The best thing about doing this is the cost! It was right at $10 for a 36X48 print!
This is what it looked like after being printed at Fedex. I needed to trim a little, but I loved it!
My next step was to attach it to my display board. I knew that would be tricky since it's so big. I decided to do it in sections. Which meant measuring and cutting each "panel", then attaching with spray adhesive.
So off to the deck I went to avoid any over spray. I ended up with this. I burnished the image with a Pampered Chef scraper!
I then did the two fold sides. (Didn't take a picture of that, but you get the idea.
This was my finished display before adding pictures.
As you can tell, there were sections of "white" on the edges. I knew I needed to get rid of them and decided cutting them with the band saw would be quicker than using an exacto, but you could do either if you had the same problem.
Next, I added pictures down the side.
* OH! One thing I forgot to mention is the great font that I used for my daughter's quote. It is called Bromello from dafont.com. Best of all, it was a free download! I LOVE this font!
