Giftwrap Framed Art Collage


I’ve always had a thing for textured /handmade paper goods.When I came across this gorgeous roll of handmade scrap paper in world market-

I knew I wanted it and for 3$ a roll -it was a score!.I wanted to frame it to expose the rich teal and lime colors and the intricate pattern.I’m sure

many of you might have come across various versions of framed art floating around pinterest from here

and giftwrap art

and so on……endless possibilities I tell you.So  my inspiration for this project stems from the  idea of framing inexpensive paper to make beautiful art for the home.


Especially the teal damask with bursts of lime and Fuschia had me at hello!I wanted to use it to as a wall art or display it in some form since I thought the colors would serve as a beautiful accent in my living room.I decided to display it as a collage .I bought four ikea RIBBA frames for 1.99$ each and cut out the pattern from the sheet and popped them into the frames.I was debating between white and brown frames-but I’m so glad-I chose brown-it looks so rich juxtaposed with the teal.Now I have a collage art display for almost 10$.


I’m all ears:-)
