Monday Made It...Way late? Super early? Nonetheless, FUN!

So, I know it's Sunday, but I've been wanting to post these all week.  I have anther one to post tomorrow, so I figured what the heck!?  Well, I am excited to finally participate in Tara's Monday Made It.  Check out all the inspiring ideas every week!  

Then, I made this super simple ruler holder.  I just have the rulers laying in my green bins from Walmart, but they make a mess.  This was just a pringles container wrapped in scrapbook paper.  Found the idea here on pinterest!  FABULOUS!!  My husband needs to finish the other pringles container so I can make one more.  It'll be perfect!
I'm thinking of adding some black ribbon around the top.  I'm thinking I want my classroom colors to be bright colors with some black mixed in.   
Supplies:  empty pringles container, tombo adhesive, scrapbook paper!
Inspiration:  Classroom DIY blog  (i'm obsessed!!)

I also made the ever-so-popular teacher toolbox!  I got my box from Ace Hardware.  I will eventually spray paint the outside black I think.  Here's a picture of my version...I am so excited to be super organized this school year!!
Inspiration:  Create-Teach-Share
She even has a pdf of her labels.  I used them but then downloaded the font Howser to make a few more that she didn't include. I still have two empty small spaces.  I think I'm going to wait until school starts and see what I need to fill them with!!

Thanks for stopping by!  I'll be back tomorrow with another DIY-  I have a great school one, and a WAY FUN home DIY project!!  Thank you, Pinterest and Tara!!!
