"Friends" Wall Art



This project started as Kaiser Craft wood puzzle pieces, the paper is Urban Lily (don't quote me!) and Kaiser Craft rub-ons, embellished with ribbon and flowers, distressed with sand paper and acrylic paint. A cute project for kids to make and hang on their wall.

enjoy!

Quickie Teen Project



This project started as a Kaiser Craft mini book kit with 4 panels of pressed board, I covered each panel with decorative papers, then placed all 4 onto one large sheet of paper so the back would stay stationary and hang better.

Then I sewed the panels through punched holes with eyelash fibers and made a handle, hand cut letters outlined with Ranger Stickles and a large flower at the middle with more stickles in the center.

Easy peasy wall art, fun for teens to make, they could use pictures of friends or other words too!
