Girls dorm room decor with a sporty twist!

My gorgeous niece is heading off to college in a few weeks.  She was lucky enough to get a room assignment with someone she knows and they have been busily planning room decor for awhile...  While we were out one day during her visit, she spied a cute paper wall hanging and was thinking she wanted one!  Well, they were a display item made to show case the craft product, not for sale... BUT of course I have the technology! No problem! I can totally do this and we can customize it to the colors they have chosen to decorate with!  Hooray! Here is what we came up with...
You see, after we had the super cute bright pink striped paper and the dark brown border all picked out (similar to what we saw in the store...)  I had dreams of beautiful 3D flowers and butterflies... She says "How about Softballs and Volleyballs?"  WHUT?  You're killing me here!  Really???  Okaaaaaayyyy....
So for this project I used my Cricut Expression and glue, add in a touch of ribbon and that's it!
Even sans the flowers and butterflies, I think that the sporty version turned out adorable!  The stripes ended up the perfect background paper!
  • Cricut Art Philosophy for the base, border and name plate.
  • Cricut Lite Cartridge Cherry Limeade for the font
  • Cricut Everyday Paperdolls for all of the sports accessories! Easy peasy!
  • I used some pop up foam for many of the pieces to give it dimension and my metallic gel pens to add some detail to the balls. 

Now wait until the matching chalkboards up next! SO excited!
Have a fabulous weekend!
