Fun Photo Wall Art


Instead of continuing to hoard my Heather Bailey scrapbook paper, I decided to make this wall art. Here's how:

1. Take two pieces of square scrapbook paper -- I used 12 x 12 inch paper. Cut both sheets into equal 2 inch strips.

2. Weave the strips of paper together and then glue down the loose ends with glue dots, a tape runner or a tiny bit of glue.

3. I printed out a square photograph on cardstock for a super-matte look and glued it the center of the woven paper with glue dots.

4. Add embellishments. I applied a ric-rack frame, two paper flowers I cut out and a button with Aleene's Tacky Glue.

5. Frame in a square frame, scrapbook page frame or LP frame. I used my Michael's coupon to get this one. Voila!

And I am impressed with myself when I just stick a picture in a frame. I guess not anymore. You are so talented and smart.

I LOVE this! I have some great photos from vacation, but they came out a funny size (long story) and don't quite fit in a 4x6 frame. I was so mad, because I really wanted to display them. Now I know exactly what to do!

I liked it, you can find more modern art from spacify.

How cute! I too have a scrapbook paper hoarding problem. You'll soon see me on a Lifetime channel documentary. . . being dug out from under the stacks!
