This is a project from Mark Montano's "Big Ass Book of Crafts". It's pretty easy to do, and it looks great when you're done! The book says to use postcards but you could also use magazine clippings, photographs, decorative paper, ect. In my case I ended up going through art school catalogs and picking out my favorite pictures.
If you do plan on doing this project, I would recommend glueing cardstock to the back of thin pictures. It helps to keep the paper nice and flat when you are sewing pieces together.
I'll try and get a better picture when the lighting is less weird. :]
The Big-Ass Book of Crafts is packed with ideas for sprucing up your living space; concocting fabulous, all-natural body products; designing your own unique stationery; and creating countless other crafts that will convince your friends and loved ones that you're the secret love child of Martha Stewart (only much, much cooler). Forget crocheted doilies and itchy knit sweaters -- TLC's While You Were Out top designer Mark Montano has created stylish and imaginative projects that range from a Warhol-esque Ultrasuede iPod case to photo-adorned boxer shorts to African mask patio chairs to wooden night-light boxes. Divided into sections that include Outdoorsy (ideas to enhance your backyard), Dishing It Out (decorating plates using different techniques), You've Been Framed...© 2013 Mark Montano / Simon & Schuster · Reproduced with permission.
