I am so excited to be linking up with Tara for Monday Made It today and for the next few weeks…I have all kinds of awesome things coming in the mail and I can’t wait to share some of the projects I am working on!
I made some oval labels for my classroom library with my lovely, brand new oval-cutter!!
Can you believe they make these?
I really had no idea ’til I googled it on a whim.
You already know how crazy I am about my circle cutter, right? I know I’ve been going on about it for years on here. Well this tool is just as amazing! It’s by EK Success and there is an Ovals Template and a Cutting Tool. It makes such a professional-looking cut and the labels look SO much better than when I hand-cut them!
Look how ovally…
Besides making such a nice cut, it also saves my hand from a lot of pain and numbness.
As you might guess from the pictures above I also have some brand new library bins. I took a huge step out of my clear-library-bin-comfort-zone (that’s the only kind I’ve ever had in all my years of teaching) and went with bright stacking bins from Really Good Stuff.
It’s amazing how much color they add to the room! They also give me an excuse to make new labels (I love having a reason to do that!)
Which brings me to some other news (I feel like I’m writing this post backwards, I’m sorry)…I went into my classroom today! We’ve only been out a couple of weeks but my room is already finished so I stopped by with my new bins and oval cutter. It’s been extremely hot and humid this summer so I thought a bit of work at a time might be better.
Did you make something this Monday? I’m off to check out all the projects right now!
