Instead of using scrapbook paper this would be fun to try and paint! DIY Home Decor! Cut into squares. Mod Podge onto canvas squares. Paint sides of canvas a color. Hang and enjoy - many different ways to customize this idea
Paint samples are really cheap (cheaper at Lowes than Walmart). Grab a blank canvas (also cheap), use painters tape to make a design, and buy a size appropriate wooden letter, or smaller letters to make a word, and paint those= Awesome art.
