Fussy and Fancy DT Project - Back to School

We have a new challenge for you today at Fussy and Fancy, this time our theme is "Back to School".  The schools in Inverness went back on Tuesday, I can't believe how quickly the holidays flew by this year.  My husband is a depute head in a primary school, it's a teaching post though, so for my DT project, I decided to make a hanging sign for his classroom door.
I used the largest of my Spellbinders grand circles to create the sign, and decorated it with some ancient 12x12 school themed papers.  The cute little bird id a digi, but I can't remember where he came from, he's been coloured with my usual Promarkers.  The giant pencil was simply made from pieces of cardstock, with a computer generated name tag stuck on.  So that the sign could be hung up, I set two eyelets near the top, then tied on some cord in a loop, using slip knots.
My husband was rather pleased with it, even though it says "math" instead of "maths" on the textbooks!  Apparently, he teaches in Scotland, not America.
I'm entering this project in the following challenges -
