Monday Made It!

I'm excited to be able to link up with Tara from 4th Grade Frolics for her Monday Made It linky party! I have just a few things to share with you...majority of which are ideas I have copied from other Monday Made It linkups!
First up is a name stick holder. I got this idea from Fifth in the Middle. I have always used popsicle sticks with student names for various activities throughout the day. In the past I have just kept them in a Ziploc bag, so the idea to make a holder for them caught my eye! The holder has two spots so you can keep track of the names you have already used. You take a stick out of one side, then place it into the side with the lid. When you are out of sticks, switch the lid to the other side and start over.
I used Crystal Light containers,  Modge Podged on some scrapbook paper, added some decorative tape, and cut a whole in the lid.
Next up is a back to school gift idea that I got from Paper Wings. Who doesn't love sticky notes?! For this project, I bought some clear frames from the Dollar Tree and then used scrapbooking supplies to decorate. I hot glued a sticky note pad onto it and viola!
Lastly, I have a simple home project that I made. I filled some glass Ball jars with forsythia branches that I bought from Jeffery Alans and some boxwood branches that I cut from one of my bushes!
What have you been up to? Link up with Tara at 4th Grade Frolics!

  6. Love your cute blog & the idea of using bell jars for vases. Very vintage chic! I use them as my water glasses, but I'll have to put flowers in some as well! Thanks for the idea.

  7. I love the idea of having two containers for number sticks. I always put them back in the same container. Your way would even out the opportunities a little more. Thank you! I'm officially a follower!

  9. I love your projects! I never thought of having two containers for the name sticks! I always put them to the side and put them back in when we are done! I might have to try the Post-it frames!:)

    Love the container for the sticks. I've been keeping my in a baggie too and leave out the ones I've called...sometimes they disappear :(
