How to Create a Flat Lay Background

FlatlayDIY How to Create a Flat Lay Background DIY
I got bored of using my desk and bedsheets as my flat lay background. So I decided to create my own flat lay backgrounds to switch it up a bit. This is a pretty project to do! I would recommend grabbing a partner though as contact paper is super spiky and you don’t want to have any mishaps.

Materials:: 

Contact Paper
Foam Poster Paper
Credit Card or Gift Card
Scissors

Steps:: 

1. Cut contact paper to size. I leave excess so that I can wrap it around the back but that is optional. If you want to make a two sided board you can cut it exact so you can use the other side as well. That is more difficult so I opted with one-sided backgrounds.
2. Peel backing off and carefully place on top of the surface.

3. Use the card to smooth out air bubbles. Go in one direction!!!
4. Flip the board over and press down the excess.

I ended up making 4! I can’t wait to use them. Thank you for reading.
