Cleo’s Turn! {another teacher name board}

When her team teacher saw the easy-peasy name board I made for a friend a couple of months ago…

08 just the simplest way to make a teacher name board after

…she wanted one too!

So, just as with the Clifford one, I printed out a little Cleo, which I found using a Google search (since Cleo is smaller than Clifford, her whole body made it onto the board). I tacked her down using a bit of spray glue then brushed on a coat Mod Podge over the entire board and let it dry overnight. Next I recolored and outlined the image using acrylic paint markers.

I wrote the teacher’s name in light pink and “welcome to” and “class” in brighter pink… Notice the appostrophe: it is the brighter pink since it’s not part of Ms. Dinkins, and it goes AFTER the “s.” [Now is a perfect time to direct you to my guide on addressing your Christmas cards with all those pesky plural last names/misplaced apostrophes…]

I cut down a piece of scrapbook paper and glued it to the back, then outlined the seam in cute polka dot washi tape.

And shazam! Another happy (I hope!) teacher!
