It’s Kris here and I am finally working on some inspirational classroom decor for my students. I had fun with this project and I hope that you do too!
I teach math and sometimes math can be hard and frustrating which can lead to negative attitudes in the classroom. I like the word passion. Teaching and crafting are 2 passions of mine. So I knew I wanted a quote on the wall with the word passion in there. So I browsed around looking for a good quote that really resonated with me and my teaching style.
I found this quote: “People with great passion can make the impossible happen” – Author Unknown. This quote really resonated with me. I’m passionate about teaching and I believe students learn best when their teacher is passionate about teaching.
I found the quote….now let’s head to the Printable Cuttable Creatables site and find some SVG files that we can use to create a fun poster for the classroom.
For this first poster, I used the files:
- Lil Crayons & Pencils Banners Set SVG Cut File & Clipart – for the crayons at the top
- School Supplies Free SVG Borders – for the open book
My original thought was to use foam poster board, but my local shop only had black and I didn’t want a black poster.
Not all was lost. My classroom is decorated with some gold and rose gold wire baskets, so when I found this white poster paper with a black and gold border, it was a perfect match for my classroom!
I then wanted a couple of words to pop from the rest, this is where I decided to use gold glitter cardstock along with a cool font called ‘Hello Honey’ – one of my favorites. The black text is in the font ‘Sitka Small’.
I love the way this poster turned out so much that I wanted to make another one. This time, I took inspiration from a poster pack that I had saved to my Amazon wish list a while back. For this poster I used the ruler from the Printable Cuttable Creatables file ‘School Supplies Free SVG Borders’ – it’s a free file and it’s amazing!! I made the ruler 16 inches long – which is longer than my cutting mat, so I needed to slice the image to be able to cut it on a 12×12 mat.
The last step I did was laminate the posters so that they could last a few years in my classroom!
I hope that this project brings you an inspiration to take your favorite quotes and use creative ways to display them around your home or classroom!
