Monday Made It

I am back from a wonderful week at the beach!  We had a wonderful time.  However, I didn't get to many of the projects I had in mind, but there's always this week!  I still wanted to link up with Tara over at 4th Grade Frolics.  I am loving these Monday Made It links!
Last week Katie from Dirty Hands & Lesson Plans did a guest post on Mrs. Stanford's blog about her favorite Pinterest inspired projects.  She posted a picture a cereal/snack box bookmarks that she saw over at Plum Pudding.  Something about them caught my eye so I made an entire class set!  I can just see my 4th graders saying "Ooohh, I love poptarts, I want that bookmark."  After looking at them, I should probably do something about one that saying Peanut But...they'd have a field day with that one!  Haha!  
Now, for my home of my best friends is a huge Vanderbilt fan so she asked if I can make her two Vandy plate chargers, one for her and one as a Christmas gift.  So, I used my Cricut machine and added some vinyl.  I thought it turned out cute!
Stay tuned tomorrow for some other stuff I put vinyl on for my classroom!


  1. Hi Lana,

  2. The kids are going to love them. What a great idea.

  3. Oh, Peanut But...quite the dilemma! I feel your pain on that one! You could save it for the special darling in your room that drives you crazy. You know, the one child that is NEVER absent a single time all year long?? Hmmm--I can actually think of 4 or 5 Peanut Buts that I had last year... Heehee!

  4. I love the bookmarks! So cute and a great way to recycle.
