DIY Classroom Decor, Part 2Yesterday I showed you how to make some cute classroom decor pieces using a single sheet of scrapbook paper. Today, I will show you how to make larger accent pieces, without having your scrapbook paper on hand.
Yesterday's example was able to fit on a single piece of 12 x 12 inch scrapbook paper. Sometimes I want pieces that are a bit larger. This is always the case for the pieces I feature on my hallway board. They need to stand out and help showcase this large area. I used to make pieces that were several feet tall, but again, I have simplified over the years.
No matter how big or small you make them, the concept is truly the same. You just have to fiddle with your projector until you get the size you want.
Alrighty, here we go!
1. Enlarge your image so that you can trace larger pieces. To make the image larger, simply use whatever function your overhead (or Elmo) might have to do so.
2. Use a manila folder to make some "take home" tracers. If you already have the colors you want/need, then you can trace the different parts of your image directly onto your various sheets of paper.
4. Assemble the pieces together, like a puzzle, and adhere with glue (I use the extra strength Elmer's Craft Bond glue sticks because they really hold up). And, ta da....another super cute accent!
