My Ever Evolving Birthday Board

30 August 2012

One of the top items I see of mine pinned is my birthday boards.  I first had a cow print themed one.  Then, last year I made a polka dot one using the labels from my Polka Dot Labels and Signs packet.  I had so many requests to just sell the labels for the birthday board that I decided to revamp mine and make a little packet to sell.  You can click on the images below to check out the packet on TpT.  

*Warning, I went a little overboard with the polka dots in my classroom.  Don't stare too long at the bulletin board I made - you might get dizzy.  I would suggest taking it down a notch by using just a solid bulletin board background if you are going to use a polka dot border or vice versa.  

Feel free to pin.  I just ask that if you post something like this on your own blog, that you don't say it is "Pinterest Inspired."  Please, link back to me or this post.  I really would love to see how your boards come out.  Also, if there is a demand for boards of different color schemes, let me know and I will add them to my "To Create for TpT List."

Update!  I have a ton of birthday boards in my store now!  CLICK HERE to check out more birthday board themes!!

  1. I love how you have your class guinea pig's birthday listed there. Too cute!

    1. Haha, I forgot about that! Molly was so good about it, too. These two new girls probably won't make it to the board this year.

  2. You inspired me and I created mine! Just curious what you use to hold your pictures? I cut up an old photo album page! Thanks!!

    1. I use fun tack to stick them to the board. That is a great idea about the old photo album page! Thanks for sharing.

  3. This is so much cuter than my birthday poster from the teacher store. I may just have to go here this year, seeing as my birthday board is still not up. Will be sure to share if I do!

  4. I LOVE This!!! I wish I hadn't just made a new one this year (yet again!) Thanks for sharing!

  5. Looks good! You were right about getting dizzy if you stare too long! lol. I'm working on a board similar, I'll have to show some pictures soon.
    I'm having my first linky party tomorrow, I'd love for you to join! It's called Friday Photo Dump for all of those pictures that you want to share but didn't make it to your blog posts!

  6. Love it! I had no idea you were the originator of this. I plan on making one from a pin I saw and I'm glad to now know it was yours!

    So cute! Thanks!

  7. I've seen your boards before, too ;) But, the polka dot one is new to me. I kinda like all the dots:) once the pictures of your students are on there, it won't make your eyes cross. As always, love the ideas!

  8. I love your birthday board! I was just wondering what you do when you get a new student. Do you take a picture of them individually or take another group shot? I work in a school with a transient population, and I was just trying to figure out the easiest way to make it work.

    1. I once took a photo of the new student and then cut her out and glued her next to the last picture. For a transient population, I would cut out all the kids holding their own number and then place them on cardstock. That way if you add a new kid or take one away, it won't look weird.

  9. This is my first time seeing your birthday board and it's perfect. I'm always looking for ways to incorporate birthdays with limited wall space.

  10. Hi Erica! I happened upon your site today via TBA! I love your birthday board idea~ I actually do something similar except I was putting up new pictures each month (featuring one month at a time). I like your idea better because its one less thing per month that I have to think about!
    p.s. I also love your site colors. I'm currently obsessed with grey and yellow!

  11. totally brilliant, as always!! I'm with Elizabeth, I like the dots! :)

  12. Love the polka dot birthday board! I have a polka dot/teal theme going on in my room this year! This is SO much more interesting than my rinky dink birthday poster I bought! LOL!

    BTW - I finally became a follower after stalking your blog for over a year! I just started bloggin myself and WOW! Do I have a lot to learn!

  13. Your boards are so cute. I noticed that we both have November birthdays! I've been a FB fan for a while but I can't believe I wasn't already following your blog. Your ideas are always so great.


  14. love the polka dots! Question-is the pink polka dot background paper, or fabric?

  15. I love this idea! It is so cute and clever! I think I'm going to try this in my class room this year!
