Adhere number corners to black corners, and adhere to top right and bottom left corners, leaving a small border around the edge.

3. Fussy cut elements from Top of the Class and Teacher Appreciation papers to build bottom right corner cluster. Adhere pieces, overlapping slightly.

4. Use fussy cut elements from Teacher Appreciation paper, Cut Apart Sheets and Creative Cuts, layering over previous pieces, to the left side of your photo. Adhere Creative Cut elements to bottom left corner of photo.

5. Fussy cut pencils from Top of the Class paper and adhere to bottom right corner, using the Wooden Alphabet Embellishments to spell out the grade, in this case I used Prep.
