Fluorescent neon paper or sign board works great as a poster board component because contrasting neon colors are easily seen from a distance.  You can add visual interest to presentations, such as that for a science fair project, by using neon paper to highlight different parts of your board.  You can also spruce up a sign for an event like a career fair by printing the company name on neon paper.  In doing so, interested viewers could easily locate the booth in a crowded environment.  Furthermore, neon paper is perfect for creating holiday-related displays and documents.  If you’re having a bake sale or a charity fundraiser, draw folks to your table by creating some festive neon paper flyers to give participants a clear idea about the goals of your event.

Try using neon paper in your next project, along with Royal Brites poster board, foam board, or other board supplies to make a memorable display.

How to Craft a Pencil Pinwheel

Pencil Pinwheel  How to Craft a Pencil Pinwheel

You need:
•    Colored card stock 
•    Thumbtack or stick pin
•    Pencil with eraser
•    White craft glue
•    Scissors
•    Sequins
•    Pattern 

How to make it:
1.    Print the pattern onto plain copy or printer paper. 
2.    Cut the square pattern out, cutting on the solid lines. 
3.    Lay pattern on top of colored paper and trace the square. Cut out the square from the colored paper. 
4.    Keep the pattern square on top of the colored square. Either hold it in place with your fingers or tape it down lightly on two of the sides. 
5.    Cut through the pattern and the colored paper along the dotted lines but do not cut in to the center circle. 
6.    Use a thumbtack or stick pin to poke out the holes in every other corner as indicated on thepattern . Set the pattern piece aside. 
7.    Take one corner (one with a hole) and fold it toward the center of the square. Fold the next corner that has a hole and fold it toward the center on top of the first holed corner. Repeat with the other two corners with holes until all four are folded into the center. Glue the folds to each other and to the center. Hold together until dry. 
8.    Push the thumbtack through the center of the pinwheel and into the eraser of the pencil. Make sure the pinwheel isn’t touching the eraser or it won’t spin. 
9.    Glue some sequins to the flaps of the pinwheel and let dry.

•    You can use plain white paper and have children color with crayons or markers to decorate before cutting out the pinwheel pattern.
•    Decorate with lightweight items such as sequins and stickers or glitter glue. Items like buttons and craft jewels are too heavy.
•    If the pinwheel isn’t turning properly, try using a longer stick pin rather than a thumbtack to allow more room between the pinwheel and the eraser.
