While I know MOST of you are winding down, but I find that when the year starts winding down, my brain starts taking off! Hence why I can't.stop.thinking.about.next.year....... already. So, if you're like me and are ready to get a *little* jump on next year, keep reading.
The past few years, I've stopped using the typical teacher borders in trying to save a little bit of money. For the last two years, I've used crepe paper which works pretty good, but the bad part is that I teach in a room with NO air conditioning. Yes you read that right, no air. It gets hot. Really hot. And humid. Really humid. So when that happens, the crepe paper sags. It's not pretty, so I needed another solution.
Recently, my girls and I were on a shopping trip to Michael's in search of Beanie Boos. Are your kiddos mad about these guys too? Anyhoo, while shopping I came across some black, chevron cupcake liners and I bought them ALL! I mean I seriously emptied the bin. They were only 50 cents, plus a teacher discount?!?!?! It was a steal I tell you. :) So here's my new border that is slowly but surely going up around my classroom. Who knew cupcake liners could look so cute!
Happy decorating friends!!!!
