Crafting munchkins

I have used a giant frame to display the beautiful artwork by my little munchkins.  I posted about it here.  Now I need the wall space where that is hanging for something else.  I don't have another free spot to hang that giant frame, so I came us with my own little creation.  
I wanted to move their art display to their toy area anyway.

I really wanted to use a piece of wood to make this, but I used what I had.  Eventually I'll probably make it with wood instead of cardboard :).  For now I cut up this long box as my base. (Note the random cow puzzle piece on the floor.)

I am so bad at remembering to take pictures for each step as I work!  I will get better at that!  I covered my long piece of cardboard with paper from a roll of drawing paper.  I just wrapped it like a present.  I used my cricut to cut out the brackets and the word "create".  I added twine along the bottom, and used clothespins to hang those cutesy works of art! 

I wanted to use the twine instead of just attaching the clothespins to the board so that I wouldn't have to worry about the spacing of the pictures (if that makes sense?). 

For now I like it.  I change my mind so often who knows what I'll want to do with it by next week!

Great job! I love using cardboard for things, because it's FREE! I love the font you used for the {create} too! :)

I love this idea. Something I will have to keep in mind once Cole is older and can display his pictures!!
