I wanted to make something fun for my mother for her birthday. I wanted to give her something that I made, but not just a card or a mini book. So with this in mind I made a cute little wall hanging for her. The picture is of my son Brandon when he was 18 months old, my mother took the picture. The squares are 3 x 3 inches and holding them together is hemp string.
The top square is made of cardboard, then the bottom two are chipboard. I played around with some mixed media Gellato paints from Faber Castelle that I got at a CKC convention class for the top square and some gesso and patterned paper for the middle square. I did not put any pictures on on the back of the hanging, but you most certainly could and make it two sided.
I hope this inspires you to make a fun little gift for someone special!!
