My solution: Post-It Notes & Book Tape
Have you ever heard of Scotch Book Tape? It definitely costs more than cheap-o clear packing tape, but I reserve it for specials projects like this and I find it to last longer, hold up very well, and be the best permanent temporary adhesive (does that even make sense?).
Here's a link on Amazon, in case you can't find it in your office bog box store:
I also love printing on sticky notes. Kristen at Ladybug's Teacher Files has not only a very helpful tutorial HERE, but the PowerPoint template I used to make these lovelies.... she's awesome.
I used Super Sticky Post-Its for this project only because I loved the color (tee hee!) and my font is "My Own Topher" from Kevin & Amanda.
Here's a picture of the labeling in progress:
And, the completed look:
I simply trimmed the sticky note, stuck it to the drawer, and secured it on top with a piece of Book Tape. Now, switching these labels (or even re-positioning a crooked one!) is easy-peasy on both the drawers and my patience! The book tape is durable, transparent, and comes off easily when our centers change-- perfecto!
How do you label your drawers/shelves/bins that need changing throughout the year? Anybody else in love with Post-It Note printing?
Before I go, I wanted to let you know I have added Earth Day Fraction Fun to my TpT and TN Stores.
Some of my thirdsters are still struggling with equivalent fractions, so these activities are here to help. Inside, you will find 16 fraction cards that will be used for all three activities: Memory, Comparing, and a Secret Message sheet. Fun, quick, targeted, and timely :) Have fun with them!
