Binder Paper Painted Rocks for Graduation
Designed by Ana Araujo
My friend, Germaine, is a high school teacher. She wanted to do something for her students for graduation. We’ve been collecting rocks on the beach and I thought that we could paint them. She wanted them to say “Believe in yourself.” We thought that binder paper would be a cool look for the students. This turned out to be an easy project as I sat next to her to guide her throughout the process. And, of course, I had to stop Germaine at each step to take photos so I could share this project with you! Get Your Rock On!
- Once the paint is dry, take a light blue Sharpie, draw a line with a straight edge. (We used the edge of the maker packaging.)
- Straight edge line.
- Continue drawing lines to fill white painted space.
- With a red Sharpie draw a vertical line about 1/2″ from edge. (This is a judgment call for each rock is different.)
- Draw a second vertical line about 1/8″ apart.
- Finished fax binder paper.
- Turn rock over, paint one white stroke.
- Draw 2 blue lines and the red vertical lines.
- With black sharpie write “Believe in yourself.”
- Follow step out for how-to create the heart.
- When heart is dry, turn over the rock and sign it. (Germaine signed her name with 2016.)
- She put the rocks in canvas bags with each of her students name on the bag!
