Here are my resource binders. These will be so handy for organizing important documents this year! Making these binders cost $0.00! I already had the binders and the easy reference tabs.
|I also included easy-reference tabs on each of these.|
My final (I hope) DIY project is my chevron valances. I LOVE these! They go so well in my classroom. I bought the fabric on sale at Hobby Lobby. It took 3.25 yards and I was able to make 4 valances (I only need three for my classroom). Then I purchased fabric glue and curtain rods. The total amount for this project was right around $25.00! I'm going to call that pretty good for 4 valances. I looked online and to buy chevron valances costs about $20 a piece! That would total $80 for what I only paid $25 for! Yay for saving money!
To make these, I cut the fabric the size I want it. Then I started on the narrow ends, using the pattern, and pinned down what I called a hem. I ironed over the pins to get a nice crisp fold. Then i sparingly used my handy fabric glue and glued the hem down. I did this to three sides on each valance. The final hem had to be wide enough for the curtain rods to fit through. Once again, I used the fabric pattern as my measurement. This ensure a straight edge (just in case I cut crooked). Here are pictures of the final product all hung up!
