those fabulous drawers Monday Made it!

So, after Cupcake pinned this set of drawers

I literally spent the better part of an evening ignoring my family looking for the source of those beauties!
to no avail!
So, being the persistant little thing that I am, I MADE those labels! and in a few options! here's to this summer's first Monday-Made-It!!

Here's what I did {without Internet, Mod Podge, or anything else for that matter at home!}
Materials: Sterlite 3-Drawer set. These are made for the paper size {8.5x11"}
your preferred adhesive!

1. Print-I actually had to print on the back of an email I found in the kitchen at the "new house" since I have no clue where I packed our paper!
2. Cut
3. Place in your drawers and make a crease where you will need to trim {I used my nails}
4. Trim
5. Attach to the drawers {since I did not have mod podge, I used clear tape.} I WILL be redoing them most likely. We had a bad rainstorm last night and I had to carry my printed labels under my shirt while I darted madly for the car and they have a few water spots!}

download here or click a picture!

here are the options! All graphics are from Dreamlike Magic and fonts are from Kimberly Geswein
I saved these in a powerpoint so there woud not be a white border around them. I ended up trimming mine to the "point" in the frame and a tad off each side. I also cannot decide on what I want my third drawer to be labeled {I put all things that need to be graded instantly in my take home bag-it's a classroom job!}
So I hope you can use on your journey to cuteness and organization!
now go and link up with my friend Tara!

  11. I feel your pain...I tried looking for the source of the pin when you offered any item free! GOodbye, lunch period!

    Yours are so cute and you crack me up about printing on the back of what is obviously a very important paper! Saved the file as I love the lime/black combo you made. Thanks for sharing!

  12. These are awesome.
    3rd drawer could be laminate?

  20. Thanks for sharing these! I have the perfect spot for the drawers on my desk once my printer gets taken away. Love them!

  21. Love these! Thanks so much! Is there any way you could make Monday
    through Friday labels and put them in your TPT store.
    I would love to have those to match!

  22. I absolutely love that you shared the labels. Any suggestions on how to begin to create labels of my own? I'm a novice. I see such cute things on Pinterest and I want to know how to create labels and posters to use in my classroom.

  23. Thanks for sharing! I definitely need something like that since my one bin is a mix of everything :-(

  25. Love these!!!! Is there any way that you could make ones that say the days of the week?

  26. So cute!! I have been saying for years I need to do this... but I need beach them.. Maybe I can get creative and make it myself :)
    Thanks for sharing!

  27. Thank you so much! I had some labels on my drawers, but not nearly as cute as these!!!

  28. Did you have to scale these down or cut a lot off to make them fit your drawers? I used the same ones you pictured, and they're too big. Maybe I have the wrong size drawers ...

  29. Hi! I was wondering if there was anyway you could make them wider, so they can fit the sterilite containers? I use those for my units, and would love to use these as my labels! Thank you so much!

  30. Are these still available? When I click on it the page can't be found on googke docs.

  31. On the blank ones, is there any way to type in different words that what you already have?

  32. Just stumbled across your blog through MMI... thanks so much for the freebie! The zebra print labels go perfect in my new classroom. ~Cara Lee

  34. Love these. What fonts did you use? I cannot identify them. Thanks, Paula

  35. OMG! I didn't even know I needed these until I saw them!!
    Thank you for making them!

  36. Love them! Hoping I have Internet back soon so I can print!

  37. Thank you for sharing these awesome labels!

  38. Thank you for sharing these awesome labels! I hope by creating this project I'm going to be more organized. :-)

  39. Thank you so much! I can't wait to go and print these off. The colors are perfect and the blank template allows me to use it in so many ways!!! Thank you!

  40. What font did you use for the bight colored ones with the flags? Also, where do I go to download that font?

  41. Super cute!! I was overwhelmed by the paper beast last year, but I will NOT let that happen again this year!! These labels will be my first step in the right organizational direction!!
