Monday Made It!

Happy Monday everyone!  I can't believe it is already July 8th.  Where did June go?!?!  I am linking up with 4th Grade Frolics for her wonderful Monday Made It linky party!!
I have been trying to keep my mind off of school and focused on summer vacation but we all know that is nearly impossible!  One of my goals for this summer was to make birthday boxes!  A few of the ladies I work with have used these in the past and I LOVE them!  I think they are adorable and wanted them for my own classroom.  I had a birthday poster set that I bought but I wasn't crazy over it and am on a mission to glamorize my classroom!
I went to Hobby Lobby (one of my favorite places) and was able to get almost everything I needed.  They only had 8 boxes instead of 12 but I was happy to at least get a few so I could start my project!
This is what I needed to buy:
1. 12 Small gift boxes
2. 12 different pieces of scrapbook paper for each month
3. 12 Bows

I also needed...
1. Scissors 
2. Tape

Thats all I needed to make these super cute birthday boxes.  I plan on hanging them up in my classroom and adding chevron cupcakes to all the different boxes with my students names and their birthdays on them!  I will also need to put the name of each month on or above the boxes but I haven't decided exactly how I am going to label them yet! 

Here is a look at how they came out...

This weekend I also made Number Line Banners that I will hang in my classroom.  Each year we keep track of how many days we have been in school by making a growing number line.  The past few years I have used post-it notes and allowed my calendar helper to write the number and stick the post-it on the number line.  This year I wanted to use a number line that looked like a banner and matched my chevron theme.  I made three different options that I have posted to my TPT store!  I am so excited to watch this cute number line banner grow rather then the post-it notes this upcoming school year!
Here is a peek at what the banners look like :)

I can't wait to see what everyone else has been making!  I always love looking at everyones blogs during this time of year because I get to see all of the cute things being made for everyones classrooms!!  
Make sure to head on over to 4th Grade Frolics to check out all of the other Monday Made It!!
