It's Monday Made It with 4th Grade Frolics! YIPPEE!! After last week, I was on FCP (full-craft-patrol) and I think my favorite idea were the magnets made from scrapbook paper and the gems that go in vases and the glittered clothespins. How adorable and EASY PEASY! I
First things first- find some cute paper, I used a variety of patterns and bright colors to match my classroom theme. I found the gems at my local Dollar Tree and they are the large ones! They were big enough to use a 1 inch circle punch for the paper to glue on the backs perfectly. I love when things work out :) Then, all you have to do is paint a little Mod Podge on the flat side of the gem and then on the colored side of the paper. Next, place the paper on the gem colored side down against the flat side. Paint a little more Mod Podge over the back and wait for it to dry! Glue a magnet on the back and next thing you know you've got a set of customized magnets! :) Hooray for simple, cheap, and quick crafts!
Bags of gems- both literally and figuratively! :)
Perfect 1" circles from a variety of papers!
Mod Podge mess! :)
Dry them before applying the magnets!
And here they are! LOVE them!
I love my little whooty-whoos! :)
This one is my favorite :)
My next MMI (short for Monday Made It) were the ever-popular glitter clothespins! I've seen these all over Pinterest and other teacher blogs (Tara over at 4th Grade Frolics inspired me!), since glitter should be my middle name- I decided to give it a go! I'm such a perfectionist though, so these took me a little longer than it probably would for most people :) I had to be sure the glitter was JUST perfect on both sides. My mom sat there and laughed at me- when I asked her for help, she said "NO WAY" because they wouldn't be perfect like I wanted them… Oh geez, am I truly THAT bad?! ;) hahaha...
Check them out! I absolutely LOVE the bright colors that I chose!
