Monday Made It - Reading Displays

Monday Made It's are so fun to read! I've been pinning and getting all kinds of ideas. Be sure and check out other great Monday Made It's with Tara at 4th Grade Frolics.
I finally put my book down and got busy creating for the library. I fell in love with the little frames from IKEA I had seen in other great posts. The closest IKEA store is 3 1/2 hours from my house. NOT going there... Yes, I know I can shop online, but I spend way too much at Amazon... Finally, someone posted the frames were at Michaels. Now that I can do! Michael's is only an hour away. Needed a great excuse to go to Barnes and Noble (across the street!). I found several colors that I just had to purchase! They were on sale and I could use a teacher discount.... couldn't resist.
Project One -
This is what I had originally wanted needed the frames for:

My new table labels. The ones in the red frame are gong in my library. The black framed ones are for a fellow librarian.  I created the labels in mostly black and white to make them a little more ink friendly. If you can use them, feel free to download them. They are labeled Table 1 - 10 and Group 1- 10. I forgot if Jennifer wanted table or group numbers for her library. Please leave me a little love just to let me know you could use them! The horizontal labels (red frame) are here, while the vertical labels (black frames) are here.


I didn't stop there! I made printed a few quotes to display around the library. They are all lines from children's literature. I'm going to swap them out throughout the year. Sorry the photographer needs to work taking on anti glare pictures!

If you can use these, they are found on TPT. Yes, free. Just leave me a little feedback. I'd appreciate it! I love making things for my reading buddies.

Next and final project for the week:  (There was a book calling out to be read!)
Remember I said I found several colors.... These are for a couple of the girls down the hall. I won't name names just in case they happen to read this. I want to create a couple/few more for my other special teaching buddies. Oh well, another trip to Michaels and Barnes and Noble....... :)


I think they will look really cute on their desks! Don't' forget to check out other MMI's on Tara's blog at 4th Grade Frolics.

Keep Reading!!!


  1. SUPER cute frames! I like the scalloping around the edge. I got the plain ones from IKEA by way of eBay. Like you the closest IKEA is very far away. I didn't hear about Michael's until after I bought the frames on eBay. My Monday Made It involves frames also.


  2. I really, really want to get some of these. I saw some in Michael's, but they weren't the size I wanted. It's a brand new store and I was a little overwhelmed, so I need to go back and see if they have them stuck in another place! Super cute!

    1. Thanks! I'm making little back to school presents for my teachers. Going back to Michaels for more frames....

  4. Your frames look great! I, too, am a bit far from an IKEA but plan to go for the first time to one by Chicago this summer. I will have to look for these gems. Thanks so much for sharing how you use them...


  5. I was planning to go to Michael's soon anyways, will definitely look for these. I downloaded from your store, and left feedback. Thanks!
