Little Yellow Bicycle Cycling Team!

Hi guys!  I am so excited to be a part of the Little Yellow Bicycle Cycling Team and to bring you these projects using the Head of the Class collection!

The LYB Head of Class collection is wonderful!  I love the designs and colors that this line brings and as always I love-love-love the weight of the paper and all the matching embellishments that LYB has brought out with this line!  You can see the entire collection by clicking HERE.


My first project was this classroom art piece which will be gifted to Gannon's teachers for Christmas!

I cut the Head of the Class paper down to 8-1/2" x 11" so that it would fit through my everyday printer and then designed the word art using my Creative Memories Storybook Creator 4.0.  Under all those crayons is a faint outlined "M" so I would have a form to follow.  I used plain scissors to cut the crayons to fit the shapes of the letter and then used my hot glue gun to hold them all in place...this is a bit tricky because if you aren't careful, the crayons will want to melt.  I placed the hot glue down on the paper, waited just a bit for it to cool some and then placed a crayon bit on top of it, doing each crayon one at a time.  It goes pretty quick :)  I then added in the chipboard "learn", "discover", and "grow" flags using foam squares and placed the fabric stars under my word art!

I bought a document frame from a discount store (so it would hold the 8-1/2" x 11" paper).  The glass really secures those crayons in place!

We have a lot of teachers for each of my kids, so next I went with a simple yet handy teacher gift - Pencils in a tube :)

Fabric stars layered over a Clear Cut shape makes for a fun title!

I punched Hannah's name out of the Practice your ABC's paper, layered and inked them for extra depth.

Where did you get the tubes!? I am student teaching and the kids NEVER have sharpened pencils, this is a great gift for me to give them...mostly for my cooperating teachers sake, ha ha ha!

Hi Tina! I believe those are SRM tubes...I got them at my local scrapbook store, but I think SRM Stickers carries them online too! Great idea to gift to the students!
