New Blog - Owl-ways Be Inspired - and a Giveaway!

Have you heard about the new 2nd/3rd grade collaborative blog, Owl-Ways Be Inspired?  Well, I'm an author!  Head on over today to read a little about me and also to snag my Back to School Exclusive Freebie!

With my freebie, I printed the labels on Avery full page shipping labels.  This is one full sheet of sticker, so you can turn anything into a sticker!  So cool!  I printed my labels, and cut them out on my awesome Paper Monster paper cutter from My Binding.  I love the Paper Monster series, I also have the letter opener and the binding machine.  The thing I love about them is that the products are lightweight, but made out of durable plastic, so they are perfect for the classroom!  The paper cutter is actually a 2-in-1, it cuts either with a sliding blade or a guillotine. I love that it has a handle, so it is easy to carry from one end of the room to another, or easy to take home if I want to.

The three different blades

Using the slider

A little tray catches the slivers of paper that you cut off.

Guillotine has an adjustable handle.

Enough about my awesome paper cutter, here is how the folders came out.  LOVE!

My friend and former colleague Laura makes the cutest clipart over in her TpT store!  I used her new School Supply Clipart on this freebie.  There are 106 images in this little set!  

Laura agreed to let me give one away to celebrate my first post on Owl-ways Be Inspired!  Woo hoo! Click below to enter.

  4. I love your freebie of student folder labels. I was wondering if you might provide one for a student data folder? I plan on using all the labels but a data folder label would make a complete set for me and perhaps others! Thanks so much!

    The collaborative blog looks great - such a fun idea. I'd love to collaborate like that sometime!
    Isn't it funny how teachers get so happy with paper-cutters and laminators?

  8. Hi Nicole! I found you from Owl-Ways Be Inspired and I'm a new follower- I'm an ESL teacher. It's great that you're getting your ESOL endorsement! I am starting my principal certification, but I'd really like to go and get a reading specialist cert after that. Hmm...we both really like school!
