Monday Made It

Happy Monday! If you are like me today is your first day of school. That doesn't mean that the craftiness has stopped and will stop anytime soon. I feel like I am more creative during the school year since there is so much that needs to get done.
My first Made It is custom borders. Yesterday I made a post all about bulletin boards in my classroom. My big tip was to ditch the butcher paper and focus on your borders. I like to use simple borders and use colors to add accents to my wall. Sometimes it's hard to find the right color or even when you do find the right color you run out!! Well I have a solution to that.


I also have a video on how I made these borders if you want to try it out for yourself. 


My second Made It is my teacher toolbox. A couple years ago I made a forest themed toolbox that matched my classroom perfectly. It no longer matched my classroom so I finally got around to updating it!!
I have both a premade version and an editable version that are available in my TpT store if you want to use them too!!

Make sure to head on over to Tara's blog to share your Monday Made Its and check out everyone else's.

  2. You are so lucky we never worked together, I'd be asking you to make borders and stuff for me all the time! Ha. Reminds me...I want a new update on your craft room! I need to rearrange mine..again because I received over 100 skeins of yarn after my great grandma passed, so now need more room. Crafter problem.

    1. I would have loved to work with you!! I need to downsize my craft room and then hopefully organize it better.

  3. This is great! There have been so many times when I needed a thicker border but didn't want to double up!

  4. My mother-in-law used to make her own border but I never thought about crimping it! Super cute!
