unique way to preserve kids' artwork

I shared how we made some state-inspired Christmas tree ornaments a few days ago. Today I wanted to share my inspiration with you!

Design Mom wrote about a shop called The Curiosity Shop a few months ago and I fell in love with this little beauty....

It's cut from a paint-by-numbers canvas and I thought it was beautiful. I've been thinking of how I could recreate it and this is what I came up with! I think that once Juliet starts painting landscape scenes, I'll mod podge one of those onto some cardboard and cut another few. A series of these would be beautiful--and I'd have an nice record of her art over the years in a fun format.

Here it is next to the kitty so you can see how big it is in real life...

I've toyed with the idea of making a few of these as gifts for grandparents--just trying to think of the perfects shape for them.

What shape would you do?

I mentioned this book the other day Puzzle Maps USA by Nancy L. Clouse. Every time we read this page, Juliet says, "I made that!"

Linking to these parties...
