Now, for Monday Made It(s)- I've been busy this week! I have other projects too that will be finished next week (hopefully) but because they're not done, they won't be here tonight.
Monday Made It # 1 Letter Storage
File box from Target (came with 5 hanging files)
28 file folders
26 tab dividers
letters from Dollar Tree
It's hard to see, but in each hanging file folder is a file folder with the uppercase letter printed on it, and a divider (inside the regular file folder) with a lowercase letter printed on it. I put lowercase letters in front of the divider and uppercase letters behind the divider, but still inside of the regular file folder. If I need a letter, I just pull out the hanging file and take what I need.
For my nicer letters (not from the Dollar Tree or made by me from laminated construction paper), I will put them in photo albums. Stay tuned for that MMI!
MMI #2 Crate Seats!!
I have been seeing these beauties everywhere and finally had to make my own. I only show one finished product because they took awhile to finish so I only got through one (started late).
You need: (in picture)
crate seats (mine are from target: two teal, two purplish pink, two white) all for like $3!!
foam pads (mine are from Walmart. They were super thin, so we had to add another piece of foam to them which made them very tall but should be comfy for all. Even me!)
felt or fleece (to protect fabric from ragged edges of cut wood)
boards! (Home Depot cut these for free. Even helped me do the measurements! You need to take your crate with you to see how big you want them cut, and to make sure they are cut correctly!)
First, cut your felt to go around the board. Staple it to the board.
Next, cut the foam to match the size of your board (see, we had to use two!). We glued the foam pieces to each other using spray adhesive just to be sure they wouldn't shift around.
Pull the fabric around the whole contraption, fold like a present, and staple like crazy! Then, put it on top of your crate to admire your handiwork. In my case, I admired my mom's cuz
I made several other things this week but apparently didn't take pictures... so maybe I will show them next week! Who knows....
