    Make a poster dedicated to your heroine. Carefully separate the seams of a large, recycled cereal box so it unfolds into one cardboard piece. Trim the edges with Crayola® Scissors. Hold the cardboard so the short sides are at top and bottom. Accordion-fold the top half of the cardboard.

    Write your hero's name and accomplishments on the accordion folds in large, bold letters using Crayola Gel Markers. Fill spaces with designs and patterns.

  • 5.

    Attach pictures of your heroine to the bottom half of the cardboard using a Crayola Glue Stick. Add your own designs and colors to the picture with markers. Write inspirational words around the pictures.

    Punch holes along the sides of the top half of the cardboard. Punch holes in the bottom flap, too, one on each side.

  • 7.

    Thread string or ribbon through the holes on both sides of the cardboard from the bottom to the top. Tie the ends of the cords. Hang your poster to be inspired by Women Right Now.
