Pinterest Challenge: Winter Edition

Well...I have never participated in one of these before, BUT I have gleaned oodles of inspiration from Pinterest, so I figured it was time.
I first saw this cute pin ages ago when I first 'found' Pinterest, pinned it, and promptly forgot about it.  It is from a nursery featured on Elements of Style.

I had the boys adorable little bowties that they sported to my little sister's wedding last August just sitting in my nightstand, waiting for their moment to shine. 
I gathered up a few empty frames, an old drop cloth, and my scissors.  It was seriously a five minute craft.
I slid the alligator clips out of the back of the bow ties, cut the canvas to fit, popped them all together, and bam! Adorable little momentos preserved for all time (well...for a while anyway).
 I didn't need to glue them in place, since the glass pressed them tight enough that they wouldn't budge. 
I like the texture that the canvas provides as the backdrop, and man, do I love seeing those dear little bowties!
 The polka dot one was Jack's, and if you look closely you can see little red stains where he dribbled juice down his chest...typical two year old stuff! I love that I can remember that exact moment when I see this little piece.

This is the part where I would show you a cute shot of them hung up on the wall..but since we are moving in 33 days (!!), you will just have to use your imagination!

Did you join in the challenge this year?

Head on over to the hosts of the challenge to find more great projects!
