I was Stumbling one day (addicting internet add-on, don't do it if you don't want to waste a HUGE amount of time) and found a really cool picture carved into cardboard. I'm a big fan of decorating with my own art, so I thought I'd give it a try. Here's the result!!

Thanks!

It's super easy. Just print out a picture and trace outlines around where you want the contrast to be. Then cut it up into pieces, and trace the outlines onto the cardboard. (Or if you're super talented, just draw it straight onto the cardboard.) Then, take a knife and cut the shapes you want to highlight into the cardboard, deep enough to cut through the first layer but not the second. Carefully peel off the top layer, and there you go!
