Monday Made It 7/21

Time to link up for Monday Made It! I was not as busy this week as last week.

I found a shelf on the side of the road! Here is the before and after, just need the things to hold the shelf up.

I wanted a way to store my white boards that are for small group time. I tried finding a bin, but didn't find any that were the right color and size. Then I spotted the white boards at the Dollar Tree in their cardboard holder. Took it home and used spray paint. (I forgot to take a before picture but you'll know it when you see it in the Dollar Tree)

I was so excited when I was in the DOllar Tree and saw they has the Dry-Erase pockets!! Downside: horrible color choices. 

So using Scotch Masking tape, clearance at Target, I did this:

 Side by side comparison:

Not exactly a crafty made-it, but I did make them. Since June I have been making sure I print off and laminate all sorts of stuff for my kids. This week I finally finished printing, first cut, laminate everything! Still need to finish cutting my 300+ laminated pages, but I am getting there!

    1. I almost died when I saw them! I have about 5 Dollar Trees around me, but only two had them. I bought all but one.

  2. I cleared out my local Dollar Tree too in order to get a class set of those dry erase pockets. I hate the colors though! Thank you for the tip of using masking tape....this is definitely on my to-do list.

    1. I don't know who decided on the colors! They should have talked to a teacher! I've only done the yellow because I hate yellow so much, next will be the red, and I can deal with the blue if needed.

  3. My town only has one.. Still looking for the pockets. Maybe someday.

    1. I am so sorry! I grew up in a town like that and probably one of the best parts of moving to NC is the number of stores that are a very short drive.
