DIY Scrapbook Paper Art

Recently, my best friend and I got together to transform these flea market 8x10 frames ($4 each) into some cute artwork for her little girls’ bathroom:IMG_2900

Our first step was to purchase a pile of cute coordinating scrapbook paper at the craft store:

After deciding on a theme, we drew the shapes on the backside of the paper and cut them out:IMG_2902IMG_2903

We used glue dots to adhere the shapes to the paper and used a sharpie and stick-on crystals to embellish them further. Here’s a close-up of the butterfly:

And all three together:IMG_2905In the newly spray painted frames:IMG_2929IMG_2930

IMG_2932IMG_2934 IMG_2933We did this project for around $20 for all three.  I’ve seen similar ones for sale online for $30 or more each, so that’s quite a savings if you can do it yourself!  This project probably took us a couple hours while gossiping and chatting.

This artwork was the perfect finishing touch for just about the cutest little girls’ bathroom you have ever seen!! I can’t wait to show more in a future post, you are going to love it, I promise!

I’ll be linking up to these parties today, hop on over to see more great projects:

  29. This is just such a clever idea. I like the idea of getting coordinating scrapbook paper, then the work of coordinating colors is done. I struggle with that. Thanks for this post.
