DIY Project: Art as a Present

In a few weeks time, I'm starting a new job. This was something that I didn't actively seek out, but fell in my lap. I wasn't looking to leave my current team but the opportunity was too good to pass up, so I had to take it.

To thank my current manager for all the time and effort she has put into developing my career, I decided to make her a piece of art to symbolise the caterpillar turning into a butterfly and leaving the cocoon.

This project was super easy and only took about 20 minutes (excluding the time taken to gather supplies). I got my inspiration from Sixty-Fifth Avenue, via Pinterest (of course!)

Target photo frame (make sure you get a shadow box)
Bunnings paint chips
White cardboard
Cheap mounting tape

Very happy with the end result. I just hope the recipient likes it too!
