Design On A Dime - College Dorms (Wall Art!)
I recently saw an easy DIY blog post at How About Orange showing how to create beautiful, yet budget friendly wall art. Today, I sat down and created my own version of this art piece (above). I plan on taking this as a surprise (well, surprise officially ruined, as she reads my blog) for my sister when she moves into her college apartment this weekend.
To create the project, I used one-sided patterned craft paper. I cut out (32) 5x5inch squares, (16) would make one finished art piece. I then folded each square using the technique below:

After using the simple folding technique, I used roll-on adhesive to stick each folded square to a large piece of cardboard. I plan on attaching it to the wall with a couple Command Strips!
I already had this paper sitting around the apartment, so this project was free for me. Dig through the items you have laying around!
