Made it Monday Linky Party and a Freebie!

I am linking up with 4th Grade Frolics to share a project that I completed today.


1.  I got these cute pencil holders from The Container Store.  They were on sale and they matched the colors of my classroom.  I am going to be putting these at tables this year so that when a child breaks their pencil, they don't have to get up and go get a new one.   They can place the broken one in the holder and grab a new one.

2.  I loved colors but wanted to add something to it.  So I created some labels.  I trimmed them up so they would fit on the pencil holder.


 3.  I found some tape that matched the colors of my classroom and wrapped it around the middle of the box.


4.  I have never worked with Mod Podge before and googled how to use it.  I laminate everything in my classroom, but after a few weeks the labels seems to fall off get pulled off things that I attach it to.  After researching MP...I figured I'd try it.

5.  I attached the labels to the box with MP.  I still have to work on the technique a little bit.  This one looks like it has a couple little wrinkles, but overall I really like them.


6.  They are waiting to dry right now.  Once dry I will apply another layer.  I will then apply the sealer (that I didn't know I would need and have to go buy).

 I am including the labels here as a freebie.  You can grab them here.  Enjoy!
