Monday Made It--A Week Late!

 I had every intention in linking up with 4th Grade Frolics last Monday for "Monday Made It", but--alas--life got in the way!  This month I have made SO many things for TpT and for my classroom, but I thought I'd share a quick and easy "I have a problem that needs solvin'" project.  I am a scrapbooker AND a teacher which means I have PAPER EVERYWHERE.  I often have strips of paper left from trimming down photos and/or preparing class projects, and it always seems like such a shame to throw them in the recycling bin.  My students are constantly using their valuable sticky notes as bookmarks, so I put the two together and . . .

I found this cute little bucket in the Dollar Spot at a local establishment that should have a parking spot reserved for me.  Just a suggestion...  I then dabbled around making a sign on my computer and printed it off.
I mounted the sign on cardstock and then lined up my bucket so I knew how big to cut it.
I love my laminator!
I tested it out to find where the holes in the bucket were... these little guys could hold it all together!

Ta da!  That's it!

I know it isn't very fancy or spectacular, but it's solving a few problems and I think my students will like it!  Have a great week, everyone!  Stop by and check out the other great "Made It's" as well--the link is at the top of this post!


  1. Oooohhhh... so simple, but such a good idea! Would you be willing to share the sign? I have a bookmark basket that needs it. :)

  2. I am also a scrapbooker and teacher. Love this idea...I would love your sign if you are sharing. TIA
