Teacher Tool Box: Monday Made It!

My Monday Made It has definitely kicked into overdrive as I prepare for this coming year. I go back on Friday! Agh! Where did my summer go??? So, let's not waste anymore of it, shall we?

Last Monday, I periscoped how to make seat crates. I had posted a picture of my teacher tool box prior to that and had been asked how I made it. Well, like the seat crates, it was really a lot easier than I thought it would be, and I could customize it exactly how I wanted. So, I thought I would do the same thing with my tool box. If you missed the periscope, you can still catch it until tomorrow morning. I couldn't seem to get the video to transfer, so I made a screen shot video that explains how to make your own labels. You can check it out below.

Last year I bought an acrylic pencil dispenser, and it was a DISASTER. The knobs came off and it ended up cracking. So, I decided to go back to the tried and true pencil cups. I made the labels on my Silhouette Cameo. (Sorry for the dark picture!)

I also made some label for my supply buckets. I made them the exact way I would make them for my teacher toolbox, only with different dimensions.

My classroom is really starting to come together, and I can't wait to see the finished product! Stay tuned!


  1. All your projects are so cute!! I love those little buckets. I seriously need to invest in a cameo this year!

    1. Thank you! I use my Silhouette ALL THE TIME. I love it!
