After seeing this creative DIY project on Remodelaholic I decided to give it a try.
One inch cut paper squares, a canvas, some Mod Podge. Easy right?

Still looking pretty good...
And here's the finished project!
|Can you see the mistake?|
win FAIL! After slaving away on meticulously gluing down each square I soon realized that there was a horrid mistake! By this time it was 1:20am, I was tired, but I had vowed to finish that night. Steven counted and solemnly made me aware that the squares were uneven on the sides. There might have been a few tears...I felt like I used to when I was a kid and I'd stay up late drawing. I'd get so tired and frustrated when I couldn't get the foxes' ears level and my Mom would advise that I go to bed.
I think this finished project looks so neat, and I was super excited, BUT if you take this on, make sure you COUNT! And, make sure you take time to remind yourself that you are not aiming for perfection. I refuse to not use this somewhere in the house-we'll just have to tweak it to cover up the mishap!
