Showing off some art.


Hey cuties,
So this is more of a mummy post but I guess it could come in handy for some of you. As a mummy I like to let chibi bean express her creative side, I think its cute.
We do pens, paint, make and crafting, but it was getting to the point where I could no longer display her pieces of art on the fridge. Not only that my magnets were starting to give up as chibi bean was putting piece after piece of art up on top of each other. I found while making a cup of tea I could no longer find a way into the fridge. I started to look for some ideas on the internet a way to display her cute art with out pinning it on the walls or the fridge.There was a lot of ideas but I found one which was like a huge sheet of plastic that had been set up into pockets to put drawing and even photos into it. For displaying and you hung it over a door or on the wall.But it cost quite a bit!



But I looked at it again and was like ...wait are those just not like multi polly pockets you would have in a folder! (light turns on above my head.)
So I grabbed a few of my old file pockets and stuck them together..haha that simple!

So you get the idea here are a few photos of our Kawaii Art displaying ideas.



I made 2 sets with 4 pockets each and tied on some string to hang them.
There is also a string with baby pegs with some of our photo's of family in the middle. Also a idea that can display photos or pictures. You can find cute pegs from Hobby craft .

It was really easy to do , Just some sticky tape and stick them together. You can hang these up anywhere.
We spend a lot of time up at the table so that's why we put it here.
Also I got a Cake stand for Christmas and I felt it was a bit to pretty to only bring out to use for just cakes soo..


As you can see it had become a bit of a display for all the pens in the pot , a home for Kitty and Mimmy and a place to keep the buttons. Yes our buttons go missing a lot so this is home for them...but they only stay there if I place them there. If some one else has...it can become a interesting game of find the buttons. 
So I guess you could apply the idea to Posters or other pictures, maybe even penpal letters or something.
Maybe you might want to make different sized pocket holders and tape them in different shapes.

Hope you like the post!
