Monday Made It - 6/30/14

Today I'm linking up with Tara at 4th Grade Frolics for Monday Made It! :)
This week I decided to finally make the Pinterest inspired jewelry cork board that I have been wanting for oh so long! You see, this is what just some of my jewelry was looking like...
Like I said, this is just some. And I couldn't stand it looking like this any longer. So I got to work!
I picked out some fun metallic medallion fabric at JoAnn's and measured it to fit my cork board.
If anyone is going to try this...take it from me. Use spray adhesive and only do a little bit at a time. Start in the corners and flatten the fabric out as you go.
When you're done, organize your jewelry into groups and make sure you have your pins ready.
I bought the T-Pin 32350 on (for the necklaces & bracelets) and got the other pins (for the earrings) at JoAnn's. The pins from JoAnn's worked great because they are U shaped and will hold dangling earrings! Just stick the pins in wherever you would like and just like that, you will have organized jewelry at your fingertips!
It's more fun to pick out jewelry each morning when it looks like this!
 My second creation this week was similar to the first, but it serves as an actual cork board. I wanted to add a bit of color to my tiny office area.
 So I found a cute fabric, cut it to size, and glued it on with spray adhesive.
 I painted the outer rim of this board, but I was not patient. I was very anxious to see the completed project. P.S. - Don't try to glue your fabric on the same day that you paint. 
Here is the completed board with a few papers that I need, and some cute cards from my students. I added some yarn around the edge just for fun.
Lastly, I created this pretty teal background for my new MacBook Pro! Oh how I love my new laptop! This little addition helps me organize all my files and reminds me to concentrate on what is MOST important in my life.
This is a freebie at my TpT store. Stop by and check it out! I'd love some feedback! Thanks a bunch! :)
And that's all for now! Thanks for stopping by. Be sure to link up with other teachers to see some more creative ideas!

  2. I am going to have to make a jewelry board for myself!!! We're thinking about moving... so I will wait and see if that happens, and if it does that will be one of the first things I make for myself. Thanks for sharing!!

  3. Ok- I'm making one of your jewelry board! I have one just for earrings, but it's over due for a makeover. It's so cute and your directions are so helpful. I totally agree that it's more fun (and for me, more likely) to pick out jewelry in the morning when you can see it all displayed nicely.

  4. Both boards turned out great! I tries spry adhesive recently and hated it. I got it all over my fingers and it would not come off. I went back to hot gluing stuff. Next on my list is a computer background!
    Teachers Are Terrific!

  5. I love your desktop background! How helpful! I definitely could use one of those!
