Colorful Bulletin Boards
Another problem I ran into were the large gaps that existed between each piece of fabric. I initially thought I would need to have at least 3 layers of trim borders around each fabric section. It wasn't until I was standing in the store holding a ton of trim that it hit me: " It seems so silly to spend this much money on trim when I could use that on other things I really do need for curriculum. Why not try something else?" A night or two later, the answer dawned on me: USE PLASTIC TABLECLOTHS! On my next trip to school I took one plastic tablecloth, cut it into 4 long pieces, and proceeded to staple away around each side of my fabric. I bunched and stapled for quite some time, but I'm loving the 3D effect and added color!
