My sister in law is going on a big European holiday. I thought it would be nice to make her something to get her even more excited about her adventure. All you need to do to make one for yourself or someone else is to find a map of the location and order it to be printed on canvas (any size you choose - although obviously with small details, the bigger the better).
Then get two pieces of foam board to place at the back of the canvas.
Just glue or tape the foam boards to the back of the canvas. I used spray glue.
I then created fun little pin heads for the push pins because she is a big Dr Who fan and I thought it would be fun. I also gave her red yarn to use to connect each location and create a travel route.
If you do not wish to use or print on canvas, many places will print straight on foam board for you, however the push pins won't go all the way through because it is not very thick.
You can get photos printed on canvas at many online printing websites (for example www.snapfish.com) or at most stores that offer photo printing.
Get excited about your next family trip by making your own travel map!
I know I have been MIA for the past two to three weeks... I have had the worst morning sickness, pretty much bed-bound. But yay!! We are having another baby! :) While trying to think of a fun way to spread the joyous news with our family, I decided to make our daughter a t-shirt to wear. I created more options for you so you can also make these adorable shirts.
All you need to do is print the image onto fabric transfer paper, cut it out, flip it over onto a plain t-shirt and iron it on.
We have a milk man who comes twice a week with milk, bread and eggs and sometimes we get some fresh vegetables which arrive in a box with a lid. They leave the box and don't re-use it. In the past I kept the boxes for small things before we moved, now that we have moved I didn't know what to do with all the boxes that were stacking up. I figured that I could turn them into storage boxes for my laundry supplies that didn't really have a home.
I had some blue polka dot contact paper laying around and decided that it would work well in my laundry room.
I started by covering one side carefully.
Then the other.
After a bit of trial and error, I found that the best way to attach the contact paper was to lay in upside down and stick each flipped corner down on a solid surface, then place the side of the box down on top of it.
Front done and open handle covered.
I then cut open the section where there is a handle, attach a book plate and added a label.
It's a perfect fit for my laundry powders, stain removers, etc.
I love the result and am going to cover the others with more contact paper for other storage needs I have around the house.
