Once again I'm joining Tara over at 4th Grade Frolics for another Monday Made It!! This week I "made" two things. I'm using the quotation marks because one I actually made the other I made using VistaPrint.
I recently found out that VistaPrint was not actually a scam. While listening to Pandora or Hulu I would always get annoyed when the VistaPrint commercials came on because...really 10 bucks for 250 business cards???? What's the catch? However, I found out there is NO catch, so I made myself some homework passes to use for next year!
Super cute right?! The owl was one of their stock images too! I love them, and I even got matching address labels that I'm going to use for my library books! I'm excited for them to arrive.
The second thing I made this week I originally saw on Pinterest. Here's the original:
And thennn I started mine earlier in the week, but I didn't think to take pictures so here's where I started this morning :)
I went to Michael's and bought a grab bag of letters, a plaque and a couple of acrylic paints to refill the ones that I had already used up. I painted the plaque white all over for a base coat and then added the dots. When the dots had dried, I noticed that the green paint that I bought was a gloss acrylic -__- so I modge podged the whole thing to make everything glossy. After I had painted the letters green, I modge podged them and used Wood Glue to secure them to the plaque.
Then this morning I painted the clothespines, modge podged them, and secured them to the plaque with wood glue and VOILA!
The end product (and my toes, oops)!!
I'm planning on hanging it up in my classroom, however I'll be in a portable this year and I'm a little unsure of how I will be fixing things to the wall. Anyway! Head on over to the party!!
