I really try and listen to my customers in all areas of Schoolgirl Style. When I get a reoccurring theme request, I want to deliver, however, I love to be different and get excited when I can create a theme that hasn’t been done before. With that said, if I do get several requests for a theme, you better believe that I want it to be nicer than anything you can currently find on the market.
I am so so so proud of my Superhero classroom theme! I hope you love it as much as I do!
Behind the Scenes: I bought the most amazing superhero cape for my husband and had it personalized with his initial. I thought it would be great to wear on Halloween at school AND to be photographed in my Superhero classroom theme (although he had no idea I was planning to include him in my photo shoot)! This particular day, Matt was home due to the snowy weather and he spent the day working around the house. When E’lisa finished the photos, I found Matt and broke the news that he was about to be in my Superhero pictures. Needless to say, he was NOT on board…Matt was covered in paint and, well, not really looking picture perfect. After some thinking, we all compromised and E’lisa created “action” shots and blurred his image a bit. We did get a few pictures…see if you can find them in the post below! Hey, it could have been worse… I could have had him wear tights, right???
How cute are these colorful masks on the lanterns? I used black construction paper circles and inserted in the eyes of the mask…just looks better that way!:)
LOVE LOVE LOVE the can inserts! Use them in plastic cans from Michaels or wrap around aluminum cans to hold your supplies.
I adore the big, bold patterns in this collection…and the BRIGHT colors!
I wanted to create my superhero set without too much clip art…however, I did add some adorable superhero posters. Add your student’s faces to create a cute display in your classroom. Your students are sure to LOVE this!
One of my favorite designs in my collection are these really cute Word Wall labels…so colorful and fun!
The cape was purchased off of Etsy from Little Hero Capes. Can you imagine Open House night? You NEED to wear this!!!
I used a cake pan to hold the cans and supplies on my table. A cake pan? I know it’s a little odd, but it worked great and looked really good with this theme!
Who could THAT be??? Is it Superman?
I am loving this stationary set (included in the collection)! Stationary sets include editable business cards, note cards, thank you cards, personalized stationary, Avery label templates, and monogrammed prints for your desk.
I created these super awesome prints to go along with the collection…
I created a cityscape for the backdrop of my collection. It was so so easy! The key to making this look great…don’t measure a thing! Just cut and don’t over think it! I know this may be hard for some of you…I can picture those perfectionist teachers pulling out their rulers and measuring tapes right now. I suppose you can do that, but I love the whimsical look of this project. Directions: 1. Cut large rectangles in various sizes. I used black bulletin board paper for this. Glue to the board. Just eyeball it. 2. Cut yellow rectangles out of construction paper and just glue on to the black paper to make it look like windows. Don’t worry about lining it up perfectly either. Just cut and glue! See? I told you it was easy!
Cape and cuffs were personalized with Matt’s initial…
Bags were from Oriental Trading. This would be perfect for independent reading materials OR use for storing your student’s supplies and books (if they don’t have a storage area at their desk).
How about those really cute Superhero Rules above? I can just see these adorable posters displayed in your classroom!
