Monday Made It #6: Vista Print Creations

This past week has been crazy!  My family came into town and we did the whole tourist thing: Disney, Sea World, the works!  It was so much fun to see them again but I definitely did not get a classroom "craft" done per se.  I did however get some Vistaprint creations done and in the mail today and I am very excited.  So this week's Monday Made It with Tara from 4th Grade Frolics is a digital classroom craft.

I created three new Vistaprint creations: 2012-2013 Sunshine State Feast Invitation (50 rack cards), Math Reference card (100 regular size postcard), and Classroom Rules banner (small vinyl banner).

Sunshine State Feast Invitation 2012-2013
Every student who reads all 15 Sunshine State Books will receive this special invitation to our Sunshine State Feast.  I plan on writing their name on the blank space under "That's a Wrap" in silver permanent marker.

Math Reference Sheet
I will be putting these in my math area by the TIMER Tubs so the students can always grab one to refer to when they are stuck.  I was nervous that the font would be too small and unreadable but it turned out perfect!  I snagged the front side from Ms. Sanchez's website (she's got great downloads!) and the back from the Utah Government website.

Classroom Rules
I've been seeing these types of subway signs all over the place, including my home for house rules, and I wanted to create one for our class.  I used Print Shop to create the sign and saved it as a PDF, then uploaded it onto Vistaprint and made a vinyl banner.  As you can tell there is some extra space on the actual banner but it is still larger than I imagined (it took up about half of my coffee table).  I'm going to frame it using yard sticks tomorrow.  I'm already thrilled with how it will look and it's not even done yet!  If you want a copy, head on over to my TPT store!

Do you want to know the best part of this DIY?  It was free!!!!!  That's right, Vistaprint was having this amazing sale and I only had to pay for shipping :o)  Can't beat that!

  8. Is there a place to download your rules chart? :) Or do I have to recreate it myself. I love the no whining part. Priceless.

  9. Lol, thank you! You should be able to just click on it and it will take you to a Google Doc that you can download. Let me know if that doesn't work and I can email it to you :o)
