Judy, Do you put the contact paper over the sandpainting? If not, what do you stick the sand to the contact paper with?

  Before taking the protective paper off of the Con-Tact paper, I measure an extra inch on 2 sides, then cut it. This extra in on 2 sides I fold and attach to the 2 sides of the cardboard. This method also gives me the added feature of sliding any color of construction paper background behind the "sticky board." Other teachers I have talked to simply fold the 1 inch extra around to the back side of the cardboard and tape it down. Hope this helps.
