This was so simple and cost less than 20 dollars to make. I bought the set of drawers from Lowes (Stack on 22-Drawer Storage Cabinet located in Hardware) for about $16. I then picked out 4 complimentary designs of scrapbook paper from Michaels, Mod Podge, and sponge applicators.
To size the paper, I simply removed a drawer, traced it on the paper and cut to size. My friend Bridget brought this nifty paper cutter over:
This made it so easy for me to get fast, straight cuts. In fact, my mission today is to find one of these for myself.
I printed out the drawer labels on printer paper. To make sizing easy, I used two of the formatted labels available in Microsoft Word (Avery 8660 and 8163 to be exact). I used embellished scissors to cut out the words, and then used a thin layer of mod podge to affix the label to my already sized piece of scrapbook paper. After that, I brushed another thin layer of mod podge on the paper, taking care to avoid the printed words, since they bleed. I pressed the finished product into place on the inside of the drawer and Voila! Perfect place to store all my various teacher necessities!
