G'day Mates! In preparation for Mama Mayhem's birthday, I have created her a small gift...shhh don't tell. Earlier this year I was inspired to make a country outline of the Czech Republic to display in my house to remind me of the weeks Mr. Mayhem and I spent there teaching at an English and sports camp.
You can also see our model of the cathedral in Brno and Mr. Mayhem's Czech beer mug. (the vases have no connection to the Czech Republic)
Mama Mayhem has more a place in her heart for Australia having lived there for a year. So I decided it would be a charming reminder for her of her days spent down under to do an Australian outline.
The supplies I used + some tape I forgot to put in the picture.
Tape the outline to some contact paper and start cutting.
Press the edges down to seal.
At this point I would like to mention that in the Czech Republic version above I used spray paint and it was much more successful. This worked, but if you can, I would use spray paint.
When the paint is dry carefully pull away the contact paper to reveal your beautiful design!
**Sorry the pictures are so dark; my craft room is in the dungeon.
