Program these inexpensive booklets into a cute little note from the teacher! These receipt books are perfect because they are not only lined and ready-to-go, BUT they have a carbon to keep for your records. Send a quick note of encouragement or support for the positive things you want your kids to be doing.
Cover the "money part".
Create labels to personalize the notes AND cover the money part in one EASY step.
I decided to purchase the Avery Labels with 14 labels per sheet: Template 5162. The standard 30 to a page label wasn't long enough to cover the parts I wanted covered. On each label, I can program my name TWICE, so I get 28 notes prepped in a snap! That's one entire booklet. In fact, I will be making another trip to Dollar Tree to have my notes ready for the YEAR! Because, seriously....I know me. Life will get busy and when better to do it than now!
Quick Tip for Choosing Your Font:
wordmark.it is a great website for you to try out all of the fonts that are loaded on your computer. If you are a font junkie like me, then your Quick & Easy project could turn into something WAY too long simply trying out all of your fonts! This makes it super simple!
Type in the phrase you want and click the choices that you think are contenders. See the ones that have a green box? Those are the ones I selected.
Then, click the option to "Filter Selected" to see a smaller sampling of those that you like. TRUST ME! This little tip ALONE will save you time on future projects!
The Fun Part
I had a great time playing with colors and effects with the fonts to make the labels super cute. I even added one of my favorite froggy graphics! My kids expect it and KNOW it is special if I add a FROG!
Once I was happy with my page and printed it, I used my handy dandy cutter to cut the center of each label. That way, I can quickly have four labels on each strip.
I think they turned out super cute! Now all I need is a classroom of students and a watchful eye to catch all of the great choices my kids make or to give a bit of encouragement when needed!
I'd love to hear if you give this one a try or if you are already doing something like this. How's it working for you?!?
Until next time!
