December 2011 Bulletin Boards

Here are two December bulletin boards I made for my classroom. They are both used for positive motivation. One is where they hang up their amazing work and when they get 12 papers then they get to pick out of the prize box. The other one is a sticker reward chart. Once they get a row filled they get to choose out of the prize box. What great motivations that they are!

Frosty the Snowman Tree

Here is our classroom tree. We have a snowman theme going on and saw this idea on Pinterest. I made the frosty head from black felt and white material left over from the stockings I made this year. Also the boots were made out of black felt. Isn't he CUTE??

Hand Soap Personalized

I made these for a great group of ladies who provided an awesome Christmas Luncheon for my students. They have done this for well over 35 years and we are so grateful for their generosity.
These have a snowman inside them with the saying: Snowmany Thanks. These were stamped on transparency sheets with Stazon ink using Peachy Keen stamps. First I stamped them on the 'rougher" side but that was a BIG mistake even though it says to print on that side. When I put them inside the bottles the ink smeared. I had to empty out the bottles and refill them with new hand soap. What a bubbly mess! lol I found you MUST stamp it on the shiny smooth side. Then it won't smear once placed inside the bottle. Oh yes, you must remove the sticker from the outside and use goo begone to remove the sticky gunk.

I made two with black dogs and one with a frog for other special people. It is so easy and makes a very small gift to show your appreciation for all they give. You can put anything on it. Just roll up the transparency and slide it inside the bottle. Use the pump stick to get it into place. I love how they turned out. I made a total of 15.

Monogram Tiles

Here are some tiles I saw on Pinterest. I made two of them for wedding presents for coworkers and two for Christmas presents. I love how they turned out. I give the credit to Paper Pastime. Check out her blog. She has some awesome ideas and great tutorials, too.
I used the regal font for the monogram letter. I cut it out of black vinyl and put it on a 12 x 12 floor tile found at Lowes. Or is you are lucky enough like me and have great friends who have left over tiles that they "donated" to my crafting business. They are easy to do. I coated them with modge podge and a clear shellac.
