I found this creative idea in the Family Fun Crafts for Kids spring issue. All you need to create this art curtain are 12 by 12 inch 3 hole page protectors, scrapbook paper, jumbo round brads, a glue gun, and tape. I found the page protectors in the scrapbook album area and I made sure I chose the heavy duty clear protectors. Next, I found coordinating sheets of paper. I decorate my classroom with lots of green so I chose these as my colors.
Next, I found some decorated large brads. I placed the scrapbook paper into the the protectors and made sure that the openings all faced the top. I connected the protectors with the brads (see photos) . The back is a little tricky. I hot glued the bottom row to the top (see photo below) Then I slid some of my son's artwork into the sleeves.
This cute display can be placed with magnets onto a chalkboard, taped to a wall, or you can attach rings to the top and thread the curtain onto a pocket chart or dowel rod. You can also add more sleeves to make a larger curtain and use any color or decorating theme you want. The great part about this project is it took 10-15 minutes!!!! I am planning on using these in my classroom next year for sure! (This curtain looks a lot cuter than it appears in the photograph.)
