|My First Tarpapel (3x3)|
But for all you know, they're resourceful. They have invented an economic, do-it-yourself visual aids or the like. And they call it "Tarpapel"
Tarpapel is made of a certain graphic design printed on several pieces of paper and is being patched one by one to form like a poster or streamer. When you look at it in a distance, it resembles to a tarpaulin. It is a do-it-yourself graphic tool for lesson presentation, for attractive bulletin board display, among others.
I had tried making one. For the first time, I created 3x3 "Back to School" poster.
