Here are some great ideas from an artist that helped with Locker Decorating this past season at Collins Hill. Her kids have played a variety of sports, so I am thrilled to show off her examples! Julie loves making her decorations larger than 8 1/2 X 5 1/2, so they make a big impact! She also uses Fun Foam and lots of die-cuts! The foam comes in sheets and cuts in many different sizes, shapes & colors. Fun Foam can be found at arts & craft stores.
Die cuts are shapes which have been machine punched out of card or paper, using a die pattern. You can buy die cut decorations in packets, or you can buy die cut machines and punches to use at home. In our NE Atlanta suburb area, we have found that the public schools have these machines in the teacher's workroom. Call your high school to see if they have this equipment and what access is needed to use it. Usually, you will need to bring your own paper and sign in at the main office. The patterns will vary depending on the school, location and mascot. If your high school doesn't have the machine, don't hesitate to contact the lower grade schools because they use this type of gadget more than the older classes! Some scrapbook stores also allow use of their tools if you buy your other supplies there! Please let us know if you have any questions!
Thanks Julie!(Send her some comment love!)
