I completed my first summer project :)
We have a new little furniture store that opened up close to where my daughter takes dance. They had these ADORABLE boxes that had "This" "and" "That" labels. Unfortunately, they were $35. Before I bought them, I'd thought I'd see if I could make some.
I went to Michael's today and found three photo boxes (similar colors, different patterns) for $1.42 each. Then I found some thicker paper for 59 cents to use for the labels.
I made labels on the computer, and voila...I had my boxes!!!! The labels measure 2.5 inches across and are 1 inch tall.
These boxes are so versatile!
They are storing DVDS, my children's markers/crayons/twistables, and CDs.
In a classroom, they could be used to store art supplies, scraps of paper, and even guided reading books! For the classroom, I would have the labels say exactly what was inside of the box, otherwise I'd go a little crazy trying to find what I needed :)
