Here is how they came to be: I bought these bathroom passes below from the teacher store at the end of last year. In the past I’ve had plastic passes, wooden passes, cheap passes, and the pricer ones — but I’ve never yet made it through the entire year without any of them being damaged in some way shape or form. So when I saw these passes which were new and made of rubber I thought, why not?
At the time I hadn’t decided on a theme, so I got these ones even though I wasn’t crazy about the brown because I liked the polka dots. Then last week I designed my Owls ‘n’ Dots Classroom Theme and decided I wanted to try and make my passes coordinate with it.
So after hearing all about the magic that is Modge Podge this summer, I decided to give it a try. And it was super easy! I used the very scientific process of trial and error to figure out how big my rectangle needed to be on my computer to fit the pass. Then I designed the passes and printed them out onto card stock. I applied one coat of modege podge directly on the pass to glue my cut out out down and a second coat to the top to seal it once it was on.
