My new background

Since I'm broke and bored and off of work until Monday I decided to finally make myself a new background.

I got old fabric and lace and roses from my grandmother as she was throwing out her craft things and I hijacked them. I used packing tape in case I want the fabric/lace/roses for another project sometime later and it surprisingly worked perfectly.

I wrapped the fabric around a piece of cardboard cut to fit my tank, then taped the lace on:

Then I taped on a lace piece that was originally made to go over a candle holder or a centerpiece (I think) and I cut out a lace flower from a piece of scratch lace that was floating around my craft box:

I attached little flowers to the lace piece, clapped my hands together and said "ta da!"

then I taped it to my tank:
