How to Create Class Stationary

Whew! I've been back at school for 2 weeks now, and I'm tired! I have great bunch of 23 kiddos who have already stolen my heart! I love getting to know them and watch them grow from little 2nd graders to big kid 3rd graders. I also LOVE seeing my kiddos from last year. It just makes my day when they come say hi in the morning, bring me a picture (or loom bracelet!), say hi in the hallway, and most of all hug me when they see me. It just makes me so happy!

I shared on IG last week my stationary for this year.

And I promised I'd show you how I did it!

I did this last year, too, after I saw this on Pinterest, but it was just the image...so if anyone knows where this came from, let me know!
To start off, give your students small pieces of paper or post-its to draw their face and write their name. I would definitely use white, or a VERY light colored paper for this!
Next, glue or tape each picture on a sheet of plain paper and scan the paper.

Your file will look something like this.
Next, you'll want to take snapshots of each kiddo's drawing. 
This will automatically copy the image.
Use your photo editor of choice... I was at school, so I used good ol' paint!
Do this for each image and make a border with your students. When you have them all in there, save the picture as either a JPEG or PNG file.
Next, go to Word and insert the picture and position it like this. You may need to adjust the size of your image to fit the paper better.
 Add whatever text you'd like for a header and add a text box for the content.
Format the text box with no border.
It should look something like this when you're done! :)

I hope you found this tutorial helpful! You can hover over any image to pin it to save the idea! Tomorrow I'm hoping to FINALLY reveal my classroom, and on Friday, I will have another Featured Friday post! You'll definitely want to follow my new blogger, because if you do, you'll get some awesome clipart! :)

Have a great rest of the long weekend!

  2. I love it! I can remember when I was in middle school as a kid we did something similar but onto a teatowel that was sold as a fundraiser. It must've been the thing to do that year because my cousins at a school 4 hours away did the same thing!
