Monday Made It

I decided to make the Teacher Toolbox today :) 
1. Spray paint your box without the drawers in.

2. Print, laminate, cut, and hot glue the tab labels from Ladybug's Teacher Files. Click here to download her free tabs.
When you finish gluing the labels on it should look similar to this.
3. Now if you want to put paper inside the drawers so you can't see inside  you can download the blank template here
For some reason I could not make it free, so just download the "PREVIEW", edit and save. That way you don't have to spend a penny :)

4. After you print out your template onto colored paper or scrapbook paper, cut it all out and tape it into the drawers.

After you are all finished it will look like this :) 
I used the PPT blank form and added chevron to 1 large drawer and 1 small drawer, then copied and pasted. I also rearranged the template so that 1/2 would print on purple cardstock and 1/2 would print on turquoise cardstock.
