So, there’s a price to pay for being a lover of cutesy polka dots, monograms, and patterns. You tend to see them everywhere and want everything.
Last year, my dorm walls were as barren as the Arctic so I had to come up with something to spruce them up and bring some life to the room. All I had was some old black and white patterned wrapping paper, three cardboard inserts from some boxes I’d received my textbooks in, and some pink ribbon I’d saved from a class project.
The wrapping paper was reversible and, on the other side, was a solid hot pink. So, I printed out a full page of each letter of my initials and placed each over the pink wrapping paper before cutting them out. I then covered each cardboard insert with the black and white pattern, making sure to tape them securely to the back.
I then taped each of the initials to their prospective decorated board and then decided it still needed something. So, I took my ribbon and wrapped it around the edges of each, taping those at the back also. After that, I taped some more ribbon to hang the pieces with and got this wonderful result!
