Hahaha, as I was typing that at 5:30pm, the delivery man knocked on my door! So weird. So it is 11:59 pm EST, and I'm posting about my toolbox! Whoop Whoop!
I'm stoked with how this turned out. Again, I was looking for something bigger, but I settled with the one that everyone was doing. I think I'm going to peruse for a set of bigger drawers for bigger things. Anyone know of one?
For those of you who are looking to do this craft, just know that this organizer is probably way smaller than you think it is! It doesn't fit a pen comfortably [at least the pens and grading markers that I use] in length. Obviously, my pens don't have to be comfy, I'm just sayin' you have to put them in slanted, so you won't be able to fit as many as you may want.
Anyway, here is how mine turned out!
Is it me, or does it look like a student who is missing a few of their recently lost teeth? I couldn't decide what to label the three remaining small drawers. I'm thinking box tops [because, really, the student who brings in one.at.a.time.not.in.a.baggie is completely necessary] and spare change [for my team teachers & my inevitable daily diet coke]. But I'm not sure, so I'll figure it out later! Feel free to share any ideas in the comments! =)
Here's what I needed:
A few pieces of craft paper [not cardstock] from a huge pack from Michael's.
My friends, scissors & glue.
The precise drawer size rectangles [THANK YOU ELIZABETH!] and my text frames.
So, here's what I did! What probably took me the longest was picking out the paper I was going to use. I am SO indecisive. But I finally settled on four patterns. My craft paper was a 12x12 pack, so I printed Elizabeth's labels out on white paper and used them as tracers. Then, I printed out my text frames, which I sized by laying them over top of the labels in a word document, then deleted the rectangle.
Then, I cut out every.single.squiggly.frame. I feel like this is what Cricuts are for, but I obviously don't have one! I glued the text onto the middle of the drawer rectangle. Then,
instead of modge podge because that seemed to be too big of a commitment, I put a couple swipes of glue on the scrapbook paper and stuck it in the front of the drawer. This isn't the forever fix, but it'll do for right now! So that's how I did it! Here's a few more glamour shots. I AM NOT A PHOTOGRAPHER.
I'm telling you. Blogger and Picmonkey are NOT on my side today. They are making my computer draaaaaag!
A quick note before I go! Philip Seymour Hoffman in the next Hunger Games?! Yay! I love him! And I can totally see him in this role. This guy is so versatile. I have no doubt that he will nail this part. Also, if you read the screen shot above, you see that Jena Malone is rumored to be playing Johanna. I've searched it, and it seems to be legit. I think that'll work, too. Although of the people I've heard rumored, I picture Naya Rivera the most. Is it fall of 2013 yet?!
What do you guys think about this casting? Yay or nay? Any thoughts on who should play Finnick, Wiress, Beetee, etc? So many rumors out there, I just want to know already! [I really out-nerded myself.]
Okay, must go. I have an appointment in the morning with my advisor to make my grad schedule. So exciting!
