*I used strips of butcher paper scrunched up to make the border (my FAVORITE borders).
*I had to track down a gas station that sells maps to cut out the letters. BTW- Finding maps is much harder than I thought! I think craft stores have scrapbook paper that look like maps, but I leave 45mins from the nearest craft store.
*That bottom left corner is a file folder full of registration forms.
*The leaves - I saw a template of the leaves here. I did not have the right stuff downloaded on my computer so I eyeballed the leaf and made my own.
I also have a board on Pinterest with my VBS pins if you are interested in more of what I have found so far.
