First of all, I can't take credit for the scrapbook paper idea. I saw it years ago on a blog...before Pinterest darn it and now I can't find that blog. (if anyone knows, please message it to me so I can give them credit.) Anyway, I bought two packs of this beautiful scrapbook paper at Joann's (on sale of course) - cost $20. I then purchased glue dots - you read that right. However, I QUICKLY learned that glue dots are not strong enough - word to the wise, use ZOTS brand glue dots, also at Joann's. I used seven dots per sheet, one in each corner, one in the middle of two sides, and one in the very center. They are holding up quite nicely.
I added the Chinese lanterns from Christmas Tree Shoppes - I paid $5 for all of them.
|See...needs curtains. Those bins are from Wal-Mart and are a great way to store toys. The kids can quickly throw everything in...as you can see in the picture.|
