Remember my Back to School writing prompts? (Thank you, Katie, for the original inspiration for prompts in a jar.) Well, I finished putting them together. Thanks to other people's Fantastic Friday Finds and lots of bargain shopping, I got what I needed to finish putting stuff together. I went to Michael's and got one of those paper trimmers 40% plus the teacher's discount. (Thank you, Tonya, for telling us about the sale.) I also found two packages of 250 sheets of card stock for $7.99.
I got some jars and containers at Dollar Tree. (I am proud of those craft caddies. Target has some for $2.50, but these were $1.00, so after like 3 Dollar Trees I found 10. I will use them for something!)
I had a Xyron from my monther-in-law I had never used. Thank you, Elizabeth, for recommending it. (The laminator function did not go very far, but I tried it out. The adhesive sheets are cool though. I made my jar label stickers this way, and am also going to redo the labels for my teacher toolbox this way. The glue dots are not sticking.)
So after printing on my speckled card stock and much cutting and more cutting. I still need to finish laminating. That is on the to-do-list for today. I also made the jar labels a little cuter. You can get them here.
I made some persuasive writing prompts, too. I intend to make some narrative ones as well. You can get my 100 persuasive writing prompts here.
I also love this idea Tara and some others have for shared writing journals. I want to pair them with my writing prompts. So I made journal covers for different kinds of writing (like persuasive, descriptive, letter writing, stories, poetry, newspaper articles, etc.) as well as topics (like sports, movies, video games, pets, music, family/friends, etc.) I will have to wait and see which ones I want to use. I made 26 covers, but I don't think I will actually have that many shared writing journals. I was trying to decide which ones I wanted. You can get them here.
