I did this project about 2 weeks ago and haven’t posted about it yet! I had been in Boston with my office and hadn’t done something crafty in a while, so I did this Sunday evening after returning:) My husband thought I was crazy and that I should just relax Haha! I saw an idea a while back about printing on tissue paper and I was itching to try it…the post I had seen she had printed pictures of her family and glued them onto a wooden sign for Christmas!
I started with something simple and found pictures of antique/vintage bicycles on google images. I copied them into Microsoft word and sized them down to fit in my frame. The tricky part is taping the tissue paper to card stock, I took the cardstock and cut it to 8.5×11 then taped the tissue paper along the edges. I was so afraid it was going to get jammed that’s why this part is so important to really secure your tissue paper. I used a light blue tissue paper so you can see the color contrast with the white mat. After I printed all my bicycles I put them in the frame and voila! cheap DIY wall art Yay! I love how wrinkled the tissue paper looks, I might wrinkle it even more the next time!
