Canvas photos

My office recently moved to a new location, so I have been on the lookout for some decorations for my new office (actually, it’s a cube).  I knew I wanted to find a cute way to display pictures of Meg and the dogs, but didn’t want to use boring photo frames. 
Meg and I went to Michael’s for some supplies to create canvas prints.  I had originally planned on doing 5x7 prints, but found some 6x6 canvases and fell in love with them.  With a little scrapbook paper, mod podge and pictures, I was able to create some great canvas prints.

I love how the canvases turned out and think I will make some for the house.  Meme already asked me to create one for her with pictures of Megan and Luke.

How did you connect all three of them together?

Found you on Pinterest and I love your project. Did you print your pictures on regular paper or photo paper?

Question: I just tried this project. When I placed my photo (printed on matte photo paper) on the painted canvas with the Mod Podge -- the photo started "bubbling!" The more I tried to smooth the photo back into place -- the more creased an bubbled it became!

Did I miss something? Did you have this same thing occur as you were first doing this project?

Help -- PLEASE! This is a Christmas present for my daughter and I have limited time to complete!!! Thanks!!!!

This will problably sound really rude, if so I'm sorry. But I don't think that the instructions are very clear. Love the idea and would like to try it, but not sure how to attach all 3 of the canvas's together. Thank you

Are the pictures printed on the scrap paper you mention?? Are they all connected together hot glueing the ribbon on the back of the canvas?? If you love love love comments, please respond to them. Otherwise you will lose readers.
