A great idea for kids miniblinds

I did this to my son's room when he was little.

Purchase removable wall stickers to match the decor in the room. In our case we used trucks.

Lay your mini blind flat on a hard object such as scrap wood on the floor with the blind shut(bumpy side up).
Strategically place your large wall sticker on the blind so that when the blind is closed it will show.
Take a utility knife and slice across each slat where the sticker is.

When you open the blind the design disappears but when it's shut, the picture appears. I hope this makes sense!

I helped my dd do this in my youngest GD's room only instead of stickers I used a poster of (at that time her favorite was Winnie the Pooh)and glued it to them, and just cut all the way across on each blind and it did look cute,but we had it glued on there so good it didnt come off and I have no idea what dd did with the blind, but its no longer. Ive also seen this done by painting on it too, but since Im not good at painting this was much easier.
