Fairy Tales

Since "The Gingerbread Man" is my classroom's theme this school year, I decided to make a tag inspired by him for this week's "Fairy Tales" theme.

I used a photograph of the sunbathing gingerbread couple tags that I made for the "Summer Holiday" theme in July, to make a welcome back poster for my classroom door.  Therefore, this new tag will be great for next month's poster.  I began by designing outfits using K&Company papers for a couple of gingerbread figures that I cut with my Tim Holtz die.  Next, I designed the backgrounds for my tags using Martha Stewart papers, glitter, and an airplane stamp, as well as reinforcers, a Dymo labeler, a button, pin, jute twine, and a micron pen.  I hand lettered my own version of the Gingerbread Man's classic rhyme to convey to my gifted and talented students that I have great expectations for their future.
Have a blessed weekend, everyone!
