Creative Teacher Giveaway

Has anyone else been busy preparing projects for their classroom?  I've been to my school several times and I have a few things in progress.  I'm super excited though, because I've joined up with a bunch of other awesome blogger friends to show our readers how to make crafts and we are giving some away too! 

I decided to make a Teacher To Do List.  Why? Because who doesn't have a To Do List? I am constantly writing mine on a sticky note and they get lost or are all over the place.  I was browsing Pinterest and came across this pin:

My Teacher To Do Frame.  It's simply a document a made, cut to fit and put in an 8 x 10 picture frame.  You simply use a dry erase marker to write down your To Dos. Check them off and erase when you need write new ones.  Sit it on your desk or guided reading table and you won't forget those copies, plans, etc. any more!

I thought this was super cute and a great idea, so I got to work on mine! 

First, I created my Teacher To Do List using Power Point.  Then I printed it out on white card stock paper.

Next I placed it inside an 8x10 picture frame I purchased at Walmart for around $3.

The next step for me was to tie a bow from polka dot ribbon.  If you don't know me...I love some polka dots! I also love all things girly :)  I also got this at Walmart.  You need Grosgain ribbon rather than the silky ribbon so that the bow will hold.

Then you are going to hot glue the bow on to the corner of the frame.  I just bought this awesome cordless hot glue gun.  Yes, it's worth the extra money...GO GET ONE!! 

This bow might or might not have taken me 15 minutes to tie...seriously! 

To write on the To Do List, you are going to need a Dry Erase Marker.  I'm not big on looking for things, so I need it to be handy.  

Hot glue a pom pom on your marker so you have an instant eraser.

Then add velcro to the marker and the back of the frame so that the marker is "hidden," but handy.

And when you're finished, this is what it looks like! You can write on it with the dry erase marker and simply erase with your pom pom.  Each time you complete a task, you just check it off.  

This is a great way to stay organized and on top of things for the new school year and seriously, I'm all about that!
