Thursday's Tutorial from Angi !!

Hello fellow crafters. Angi here from Cokie Pop Paper Boutique. I love to make altered projects. I have a tutorial for you today that can add fun to any room in your home. It's great for gift giving too. only takes 10 minutes to make. How cool is that?

Did you know that Vinyl and Canvas are so fun to play with? Let me show you how...

Here are the materials you will need:

1. Vinyl - I got mine at Michael's Craft Store. Vinyl is also available at Hobby Lobby, Target, Walmart, and your local scrapbook store.

2. Canvas - I also purchased it at Michael's Craft Store. I used a 9" x 12" stretched canvas.

3. Ribbon - I used some with a fun design on it. It's from American Crafts.

I used some fun vinyl from Hip In a Hurry. Love their stuff.

1. Carefully remove the clear backing from your vinyl.
2. Apply it where you'd like on your canvas.
3. Rub the vinyl onto the canvas with a popsicle stick or old credit card to release the air bubbles.
4. Add some fun ribbon or other embellishments.
5. Hang on your favorite wall or give as a gift.

It's a fun easy peasy project that you can even get your kiddos involved in.

Here's how my creation turned out:

I hope you all enjoyed my quick and simple tutorial this week. If you have a vinyl or canvas creation I'd love to see it entered here on one of our weekly challenges at PCS.

Be sure to stop by tomorrow for our Executive Reveal!

Angi, this is such a fun idea for my kids to try for their rooms. They love creating art for their rooms and your idea looks so simple!
