DIY State Prints

State Prints from Lolly Jane




A couple of days ago I fell in love with a print of Arizona I saw on Pinterest.

Arizona Print from Plum Street Prints

She had a few states, but she didn't have Texas.  Being an AZ girl that is now in TX, I thought it might be fun to have both.

Then last night I saw this cute image in my Google Reader.


Kelli had made it for her little sister that had married a man from Louisiana.  Such a cute idea for an engagement present.

And the best part is that there is a really great tutorial on how to make your own state prints over at Lolly Jane Boutique.

Of course, then I realized that I have a font on my computer that has the shape of states and I can use my Silhouette to cut them out.  Now I have to talk myself out of thinking I need all 50 states hanging somewhere.

If you want to practice with Michigan, I'll buy it off you! Cheaper than buying my own Silhouette!

I love this idea. Being a military family I think this would be a great project for me to hang on the wall.... Thank you so much for sharing! :)

This is so precious. I need to figure out how to make something similar to represent the places that my husband and I are from and where we've lived as a couple.
