Shout out to Keiran who is after funky borders to put around a white board. She wanted them 6cm depth and enough for 11 metres length.
So here they are:
A4 print size: You'll need to print about 14 pages to get your 11 metres worth.
A3 print size: You'll need to print about 7 pages to get your 11 metres worth.
I don't know how Keiran envisions it, but I'd say to cut the things out and attach them to the white board under fat sellotape or clear contact adhesive, to protect the border. Hmmmm....can see it in my head...

These backpacks were $4 at The Warehouse at a 'back to school' sale. My mate was going back to school to learn Maori so I thought I'd give her something to take her lunch in. (Lunch boxes ain't big enough lol)
Armed myself with a Black Sharpie and got practicing Koru Art Lessons
Started on the top, front, top of pocket, front of pocket...
...then the shoulder straps...
... = a lunch box to be jealous of.
Of course I made one for myself (selfish thing that I am) and took it as hand luggage on the plane when I went to Oz (no I didn't have my lunch in it). Got lots of friendly 'hello's from Kiwis while over there....nice!
A big shout out to Renee who leads a Canadian Girl Guide Brownie group. I'm really sorry these got here late - but here they are nonetheless.
A mock-up of what they might look like. You can make them plain (one-sided)....
Maori Bookmark Page 1...or make them double-sided... Just print and cut lengthwise as shown in the mock-up.
