Make it Monday: Teacher Binder

Teacher Binder by Miss, Hey Miss!

This past week I completed the major components of my teacher binder.  There are still a few things I need to add, but I cannot do so until I learn more about my classroom for the upcoming year.  I have been drooling over all the cute teacher binder sets on Pinterst, but I have a dilemma. My colored printer is out of ink and my HP Laserjet is out of toner.  I even ordered new toner, but I'm getting an error message. So until I start my teaching job, and get a consistent pay check, printing is on hold.  With all of that being said, I know I can go to UPS, Kinkos or Office Depot/Max, I just didn't feel it was necessary when I can be creative and create my own alternative!  What was my solution to the 'no printer' situation?! My Silhouette Cameo came to the rescue! Keep reading to find out what how I made my binder for Make it Monday!
