School is back in session! As teachers decorate their classrooms, they will find Deflecto products to be a great help for getting organized and making signs!

Stencil: 1″ alphabet sheet
Embroidered letters: sheet of 1″ white letters (to spell teachers name)

Paper Trimmer
1. Frame: Cut a 10-1/2″ x 12″ rectangle of chevron paper. Cut a 5-1/2″ x 10-1/2″ rectangle of black cardstock. 
2. Use the stencil and white marker to write Welcome and the room number on the black cardstock.  Adhere the black to the chevron paper. Insert between the panels of the frame.
3. Adhere the owl shapes to the frame.
4. Stencil the teacher’s name as for the sign on a sign tag using the marker. There may be more than one teacher in the classroom, and multiple names can be put on signs to interchange when needed.
5. Cube Storage: Cut chevron paper into four 5-1/2″ squares. Insert inside the four sides of the cube. Press up against the cube. If the paper isn’t glued, it can be changed.
6. Cut a piece of mini yellow chevron slightly larger than a sign tag. Adhere the sign tag to the paper. Adhere embroidered letters spelling the teacher’s name to the sign. Adhere to the front of the cube. Adhere the bumblebee to the cube as shown.
7. Finish: Fill the cube with pencils, rulers, scissors, etc.
Stencil the message using the white marker.
Embroidered letters spelling the teacher’s name on the sign tag.
Decorate to suit your classroom and enjoy!
May teachers and students enjoy a wonderful and productive school year! It is my hope that you have found some inspiration on the blog today!
