Gift Bag Journals

Do have heaps of old gift bags sitting around your house like I do? Here's a great project that requires a gift bag, some duct tape and a few brass fasteners. Gift bag journals are perfect for students to write in, and can be hung on hooks on students' desks, or on a bulletin board. For a full tutorial of how to make a gift bag journal, visit my blog, Teaching In the Early Years, by clicking on the image below.

See you there!
