Let’s talk about making my patterns your own. I’m all about that! When it comes to your personal or classroom use, you are welcome to change the patterns to suit your needs. The great thing about my patterns is they just give you a starting point. They are a great time saver if you just want to prep them for your kids to make, but you can also change them and add writing prompts, pictures, change color, adjust the size, the list goes on. Today I’m showing you a bulletin board using my Reindeer Cut and Paste where the teacher changed the Reindeer in a very festive and creative way. Let’s just say it’s ADORABLE! I am so happy when I see this, just please keep in mind your welcome to adapt the patterns to suit your needs, you just can not in anyway make a product or sell your “revised” version of my product or patterns nor can you give them away to others. Okay now let’s get to the reindeer and it’s coordinating and super festive bulletin board. Here’s my original Reindeer Cut and Paste pattern.Here are the changes! Photo faces and a red pom-pom nose. How cute!Handprints for the antlers, oh my! Personal touches really can make a project. My daughter brings home SO many projects and ones with handprints always get saved as a keepsake. I like seeing my child’s hands grow through her projects and it reminds me of how little they once were.
I hope this gives you some ideas on how you can change the patterns to make them more interesting. I think they are fab as is, but sometimes adding things here and there makes them more fun (and let’s your kids work with other elements!). Obviously because my patterns are downloadable, you can’t download pom-poms or bells, but I wish you could!
