Turn those scrapbook paper scraps into a work of art!
In less than one hour you can make this one of a kind piece of wall art. I used a 40% off coupon for the canvas and mine cost less than $5. Everything else I used was already on hand.

    You can certainly cut the petals out differently, but this way they are all no longer than the squares you made.

  • Step 7

    Start placing them on the canvas off center. When you are happy with how they look, Mod Podge them onto the canvas, moving down the sides with the petals on the edge.

  • Step 8

    Allow the Mod Podge to dry.

  • Step 9

    Mod Podge over the petals and the entire canvas again. Tuck down any petal edges that are raised, check the edges for petals that did not stick as well.
