Teacher Toolbox Anniversary & Makeover!! {Plus, Link Up Your Own!!}

3 years ago today, I shared a post about the Teacher Toolbox I created to use in my classroom. From there (thanks to Pinterest), Teacher Toolboxes took off and are now EVERYWHERE!!!!

Over the past three years, it has been so wonderful to see so many teachers create and enjoy their own Teacher Toolboxes!! I have seen so many amazing variations on what started out as simple idea. I know that mine came in handy, as I ditched my teacher desk and needed a place to store all my very-much-needed teacher supplies!!

When I realized yesterday that it was the 3-Year Anniversary of the Teacher Toolbox, I thought the best way to celebrate would be to give my original toolbox a bit of a makeover. My classroom colors and style have changed in 3 years, so I thought I would bring the ol' toolbox up to date!

For my latest toolbox I used a Herringbone background from Sonya Dehart Design, one of my favorite kg fonts, Strawberry Limeade, and an adorable border from Lovin Lit. I printed the labels on cardstock, cut, and taped them in, simply using invisible tape. To top it off, I used Washi Tape to add to the fun!! {My new Washi Tape Dispenser from Michael's sure came in handy!!}
If you would like a copy of the labels to make your very own Teacher Toolbox visit my TpT Store to grab this freebie!!
I can't wait to see 3 more years of Teacher Toolboxes creations!!!
