Hello friends! Happy Friday! It's Jennifer on the blog to share a fun home decor project I created with one of the Wood Puzzle Shapes from Clear Scraps! Most students are back to school (in some form or another) so I decided to document my kids' photos from last year! Using the Square Wood Puzzle Shape as my background, I created a layout that would be fun to display every fall!
I began by covering each puzzle piece with patterned paper using my Beacon 3-in-1 Adhesive. I also covered my Square Wood DIY Frame as well in the cute blue gingham pattern. I then cut away excess paper with scissors as well as used an x-acto knife and sanding tool. I distressed each piece with brown chalk ink before adhering together.
After adding my photos, I adhered my title cut from the Silhouette with red cardstock. I like how it pops against the black and white print!
I utilized the Wood Square to hold my journaling which I typed on my electric typewriter and white cardstock. I also added a stamped date at the bottom. The entire piece was adhered with my Beacon 3-in-1.
For added dimension, I layered coordinating buttons from my stash across the bottom of my photos. This is a great way to give your project some depth as well as use up those buttons!
Lastly, I used my Big Bite hole punch to thread ribbon at the top of my Puzzle in order to hang my creation.
