When my husband and I got married 15 years ago, my mother in law gave me a beautiful handmade quilt as our wedding present. It is bright red and full of texture. Well, I got it a few years later, but that is another story.
The only difference is that instead of family heirlooms, this project is meant to be temporary and moveable. Just like our Khatam Ramadan Window Clings.
Post-it notes in 3 colors
Start cutting out your Post-it notes in rectangle, triangle and square shapes and place the sticky sides on your paper. We saved all the parts of the Post-its that didn’t have the sticky side on them in a baggie for another future project.
Keep cutting and playing around with your design until you are happy with it. Once you feel done, go back over and erase your pencil lines.
Place your masterpiece back in the frame and hang it up on your wall. Here is a close up of ours, doesn’t it look like a patchwork quilt?
If you ever get tired of the design, take down your artwork, remove the Post-its and start over.
And next time you are in Staples or Office Max, look around for other unusual art material. Be sure to stop by A Crafty Arab on Pinterest to see more fun tutorials to make that teach about the Arab world.
