I had a sample piece of wood laminate (from my last shopping trip to SCRAP) and it happened to fit perfectly into one of my unfinished frames. I was looking for a project for a while and stumbled upon this PIN on Pinterest showing a framed giraffe silhouette cut from decorative paper. It sparked many ideas and I began sketching them out. I happened to need a bit of wall art for my bathroom, so I landed on the idea of a sand dollar. Instead of using decorative paper, I decided to make the sand dollar out of felt with a bit of embroidery detailing. I painted the frame a nice aqua color and then glued the finished piece to the wood laminate backer. In very little time, I now have a nice piece of handmade art for my bathroom wall.
