I Love Teachers to Pieces
It's Teacher Appreciation Week as you know and I have been helping with this lovely week at my boys school. In the hallway I made a bulletin board that says, "We Love You to Pieces". I was inspired a few weeks ago when I found my college friend Allison had a blog like me. She has this amazing blog called, Room Mom 101. On there you can find all kinds of ideas for making the classroom run smoother and ideas for all those Room Moms.
I saw this idea on there as a door decoration and knew that I had to do it for Teacher Appreciation Week too. It was rather simple to put together and could be used to appreciate others besides teachers.
I cut out the "pieces" out of 4 in. circles and wrote the staff's names on them. You need brown, yellow, and orange.
Tape or glue the lettering to the bag (made out of orange butcher paper). Now staple it up to the wall just along the top. I stuffed the inside with plastic sacks to give it depth. Continue stapling as you add more and more bags. Staple down the sides and finish with staples at the bottom.
When you are stapling up the "pieces" scatter them out like they are pouring out of the bag. Die cut lettering to say, "We Love You to Pieces".
Stephanie at Teaching in Room 6 to make my border.
Hope you enjoyed it as much as I did making it.
