Up-cycling childrens artwork to make a card

A member of the family had their Wedding Anniversary so we decided to make them a card. This is a great way to up-cycle the paintings that have been done and some old cards that we had in the house.  First of all I took a painting that Little Boo had done previously. I made a view finder out of some card to select a suitable section of the painting.

The viewfinder used to select the pieces of the painting.

The pieces of painting cut up and placed on the card.

Little Boo helped with the sticking!

Little Boo chose some pictures that she liked of the couples wedding no surprise that the cake was one picture!

. The completed card!
