While I was visiting my awfully hot classroom (old, old, oooooold building), I worked on my favorite thing to do! Bulletin boards!!! To be honest, when I was first hired last year, all I could think about was which bulletin board I would have for reading, writing, math etc. and how I would decorate them... ha! Nothing has changed this year! :)
Here is a little tutorial on how to do tissue paper borders which I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to do.
1. First cut tissue paper into strips.
2. Take the strip of tissue paper and pinch like so.
3. Then staple the spot where the tissue paper was pinched.
4. Next, gather the remaining tissue paper, pinch and staple.
(This will take a good amount of staples to finish the border.)
Finally, the finished product!
If you feel that the staple pressed the tissue paper flat, just brush your hand over it to fluff it up. :)
Very simple and very cute for any classroom!
I tried using strips of paper last year from a Pinterest pin and I found it really hard to make the paper look a certain way. The tissue paper is really easy to work with and suited the look I wanted for my classroom.
Try it out and tell me what you think! :)
