Made It Monday!


I was afraid I would not have anything ready this week to link up with Tara over at 4th Grade Frolics, but alas I was able to come up with something.  I stopped at Home depot today to pick up a class set of those cute (NOT!) functional aprons (77 cents!) to use as book bags for my kiddos.  I loved the idea, but I was so not lovin' the HD logo smack dab in the middle.  What to do?  What to do?

Well...
I purchased this super cute scrapbook kit from Just So Scrappy Too, which matches the color theme I want to use for my classroom
and I have been trying to figure out what I wanted to do first.
I decided to make some labels to cover up that logo (about 4" square.)

I laminated them and then used Velcro dots to secure them to the aprons.
That way, I can reuse (and wash) the aprons every year and still have them personalized for the kids.
I stuck 2 loop sides (the fuzzy side) on the corners of the tag, 
and then put the hook side directly on top of the loop side with the sticky side up.
Next, I placed the label where I wanted it on the apron to cover the HD logo.  Now the velcro dots are in just the right spot to match up with the lable.
Much better, I think, don't you?

Now on to Manic Monday from Classroom Freebies...

These are the Table Group Labels that I made to go on the supply bins for each table.


You can get the Power Point Version here so you can edit to fit your needs.

And finally for today...
I have made Parent Information Night (Back-to-School) Power Points to match most of my classroom themes.
These are all available in my TPT and TN stores.










I am very excited about the AZ Bloggy Meet-Up tomorrow?
Will YOU be there?
I hope so!

  4. Love this idea---I just finished picking up aprons at Hobby Lobby and had planned to do some stamping on them. Love what you did with the kids' names. Is that something that's available from your site? Have a wonderful evening and thanks for sharing your idea :)

  12. so cute!! Thanks for sharing. I am gonna miss the meet-up tomorrow. Last time it was my truck and this time it is my husband's car. His radiator broke or something. I don't know... I do know it is no longer in the car so he has been driving my truck. Which means that I am stuck at home 1 1/2 hours from the cheese factory. =(
