Queen Elizabeth's 90th Birthday Wall Mural


Using the Daily Mail photos in the various magazines they published for the Queen's 90th Birthday, commemorating Her Majesty's life, we made a Wall Mural.

And then on the same theme, we completed three Pop-Up pages in Our Project Book.
If you want to make your own Pop-Ups here is the link Pop-Up Tutorial




Three Thursdays of great craft, celebrating a great occasion, by the Mencap, Braintree Art and Craft Group...
