Paper

I love him
I've been asked a whole bunch about what kind of paper I use and how I put it up on my walls so I thought I'd let you all know!

My favorite paper to play with is Canson Colorline poster board. They have bright colors and cute names like Canary, Sweet, Snow, Mouse, and Clementine. How could I resist buying paper with such adorable names?
I hang it up on the walls using good ol' masking tape.
Pacman's new home
It doesn't damage the walls and I can change the look of my walls any time I want...
Which is pretty much all the time!

Cheryn said...

I wanna do that to my walls too.. As soon as I get my own place. My parents likes white walls & hates it when I paste or hang anything on the wall. Ah well, they bought the place...
Currently scouting for an apt & thinking of designs!

I was so inspired by your Pacman wall deco that I took my old white pair of keds and my pack of mini sharpies and made two Pacman shoes! If I learn how to upload a photo I will!
Thanks for the inspiration Katie!
