I was at Michael's the other day and saw these owls and I instantly knew I had to make these! I like using sticks to call on students...I started this a few years ago. I wanted to make sure I was calling on all of my students and using the sticks ensures that! I've always just used plain popsicle sticks or the jumbo popsicle sticks (tounge depressors), written the students' names on them, put them in a can, and that was that. BUT, when I saw these owls...I knew I had to use them to cutesify (is that a word??!) the name sticks!!!
|It all started here...|
|Found some cute paper!|
|Jumbo popsicle sticks...|
|Traced the popsicle sticks on the back of the scrapbook paper...|
|Paint Mod Podge onto the stick, add the paper, paint the paper, repeat on the back...|
What do you think?! I just think my students are going to LOVE them! I am going to let the students pick which owl they want! :)
I have been thinking about the next project all summer...At first, I thought I would make them using scrapbook paper and Mod Podge. BUT, then, I kept hearing about Washi Tape on Instagram, so I had to check this stuff out!!! I am so glad I did! It is pure AWESOMENESS and it made my project a million, billion times easier! Have you tried using Washi Tape yet? You should! I found mine at Michaels!
The last project I am sharing with you is all over Pinterest! I have a few of them pinned...and decided to bring my clipboards home this summer to work on this projcect..Here are just a couple that I have made...
Of course I used Mod Podge for these!!! When don't I?! LOL! Are you beginning to see my obsession with Mod Podge?! I literally look at stuff and think, "Hmmmmm, can I Mod Podge this?!!!"
So, for these clipboards...I started with a clipboard, traced the paper to fit, spread Mod Podge on the clipboard, added the paper, and then spread Mod Podge over the top of the paper, making sure to smooth it out...LOVE them! Way better than just the brown ones! I haven't added paper to the back yet...still not sure if I'm going to. Probably.
