Creative Ribbon Bookmarks

Valentine's Day came and went and my students were eager to began a new project. So, I gathered a bright assortment of ribbons, our favorite specialty papers, and a bunch of sparkly embellishments. I demonstrated how to cut the ribbon ends and adhere the papers and other items to the ribbon tops. What resulted were funky, colorful bookmarks which anyone would gladly mark off their favorite novel. Check out these wonderful, original creations.

Tiny Totes

I found some small tote bags we had left over from our summer arts program. So, for a change from the cards they had been making, we switched gears and painted on the totes for Valentine's Day. This is just a small sampling of the many beautiful creations from my students.
