Displaying Student's Work - Minus the Staples

Happy three day weekend friends!  I am here to share about this big boy :)


I was totally inspired by my amazing friend Maribel from Learning in Wonderland.  I drool at every thing this girl makes. See?  Isn't this absolutely precious?


For those of you not fans of primary colors... I hear you, but I had a ton of primary color scrapbooking card stock, so that is what I used.  I do like primary colors. A lot :) 


Before I thought about the actual board.  I had to find a way to include my favorite color.  Red tulle was just what I needed.  Making bows has never been easy for me.  I twisted and twisted and perhaps called out a few bad words, but the tulle did not care a bit.   
I traced twenty five clothespins onto black craft foam, hot glued the not so pretty, not so even bows and tada!

Thanks for your feedback on IG, I went with rainbow order.  I had to look it up. Yeap. I have never memorized such thing.  Embarrassing!
I measured every single sheet to find a midpoint, hot glued it to my already laminated card stock, and added some black border to tie in the black craft foam color. 

I had always stapled or taped my students work. No more of that.  No more staples nor tape I need to take off the day my kids take their hard work home.  I am pretty happy about that! 

What do you think?
