DIY: Mini Canvas Art - Mirror

Today is the first project in a week long series about mini canvas art. I am really excited about the series! Mini canvases are awesome for beginner or advanced crafters. They are quick projects that do not require a lot of materials or equipment. However, if you have materials/equipment - yay! You can make your mini canvases as complex as you'd like.
Today's project is perfect for a co-worker gift or a little "Hey, I'm thinking of you" gift. We're going to make little mirrors, perfect for hanging in your office or car. Click 'read more' to see the tutorial.

Supplies: paper, glue, embellishments, mini canvas, mini mirror (I got both of these at JoAnns - here are mirrors and canvases for a good price on Amazon). Trust me, you'll want to buy these in multiples - I've got lots of mini art in store for you and it is so much fun!
Step 1: Paint your canvas.
Step 2: Cut 4 strips of paper and glue them to the edges of your mirror - gotta hide those rough edges!
Step 3: Play around with your design. I cut different papers and placed the mirror on top to make sure I liked the look. Then I glued it all down. 
Voila! You're all done. Aren't they fun and easy?
