jessica Weible.

    3. April, I also want to thank you for the amazing choice of labels decor! I am going with a Camping Ground theme, so the rustic "fabric" looking labels are adorable and perfect for my class! I hope to laminate them and then use mounting tape so that they stay on. But I also like velcro circles if I want to switch around my labels, I can just move the signs to a different velcro circle! Thanks again, for all of your great (and totally adorable) work!

  14. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you! I saw this idea forever ago, but the labels available weren't the same I needed. I was dragging my feet to make my own! This will save me so much time! Thank you!!!!!!
