An average teacher trying to do the best she can with the little money she has.

I love a good display, and this one lingered in the back of my mind before becoming an actuality.
Black fabric $4.99 p/m @ Spotlight
Star borders from an old display (or roughly $9.99 a pack)
Clear A4 display pockets part of student stationery pack (or $3 for 10 @ KMart)
Letters from an old display
Laminated stars from an ex Book Fair display
I popped a strip of sellotape along the bottom of each clear pocket and on the top corner of each back page. This stopped them from splitting and cracking when stapled to the wall.
A paper clip on each pocket stops the front page from sagging.
The idea is that during the year each new piece of published writing will be added to the front of the folder, creating some lovely displays.
At the end of the year I will pull them down and the children will have a collection of their writing to take home.
Note: absolutely in love with the crochet cushion cover I made (on the couch) to cover a cushion I purchased from the local op-shop for $2. Yumbers!
