Mirror, Mirror on the gallery wall.

Yeah, I totally made that. On my own. Without a tutorial.

Late last night I got the crafting bug, and pulled out some of my stash. (Side note: I just had to google stash to make sure I was spelling it correctly. I think that's the first time I've ever typed it!)

Here's what I came up with. On my own. Without a tutorial. Yeah, I'm quite proud of myself!

Supplies I used:

Printer Paper
Circle Punch (1")
Mirror w/hanger
Craft Clue
Hot Glue/Gun

I have a box of circle mirrors from Target that I'm not using, so I used one of the smaller sized ones, along with the cardboard that it was packed in.

I started by gluing the circles around the outside of the cardboard, and worked my way around in a circular motion until I reached the center. If I was doing it again, I'd lay it out first and pay attention to the numbers so it was totally balanced. But I'm a lazy novice crafter, and even if I thought of that before gluing, chances are good I still wouldn't have done that.

After I had the circles glued to the cardboard I pried the hanger off the back of the mirror using a butter knife. I glued the mirror right on top of the paper circles, and the hanger right to the back of the cardboard.

Super easy and it looks adorable! It's hanging up now on the gallery wall, but it's so dark and dreary outside the photos won't do it justice.

Ah, what the heck, I'll take a better photo another day...I am way too excited to not share this right now!

Total Cost: $0.00
