Blank artist’s canvas
Vintage rick rack
Pictures from old children’s books
Scissors / Paper Cutter
|sheet of scrapbook paper – various colors/prints|

The key is to layer and layer and layer the canvas with pieces and strips of scrapbook paper coating each side and seam with magical mystical Mod Podge. The more layers the richer and more interesting the finished piece.
Note: This project isn’t exclusive to baby gifts…I made the following piece with drawings of my puppies and pages about dogs from vintage books. Favorite sports team is another fun theme. You are limited only by your imagination.
