*last* Made it of the summer

You guys... it's my last summer Made it!
{sad face}
Hopefully I can keep it up somewhat during the school year. We'll see! 
My Made It's this week were all SUPER DUPER easy! And I want to thank Miss Kindergarten for introducing me to the fabulous PAINT PEN! I haven't used one since a project in 7th grade maybe?! I faintly remember having dramatic issues with them bleeding and causing large messes all. over. the. place. BUT! I've grown up! haha It seems like I can handle one now!

Did you see Hadar's post last week?? These super cute apples?!

I made some for my teammates as back-to-school gifts. And the best part?! Those little wood apples are only 99 cents from Hobby Lobby - I'm sure if you can catch them on sale they would only be 50 cents! So my total investment? $5 and maaaybe 20 minutes. Yep. that's all! Those little paint pens take no time at all to dry!
 Aren't they cute?!

While I was at it with the paint pen, I made a few more things:
I found these little "bags" at Michael's for a dollar each.
 {I'm going to hang this by the door and bingo board}
{Box top collector!}
{and a little tub for my sight word chant sticks from Kathleen at Growing Kinders - they are AWESOME!}

Here's a little sneak of the pennant banners I made:
As soon as I get them up in my room I will have a better picture! If you want to snag some for yourself, check them out HERE for free!

Happy Monday friends!

    BTW, I adore your blog!!!

    1. Go to Michaels if you have one. They have their own brand (Craft Smart) which are cheaper. If you are looking for a set of the paint pens with multiple colors, then that sounds about right. It's a great item to use with a coupon!

  5. Everything is so cute! I forgot about boxtops, I better make something for them too :-)


  6. Looks like you went out with a bang! You got tons done this week. :)
