Add beautiful effects to your cut and paste projects! R15303 Retro Pop Paper provides you with a variety of bright colors and eye-catching designs. For this project, our Art Campers decorated painted wave paper with fish cutouts using the Retro Pop Paper. See more below!
First, we supplied our campers with a few fish templates that they could apply to the paper, trace out and cut. We showed them how to fold the paper, and then place the templates, folded, onto the fold line of the Retro Pop Paper.
Once the campers had traced the shape onto the paper, they cut it out.
With the paper unfolded, a fish shape appeared! We tried a variety of different fish shapes. You can see the shapes in the top right.
The backdrop was a sheet of brown craft paper that we had in rolls in our art room. We spread out the sheets and cut them at about 3-4 foot widths, then painted them with blue wavy lines.
Our campers applied a bit of glue to the backs of the fish shapes and pasted them into various positions on the craft paper.
The campers had a lot of space to work with!
All done! Check out all those gorgeous fish designs!
Here’s what another group did. Great work, campers!

Mrs. Knight shows us her beautiful classroom with her detailed photo gallery! One of the photographs shows Mrs. Knight’s take on table numbers!
Mrs. Knight published “Inspiration to Fruition… Thank you!” on August 9, 2013 where she talks about her various inspirations for her classroom.
The table numbers she made were made from our R15303 Retro Pop Paper. Cover a metal table clamp with a folded sheet of Retro Pop Paper! Tape the edges of the paper together to secure. Decorate the front and back of the Retro Pop Paper with black marker–write a letter or a number to organize your students into groups!
Thanks to Mrs. Knight for her post!
