DIY Wallpaper Scrap Artwork

I fell in love with this wallpaper I was hanging for somebody else so I asked if I could keep some scrap. I had a plan. Well, it's been a couple years and I found this is the closet. I think it's about time I did something with it.
Scrap wallpaper and some ribbon is all you need. Simply cut your wallpaper into strips and start weaving. My pieces are fairly small so I worked on them right side up and simply turned them over carefully when I needed to adjust something.
If you are making larger pieces use cardboard on the bottom, work on it upside down and tape every so often for support. To check your progress use another piece of cardboard on top and flip.
These frames I picked up at a garage sale. I am still considering painting them. I haven't decided yet, but the gold is growing on me.
You could get as creative as you wanted with your design and make them as big as the width of your wallpaper (or larger if you can hide your seams). Wuick, easy and inexpensive.
