Scrapbook Paper Signs

Scrapbook Paper Signs

Do you ever go shopping in an arts and crafts store and see something that you absolutely didn’t need and you bought it anyway?

Yep…all the time…

Well, on a certain trip to a certain Hobby Lobby with a certain mother of mine (you know who you are), my certain mother HAD to stop in the scrapbooking aisle.  Not that I didn’t want to stop in the aisle, but it’s for the purpose of the story.  So as we looked down the aisle, we both realized that some of the 12 by 12 paper was really cute.

And that’s when I realized that I was going to purchase some of these cute pieces of paper.

I bought 2 turquoise and 2 white papers to use.  I wanted to hang them on a wall in the living room at the apartment, so I had to find something to hang them with.  So, continuing thought the certain Hobby Lobby with a certain mother of mine, we found cork board that I could put the paper on.

So the cork board came with stickers to put on the back that would attach to the wall.  I liked this because then I didn’t need any other hangers.  I then hung the paper on the cork board with gold tacks that I had left over from my push pin art.  So, with one pin on each corner, the pictures were hung on the wall.

And here’s the finished product!

I love how the pictures look.  I know that deer and arrows are all in right now, so it worked perfectly, along with the words Love and Hello.  It looked great on the wall and I love the pop of color.  Now…if only I can get them to stay on the wall…

    You took 4 of my favorite things(gold, deer, turquoise, arrows) and made them into art! And, I have never left a craft story without wondering what on earth possessed me to buy something I wasn’t sure I needed. Try some 3M strips…they’ve held everything in place at my house and in my camper even with my boys banging into walls and all. Thanks so much for stopping by to share your post at the Best of the Weekend Link Party!
