Wall Hanging - Bind-it-All Style

Start with some amazingly pretty patterned paper from Kiki  Art, adhered to a rockin' sturdy 10X10 piece of Zutter Clipboard Wood.  You can see I left an itty bitty border so the wood would show, and distressed all the edges with ink and paint.

I punched the top edge and laced the holes with a pretty ribbon. I did this first because I wasn't sure what I was going to embellish with so I wanted to make sure I was able to punch the edges before adding anything bulky or glittery that wouldn't fit in the Bind-it-All.
I glittered some old plastic letters to match the paper, and also used some felt ribbon, front and back (glittered the back adhesive side). By the way, this is a great way to use up old supplies - the felt wasn't a color I was going to use a alot of and the letters were the wrong color completely.  So, a bit of glitter and VOILA!

I had these acrylic swirls that I sponged with white paint....and then a bunch of fun texture-y odds and ends to go with my favorite family photo. The paper has adorable little ladybugs, which I punched up with some lady bug buttons I had left over from a baby shower I organized last year. I added the pretty green lace along the bottom edge to soften things up.

Why don't you make something like this for your favorite room?
