Hey Girlfriend

By:

Keep your girlfriends close to you in this photo wall art. It's an easy and crafty design you can do together. You can trade or keep your own, but you can each have one!

Materials:

  • STYROFOAM™ Brand Foam:
    • 1" x 12" x 36" sheet, one
  • Photos: 10" x 10", two
  • Scrapbook paper: 12" x 12", two sheets
  • Ribbon, 1" x 3 yds.
  • Ruler
  • Sharp pencil
  • Serrated knife and old candle; or, dental floss
  • Thick, white craft glue
  • Straight pins (optional)
  • Sawtooth picture hangers, three

Steps:

(Note: Instructions are for two, 10" x 10" photos; however, you can easily use the techniques below to create wall art for photos of different sizes. Your local office supply store or an online photo developer can print the photos for you.)
 

  1. Using ruler and pencil, score foam sheet to create three, 12" x 12" squares. Wax serrated knife with an old candle. Holding foam sheet firmly on a flat surface, extend one end and cut across score line, using knife like a saw. Or, try dental floss: stand the sheet on its edge, and hold a 20" length of dental floss along the scored line, positioning one hand at the bottom of the board and the other at the top; draw the dental floss down through the foam sheet along the scored line. Save one foam square for another use.
     
  2. Spread white craft glue on foam square; center and glue scrapbook paper to foam square. The scrapbook paper will "frame" the photo and serves as the photo matt. Spread glue on reverse side of photo; center and adhere to scrapbook paper. Repeat with remaining photo.
     
  3. Pin or glue ribbon around edges.
     
  4. Glue sawtooth picture hanger to back. For additional hold, insert and glue two straight pins through holes in sawtooth picture hanger.
     
  5. Let dry before hanging.
