D.I.Y. Step

The Today show featured this great idea on the 10 o'clock hour. I thought what a wonderful idea it would be as a photo wall at a wedding. A few black and white photos and you have some great, inexpensive, personal decor. Although not just wedding decor but for those tweens and teens that like change things up all the time, just switch the photos and you can have a whole new look. Hope you love this quick diy idea as much as I did.

Items needed:
-photographs (best if you cut down a 5x7 print)
-jewel cases
-cardboard or foam board
-a ruler
-tape (double sided)
-Velcro tape

To assemble:
1. Remove the plastic inside of CD case and all paper inserts
2. Using the paper inserts as a template cut your cardboard/foam board to size, this will be used as photo backing
2. Trim your photos to size, should be 5 3/8 x 4 5/8
3. Attach the cardboard to the backside of photo using the double sided tape
4. Put the photo in the backside of the jewel case, facing outward, close jewel case
5. Affix piece of Velcro to the side of the case with no photo, affix other side of Velcro to the wall where you want to place photo
6. Attach to wall and presto artwork
