Sending artwork home

I have a question for all you teachers out there. I am student and have
been on this list for a while now. In our "art for elementary" class,
we made portfolios at the beginning of the semester using a crayon
resist lesson. They were about 16x18 in size and we put all of our
"artwork" in them until the end of the semester. My question is: Have
any of you tried this with your kids in class? It was a great way of
keeping all of our stuff together, and protected. I know when my 7 yr
old brings his work home every week, it is usually crumpled up in his
backpack. I think they would enjoy gathering their art this way, but
being inexperienced in the actual classroom, I didn't know if it would
really work. (Or if you had a place to store all these) Sorry, I'm
rambling. Oh well, any feedback would be appreciated.

Thank you,
Mary from Texas -- where the smoke is finally starting to clear!!!
