So, last Monday my daughter decided we needed to run to get her a new belt. This meant I would be near a Hobby Lobby, so I of course had to stop. :-) I had been wanting to create those little how do I get home tags that you see popping up all over Pinterest. I found the circles from someone's blog and can't remember who it was?!? (If it is you or you know who it is....please tell me so I can give them credit!)
While I was at Hobby Lobby, I found these cute little bags in pink, lime, purple, and turquoise in the fabric decorating area. I bought them even though I wasn't quite sure what I wanted to use them for at the time.
After looking at them for a bit, I thought they would be the perfect size to store all my materials for my guided reading groups. My little Reading A-Z books will fit perfectly in there, along with sight word cards, word work games, etc. that I will need for each group. I changed my group colors from the primary red, yellow, blue, and green to pink, purple, lime, and blue. :) Here is how they turned out!
I used puffy paint on them and then hot glued the polka dot ribbon to them to tie them in with my polka dots I am using in my room this year.
Let me know what you think!! Also, some friends of mine are coming over tomorrow for our second Pinterest day. So, I will join in with the Monday Made It and show you what else we created!
See ya soon,
