Monday Made It! {Giveaway!}

I'm here with a Monday Made It!! WOO HOO!  I love going through all the projects that everyone posts!  This is simple, but a great little student gift for the beginning of the year.


Here was my inspiration...

Here is my creation...


I made it my own a bit, and I'm happy with the way they came out!
*I'm going to put the glow sticks in when they are already on my student's desks and they don't have to be moved anymore!  I don't' want to crack any of them!*

Here's what I did:
1.  I decided what card stock I wanted to use and used my scrapbook cutter and cut it into strips.  I put the paper the long way and cut 2 inch strips.

3.  I folded 2 inches from the bottom up.

4. I used my Mono adhesive for the sides.  It seems to be holding up well so far, but I might end up stapling them like in the pinspiration for durability.

5.  I created a star to glue on them.  I didn't make it grade specific.  Feel free to download the file here.  The font is from Lovin' Lit and the clip art is from Creative Clips.

6.  I used the Mono adhesive to glue the star on, but anything will do!

7.  I tied some ribbon around the top to add a little something.  It was just ribbon I had around my house!

Any questions, just ask! :)  

Slowly but surely, I'm getting my brain back in school mode.  In honor of my first Monday Made It, I'd love to give away any two units from my TpT store.  Enter below!!

  1. Cute bookmarks! I love making my classroom a fun colorful place, but I don't like to make it too overstimulating! I am going to make tissue paper puff balls to hang from the ceiling in my library with my Very Hungry Caterpillar!

    Hope I win!

  5. Did this last year! Kids loved it, and parents appreciated that it wasn't candy. ;)

    1. Oops..shoulda read the question first. I'll have a star filled room this year. I'm also using primary colors and black to pop. Decorating is expensive and time consuming, so I'm streamlining so that other themes can be added as accents. This year our school is "taking flight" so airplanes, hot air balloons, you name it, can all be added.
