I have been promising a craft since I started this blog two weeks ago and this morning I finally got around to it while procrastinating on studying for chemistry, whoops…
For my first DIY I decided to re-create the “Are You Happy?” chart.
To re-create this you’ll need the following:
– Frame (size is your choice,
I used an old 12 x 12 I had laying around)
– Background paper
– Circle and arrow templates (I made mine)
– Glue, tape, double stick tape or
Herma crafting tape in repositionable
(which is what I used, can be found at Michael’s)
Cut out all circles and arrows. (If you’d like to re-create this using the templates I made leave your e-mail address in a comment at the end of this post and I can send them to you)
Cut background paper to fit into your frame (I didn’t need to cut mine since I used scrapbook paper which is already 12 x 12 like my frame). Next, without using tape, start playing around with placement of the circles and arrows on your background paper. I tried two different layouts and found I liked the second layout the best so that’s what I went with.
Once you’ve got positioning that you’re happy with you can start gluing or taping the circles and arrows.
Once the circles and arrows are glued or taped they can be set into place on the background paper.
Place finished product into frame.
As you can see you’re only 5 easy steps away from re-creating your very own “Are You Happy?” chart.
The last step would be to hang it up for display in your home.
I hope you all will give it a try. Leave a comment below if you have any questions.
