- Scrapbook Paper of choice: 12-inch x 12-inch (9 sheets of heavier weight)

Arrange scrapbook papers on foam sheet; try different arrangements until satisfied with design. Adheare one side of Terrifically Tacky Tape to sheet in strips, making sure to have tape on each edge. Remove backing to tape. Adhere 12-inch x 12-inch paper over tape in pattern desired. Repeat until all foam sheets are covered.
Cut ribbon into three equal lengths. Pin or glue ribbon around edges of foam sheet, overlapping ends. (Hint: STYROFOAM brand foam is very forgiving. If the paper square does not exactly meet the edges of the foam sheet, run the edge of the foam square along a tabletop, compressing the foam.)
Use level and poster adhesive to secure squares to wall as shown. Or, glue sawtooth picture hanger to back. For additional hold, insert and glue two straight pins through holes in sawtooth picture hanger.
Let dry before hanging.
Use photo as a guide and follow manufacturer’s instructions for all products used.
While the glue is still wet, your paper might appear wavy; as the glue dries, the paper will smooth out. If you prefer, you can also cover the edges of your foam sheet with acrylic craft paint.
