Monday Made It- Teacher Toolbox

Since I'm completely and officially on Summer Break, I had some time to actually get around to making something and linking up with Tara for

I've been itching to make a Teacher Toolbox since I first saw it on Pinterest months ago! Rebecca at Create-Teach-Share started it all! I'm pretty late to the game since I've seen a ton of them around, but I still wanted to share! 

A couple of weeks ago I won an Amazon Gift Card from Laura at Love To Teach!  So I used my gift card to buy a toolbox!  I wanted one that was taller than most of the ones I've seen around.  I don't have a desk, so I don't have a ton of space.  I found the perfect one!  I ordered it and it arrived when I was at the beach. Here is the link to this box on Amazon! Only $13! So I spent my Sunday evening watching True Blood and making my Teacher Toolbox!

Didn't it turn out great?  It was so easy to make since Elizabeth created a template.  I filled each of the boxes using "image fill". That way it will match the polka dotted and chevron theme I'm using in my classroom this year!

I can't wait to take it to school and fill it up with all of my supplies!  That makes me such a dork, I know.  You all know that you would feel the same way though....

Hopefully I'll have time to make something new this week! Be sure to link up with Tara if you made something this week! :)
