After using my book crawler app to scan in my books and assigning them to a category (i.e. bullying, character ed, friendship, etc) I wanted to separately categorize the books. Well wouldn't luck have it, the librarian at my school was doing some cleaning and had these book/folder holders on the staff, free giveaway table (wish I'd gotten there earlier to get more).
|Free book holders!|
Who knew that a little bit of scrapbook paper and adhesive spray could spruce up these book holders:
|Spray adhesive on, let dry for 30-45 seconds before putting on scrapbook paper.|
|Spray adhesive, or any type of glue will work.|
|Add scrapbook paper and trim off the edges. I used the leftover scraps to glue to the front.|
|Recovered book holders|
|Labels, I found these on clearance ($6, I think) at Office Depot|
|Blank labels printable|
Here's the finished product:
I also used the labels to add to storage baskets (some with more books) in my cabinet.
|Labels on storage bins (Target $6.99)|
Total cost for the project: $0, the book holders were free and I had all the other supplies already. As I've said time and time again, free is my favorite price! This was a super easy fix to add a little flare to the way my counselor books are stored. I really wish that I had gotten more book holders because I have many more book categories (I know to act fast for next time)!
How do you keep your counselor books organized?
