Where's the School Counselor?

My days are spent running around the school, which makes it difficult when students, teachers, administrators, or other school staff are trying to find me.  I was trying to think of a creative way to let everyone know where I am, when I saw a template for a mood dial in Family Fun Magazine. Sometimes I get ideas from unexpected places! I was inspired to craft a dial of my own - a Where's the Counselor? dial!

To make the Where's the Counselor? dial I followed the directions for the mood dial in Family Fun Magazine. I used Diecuts With A View 8 by 8 Grade School Stack, school themed patterned scrabook paper, to make my backgrounds. I used Diecuts With A View 8 Inch by 8 Inch Textured Jewels Cardstock Stack, matching scrapbook cardstock for the circles and the dial. For the wording above the dial, I printed out words on computer paper and glued them to the same Diecuts With A View 8 Inch by 8 Inch Textured Jewels Cardstock Stack paper as the circles and the dial.  To affix the dial I used a paper fastener.

This project was simple to make. It is a fun and colorful way to let students, teachers, administrators, and other school staff know where I am. I now have my Where's the Counselor? dial hanging outside my door. I used removable foam mounting squares to mount it on the tile wall.
