Super cute! You could make smaller ones one smaller canvases for quick gifts. Also, you could make ANY animal and their habitat. I tried bears in a forest (trees) and it was SUPER cute

this is awesome. I've done this before but used sheet music, printouts, and an x-acto knife. It came out really cute.
