I have been quietly working away on things for my classroom and thought I would start sharing some of the things I have made or will be making. I have been a big blog stalker for years and Made it Monday has always been one of my favorites. I have to say that most of what I make I find on Pinterest so it won't be an original idea.
Every year I take a picture of my students on the 1st day of school. Last year I made a prop for them to hold. I went with a K for Kindergarten but also for my last name. In fact, my husband was mad when I took it from home. He thought I had made it for the house.
It's cute but, I wasn't thrilled with how the pictures turned out. So I decided to make a picture frame for my cubs to hold. Simple and easy. I bought the "frame" at Hobby Lobby. It really isn't a frame. It's a mat that goes inside the frame. But I felt it would be easier for my cubs to hold. I already had the letters. I keep them in a 3x5 photo album with top loading pockets (Walmart - $1.50)
Letters (I already had from another project)
Total Cost: $2.50
Finished product! I think it is really cute.
So that's my first Made it Monday!
