Decor help needed

Clip to ScrapBook #1

Hi All! I teach K-2 medically fragile students. My staff and I chose "transportation" for our theme for the upcoming year. I am having a great deal of trouble finding cute decor for this theme. I really need name plates, binder covers, and calendar items more than anything. If you have any advice, I would greatly appreciate it. I have already scoured TPT and Lakeshore, with no luck.
Thanks in advance!

I normally have great luck with Trend Enterprises, although the past two years I haven't been able to find things for my theme. Carson Dellosa is another good one. Oriental Trading may have some things, too, though probably not name plates.

When I was searching for some theme ideas this year, there were some on Etsy that people made-school name tags for the theme I was searching for. You could try there.

I search Amazon for theme related things, too.

What about Party City? That's what immediately came to mind when I saw your theme. Might be good for a few pieces here and there!

Maybe you might find things you can adapt to your needs by contacting car dealerships, local public transportation or your city/town offices.

Have you tried refining your search by getting specific? Airplanes, bus, car, train, horse, skates. Etc.

I’d make my own... I’m at the point that I make a lot of my decor pieces. If you need help, let me know!

If you are able to make your own stuff, Whimsy Clips has some cute clip art. It is not free. I use PPT or Google Slides to create my own stuff. It is cheaper and you can make it the way you want.

Here is a link so you can see what the clip art looks like.

Thanks for the idea to check Etsy. Although they can be pricey, I'll check it out.

Thanks for all of the great suggestions. Didn''t think about Party City or Etsy. I am afraid of trying to make things on my own. A touch of ADD along with bad eyes and hands, doesn't always help in situations like this.

Name Plates

I know you said you’re hoping not to have to make them yourself, but if you don’t find what you need —and at a reasonable price.... For name plates at least (I’m assuming you mean ones for student desks) maybe buy colored sentence strips and use transportation stickers to decorate them. When I googled “transportation stickers” or “vehicles stickers,” a lot of choices came up. If the stickers are small, use several different ones for each. Then you can laminate them and voilà — name plates!
