February Bulletin Boards

These are two of my February bulletin boards for my classroom. My aide loves frog so I did a board for her and I love giraffes. The children loved them. We pretend we don't like the others animals and they think its funny. Its hard to see in the pictures but both animals have red hearts all over them.

Happy Tooth Card

Here is a card I made for my dentist. I had an emergency last week and he got me right in and even overbooked himself so he could deal with my problem. And now after a 9 months of messing with that tooth, I think its fixed. Yeah. He is so super nice!! The tooth inside is actually while... it looks bluish in the picture. The flowers I put on it are made out of tissue paper. You take tissue paper and layer it between 10-17 layers and use a round punch. Then take and put a stitch in the center to hold them together. Next you take each layer of tissue paper and crunch it up until you get all the layers done. Then gently shape the flower. Easy and they turned out so cute.
   The card base is using the Black Magic paper by core'dinations.   I embossed it and then lightly sanded it.  I like the grunge look of it. Then use the Swiss Dot embossing folder and embossed the gold strip.  I used the tooth on B is for Boy cart and made a row of them.  Thats also where the toothbrush came from.   I finally used the happy faces stamps that I won from Peachy Keen on the teeth.  The green border punch is the loopy one from MS.  The leaves are from the bird punch from SU.
