Binder Covers Freebies, Washi Tape and Ribbon

Well my back to school pile continues to grow, but guess who is procrastinating going back to set up? I bought a few more things yesterday at Walmart...these cute borders were only $.97...that's a good deal!!

About 2 weeks ago I covered this composition notebook with Washi tape. It was my first project using the tape. I was surprised with how thin it is. You can easily reposition it if you make a mistake. I guess I should have somehow made the area I was going to cover white first because you can see the cover through the tape. I added a ribbon loop for a pen. The paper clips are just scraps of ribbon tied on
Then on my trip to Walmart yesterday I treated myself to a new fun clipboard. I gave it a little bit of extra cute this morning.....cuz that's how I roll.  :)

VERY inexpensive and fun!! You can find cute ribbon for less that $1 a roll! Fran Kramer from Kindergarten Crayons had very cute and clever washi tape teacher gifts on her blog. You can see her cute gift ideas here.... Kindegarten Crayons:Do-you-know-about-washi-tape?

I had a request for some extra items for the Monster Classroom Set. I'm sorry I don't have time to add all of the elements requested, but I did make 2 editable folder or binder covers. You will need to open this file in PowerPoint and then 'insert text box'. Add names using your favorite fonts and print.
You can grab a free copy on Google docs (link under the image).

I have a Monster Classroom Set for decorating and creating labels available o TPT. All of the labels in the entire set are now editable. It is 80 pages and only $4.  Editable Monster Classroom Set Here is a little preview:
Have a great day!!!

  3. These women need to get their washi on. Nancy these projects are really beautiful and I love your color choices. This would make a wonderful gift for another teacher. I love how you put these together and thanks for linking up to me. This is so much fun! Now go make one for Heidi or she will die of jealousy.
    Hugs to you,

  4. Oh my, that Monster Classroom Set is gorgeous! Laura
