Classroom Cuteness and a Freebie!

I have been up late the last few nights in an attempt to revamp my classroom. I have accomplished a ton, but there is still a ton to do and only 15 days until the first day of school!
First up are my new office passes. Up until now, I have been using what the office provided for me, two yellow index cards with "2b" written on them. They were laminated, but beyond that they were gross. This is what I came up with:
I purchased ticket shaped wooden cutout intended as pieces of a shape scrapbook. I then decoupaged them, got to work in Photoshop, and even added some bling! It is hard to tell from the picture, but the printed piece is actually laminated and attached using adhesive and contrasting fabric tape. They are double sided too! I LOVE them!

Next up, are my student number sticks. Since I use these regularly, they needed to be cute. To create these, I merged a few flower shapes in Photoshop, added the number (applebutter is the font), laminated them, and glued them to colorful tongue depressors. I can't wait to give these a try!

Last up for tonight are my library labels.
Again, I created the file in Photoshop (are you sensing my obsession yet?), put my color coded leveling codes at the top, added the information for the labels that I needed, and laminated them. I then connected them to my book bins using a combination of key rings and hot glue. They look AMAZING in my library.
I also created a file so that you could create your very own. Click on the picture below to download them. If you do download them, please leave me a message. What can I say, I am a sucker for gratitude!
Hugs, peace, and chicken grease,
