Monday Made It: Teacher's Toolbox

This is the first time I have linked up with 4th Grade Frolics for her Monday Made It Linky! I made a teacher toolbox this week and I am super excited about it! But I lame! I can't put that on Monday Made It!  I have to be the only teacher left out there who has not made a teacher toolbox! But to my surprise, I found many teachers out there who have recently made theirs as well! I have been DYING for one of these for over a year and I couldn't be more excited that I finally made it! So I decided to share it!
First, I spray painted my toolbox purple, my favorite!
While this was drying, I made simple, plain labels in Word that I printed on colored cardstock and cut out.

I had a little help with this...
Next, I glued on ribbon to decorate them.

Excuse me...Are you almost done???
Then, the easiest way I could think of to keep the labels in the drawers was the tiny glue dots! One in each of the top corners holds them in place securely and can't be seen! This was so much easier than I thought it would be!
