Handprint art.  Oh the ways we've all seen it in the school auctions, eh?  I'm partial to sunflowers as it's the Kansas state flower.  #SchoolAuctionClassArt

Made this classroom project for our school auction. Each child (preschool) chose a color and printed several times (6-8) within the penciled outline of the dove. Afterwards, I outlined the dove & the branch in black Sharpie and added "Peace" underneath. Everyone loved it!!

school auction art project, the white paper butterflies are from Etsy. Created the poster in PSE and printed on lustre photo paper at Costo. Attached the butterflies with double side tape. Each kid's name was written in fine tip Sharpie by their butterfly. Under the quote (but blurred out), you can add the teacher's name, school name, city and school year.

This is a great idea for your next silent auction.  We are seeing more and more of our Handbid customers implementing this.  You can set up the wine wall with a set of corks that users can buy right from the app and redeem them for a mystery bag of wine.  Mix in some more expensive wines with some cheaper ones and make it fun.    At the Heritage Elementary school auction on Handbid, their wine wall sold out within minutes.
