Send Artwork Home Safely

Send­ing stu­dent art­work home can be a per­ilous expe­ri­ence! A project that took hours to cre­ate can quickly get crin­kled or torn by the well-meaning rub­ber band you put around it. You can avoid this prob­lem by keep­ing a sup­ply of card­board tube-rings on hand. Sim­ply cut an empty paper towel tube into rings about 1–1/2″ wide and slip the rolled-up art­work inside. A sin­gle ring will hold art­work securely all the way home!
