Clip to ScrapBook #1

I bought a tri-fold display board, the kind that are usually used for science project displays, to cover in felt and put velcroed words on. My question is: What is the best way to attach the felt to the board? staple, glue gun, spray adhesive? Maybe I should just spray paint it? Who out there has experience that can share?

No staples!

I stapled something on one time and the staples went through the board. Lots of scratches there! When I used a board like that, I just glued my words straight to the board. They peeled off easily to reuse the next year. Good Luck!

Could you simply spray paint it and then put on velcro dots/squares to attach your words?

I made one last year with a tri-fold board. My tri-fold was blue so I didn't have to cover it. I put the letters of the alphabet on library pockets and laminated them. I slit the openings on the library pockets and glued each pocket to the tri-fold board to hold the words. We were required to have an interactive word wall in addition to our regular one. My students used it as a work station.
You can just use velcro dots. Put one part of the velcro directly on the tri-fold board and the other part on the back of your vocabulary words if you decide not to use the felt. I used velcro dots on my work station rotation board.

The experts have spoken. Spray painting and velcro dots, it is, then. Thanks.
