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!
