Teacher Creativity Blog Hop

It's no secret that I *love* to craft… so when Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores contacted me to take part in their #teachercreativity blog hop, I jumped at the chance!

My little projects all center around teacher's new best friend:  Washi Tape!  I picked up some chevron tape in my classroom colors: pink, blue, and an orangey-yellow {I also have green in my room, but skipped it this time}.  I had so much fun putting the tape on… everything!  It's so easy to use, because you can reposition it 'til you get it just right.

First, I dressed up some clothespins!  I'm super excited about these-- they are so much better than plain clothespins!  I switched out the boring pins on my hallway display for the new and improved Washi version. :)

Next, I added a little detail to my bright pink 3-drawer container!  I bought this container from Jo-Ann over the summer… isn't it so pretty?  Never mind that it's empty. ;) 

Then I taped up a wooden letter P {for my last initial}, and set it out on my desk.

And last but not least… I prettied up some paint cans! :)  I added a Washi border to the top and bottom rims of the cans.  I used a scallop punch on some chalkboard vinyl to make the labels on the tops of the cans.  Aaaand I attached the little lid openers to the can handles with some pretty, matching ribbon!  Now I just have to fill them!

Thanks for getting me hooked on Washi tape (although I went to my local Jo-Ann this morning, and they had never heard of Washi!)...I'll be making those adorable clothespins this afternoon!

Hi! Love all the cute ideas!
Do you take those pictures of your classroom on your phone or a camera or Instragram? If from Instagram how do you get them into a post? Also, how do you add in your logo "a cupcake for a teacher" on the photo? Thanks in advance for your time!
Love to Teach A-Latte
