How to turn a ripped canvas into a light up photo montage

by

I bought a huge canvas from Hobbycraft a while ago for an art project and was left heartbroken when I found a rip in it after storing it, maybe a little too carelessly, in my garage. I didn’t want to just throw it away though and it remained in my garage for a couple of years before I finally sorted everything out and found it again. We had a great idea to upcycle it with a string of battery powered fairy lights we found alongside the mess!

A bit risky but totally worth it in the end, I cut some extra holes into the canvas and poked fairy lights through the holes. It looks awesome all lit up although it was hard to capture that in the photo (Excuse the background…it’s so big I had to take a picture of it on my drawing table with my gift wrap rack in the back!).

DIY paper covered clipboards

If, like me, you have hundreds of papers and receipts piling up in an unsightly mess on your desk, why not create a place you can put them to make everything just a little bit more organised.

I bought some clipboards with the idea of organising my receipts and paperwork so that I know where they are and what I need to do with them. I have a clipboard for receipts for each business I run and one spare for general paperwork. Receipts that have been put on my bookkeeping system have a big tick on the front and then I’m supposed to file them…but that doesn’t happen. Then I thought, if the clipboards were a bit prettier, maybe I’d be more inclined to sort my paperwork to reveal the prettiness underneath!
