Quick teacher's tip:
Use black lettering as shadows when you want to make words in a display or bulletin board assemblage *POP*:
I cut two sets of matching letters using our die cut press at school out of black and tan construction paper. Carefully placing the black letters down first, I then off-set the tan letters on top of them, and glued them down to the back of a sentence strip. Not liking the blue line that was peeking out from between the letters, I used a white-out pen to erase it... the black "shadow" letters really make the words stand out, don't they?
I'm working on a little pre-Christmas giveaway as well, so stay tuned!
