T

This was an idea I saw in a book from the library (decorating with papercraft by Clare Youngs). I thought it would be a great addition to our sunroom, which I dream about decorating with maps and stuff. I cut a "T" with my Cricut, and used it as a template to cut two T's from cardboard. Then I used strips about 1.5 inches wide to space the two T's apart. I used masking tape to hold it all together.
Then I took maps from a stash I have had for ages, and tore them apart and Modge Podge-d them all on. I covered it with a clear coat of acrylic spray and put it right on top of the TV cabinet.
Now to get some fun maps for the walls, so it will match something! Maybe on my upcoming vacation where I'll brouse through antique stores for days.....ahhhhh.......

That turned out really cool. Kids could pick their "favorite" things and make one of their initial...like a "me collage" -- they love doing stuff about their favorites.

I like this very much! I did a set of initials like this for my mom and dad, Mike, and Dustin a couple of years ago, using patterned papers that seemed to suit them. :) Love the maps!!

Thanks tcmoniz for the kind words. Great Idea Jnet to let the kids make this with their favorite things. Maybe when the kiddos are a little older....
