If you’re looking for a ridiculously easy, yet nice back to school teacher gift, then this is definitely a post for you! As part of the Elmer’s Bag It Forward campaign, I recently donated a bunch of extra supplies to Big Brother’s first grade teachers. Last year I put all the extra supplies in a big file crate. But, I thought a cute tote that his teacher could keep would be especially cute. So, I made a super easy chalkboard teacher tote! Cute, right?! The best part is that you can seriously do this in 5 minutes with just 4 simple supplies!
- tote bag (plain or small logo you can cover is best)
- Martha Stewart Chalkboard Labels
- glue stick
The label was the absolute perfect size! I used a heavy-duty glue stick to help stick the label down and help make sure it stays attached. And, really, that’s it! Anyone can do this project! Once the label is stuck down, then you can write whatever you like on it! Since Big Brother is in first grade and we were donating supplies to his school, I wrote the little “1st grade teachers” line on there. But, the beauty of a chalkboard tote is that you can do whatever you like with it! So fun! 🙂
Have you done any projects with chalkboard labels or paint?
Disclosure: I received a free product sample of the Martha Stewart office products from Staples. However, project idea, opinions, and experiences are entirely my own.
How COOL are these! You could do tons with them. I love the idea of making a bag for the teacher what a great way to start out the new year! 🙂
This is super cute!! I need some of those labels in my life!!
Those labels look great! I can think of tons of places I could use them! I love your idea with the tote bag – you can never have enough of those!
These labels are awesome and I love the way you used them!
