CanvasPop Giveaway + Printable

Have I got something fun today!  I'd like to introduce you to Canvaspop.  Canvaspop will take your favorite photo and turn it into a canvas.  I sent one of my favorite pictures of my mom and dad - 1961, right after their wedding in the back of a '57 Chevy.  (Were  you surprised to see your face, Mom?)

Isn't it great?  The photo wraps around the edges - I really like that.  I'm helping my mom and dad with a black and white photo wall in their new house.   This is a perfect addition!

In the interest of full disclosure, Steve from Canvaspop contacted me and asked me if might do a review.  Since the canvas is fabulous, I'm happy to post about it.  And the other fabulous thing is that one lucky reader will win a photo canvas from Canvaspop!  Details are below.

I wanted to wrap the canvas simply to give to my mom and dad.  I tied some gold cording around it and attached a foiled pocket with a tag.  I just got a Minc and used it to create the pink foiled words on the pocket - very cool, huh?

I've created a printable that can be printed with toner (not inkjet - that means copier or laser printer) so it can be foiled or it can be printed on an inkjet and left black and white.  You can see the tag above, I just printed it in black and white.  You can download the For You printable HERE.

I did a couple of different colors of foil:

These were really hard to photograph and look much better in person!  Here is the back of the pocket with the tag:

Here's how to make the pocket:

These instructions are based on the printable as is.  If you change the size or position, you'll need to change the cuts and scores.  

First thing, cut the For You sentiment off at 5" from the top.  You can see for this one, I left it black and white and swiped it with a little watercolor.

Then score as seen above.

Fold in the sides and cut off the long side to match the front.

Now you're ready to angle the sides.  Glue the sides, fold up and glue the bottom.  Done!
