    Very cool! So, can you change out the work that is in the bags? I like that idea. great slide show too. I'll have to learn how to do that.

    Thank you for posting this.

    The back of the bag remains open. You can change the work as often as you like. All you have to do is slip the old work out and add new work. Right now mine has letters from my class last year to my new class. This week I am going to have my kids do a self portrait to put in the quilt.

    This is such a wonderful idea. I am planning on making one. What size bags do you usually go with?

    I am thinking of putting some kind of getting to know you activity in there any ideas?

    I used the 1 gallon bags and spaced them apart 1 inch.

    You could have the students draw a picture of themselves and number each picture. The kids could try to guess each picture and see what student matches what picture.

    Thank you so much! I've heard so much about them, but it was hard to picture. So cute, I'll definately have to try this out in the next few weeks.

    I think this is a great idea! I might use it to display some of our art projects. Thanks for the demo!

    I am not sure. It is pretty sturdy once you put it together. I plan to use it in the hall to display work all year also. I guess I will have to see how it goes!:unsure:

    This is WAY cool...thanks! :cool:
    Isn't the back sticky then or maybe that helps sticking it to the wall.

    I think page protectors would work but think they might be more of a challenge as they are 8 1/2 x 11 or smaller, the baggies would, I think give more options for paper shape. Good luck!

    I put masking tape (it's blue in the photos) on the back. This helped add stability and it made sure the duct tape didn't stick to things and get all dirty.

    Has anyone tried making a quilt yet? I'd love to hear about your experience. My quilt seemed to take forever to put together, but it is so easy to display studen't work and projects. The time it took to put it together was well worth it :)

    What a fantastic idea! I'm doing it - tomorrow! I think I'll put eyelets/grommets in the top so I can hang it on hooks.

    Your slideshow is great, by the way. I hope you don't mind but I posted a link to it in my blog. (The URL is in my profile since I'm too new here to post links.)

    FloridaFreund: I've seen colorful duct tape at craft stores like Michael's, and I think Wal-Mart has it in white.

    I got my duct tape at Wal Mart. There is a variety of different colors to choose from.
