For the creative-spirited soul, here is an idea from my own daughter’s dining room.
With 12 of our notecards, she has made a timepiece.
She mounted each sketched card on a block of wood. Before the mounting, 1-inch thick pieces of wood were cut to the exact size of the cards. She painted the cut-edges of the boards a variety of fun colors such as lilac, lime green, yellow, pink, etc. She decoupaged the cards onto the face of the boards and placed a picture hanger on the back side. After arranging them in a circle in an aestheticly pleasing fashion, she hung them on her dining room wall. In the center, she used the recycled hands and works of an old battery-operated clock to tell the time. Voila! Her self-designed timepiece has its place on the wall.
I enjoy hearing about the unique ways our cards can fit into someone’s life. See the selection of cards available in our store. Happy creating!
