I love scrapbooking even though I rarely have time to do it! When I saw this cool idea on Pinterest a while back, my brain started racing. How could I use this in my school counseling office? It wasn’t long before the character traits came to my mind. I already had the frame sitting in my craft room. I bought it two years ago and had never put a single picture in it.
Today, I have had a blast cutting paper and using some of my favorite sticker purchases to make this character trait collage to hang in my office. It was not difficult at all. Here’s how I did it:
I looked through my tub of scrapbooking paper and found a mini kid’s slab of 6×6 papers. There were lots of fun patterns to choose from. Because I was going to add stickers of children on them, I didn’t want the paper choices to be too busy.
After choosing eight patterns, I used my paper cutter and cut each one down to 4×6 which is the size of the frames on the collage. I ended up having to cut another tiny sliver less to get them to fit in though.
I used my favorite letters, which I can’t seem to find ANYWHERE anymore, to make the character traits on each. Four of the pictures are vertical and the other four are horizontal. I added New Kids Stickers by “me and my BIG ideas” which I have had for so long and never used.
Afterwards, I put them in the frames, and I was very pleased with the results. I really like that I can display the frame horizontally or vertically. I’m not sure which one I like best. Which way do you like it?
