Push Pin Wall Art

Who has this kind of time?  At least that’s what Chirag and Amber thought when A Portrait with Food  posted here earlier.  Well, here is another great (?) work of art for your consideration – this time with push pins:

Five for Friday – Lunch Bag Art

When you were a kid, did you have to carry your lunch in a brown bag while all the other kids carried cool lunch boxes?  I was the nerdy kid that liked the school’s hot lunches, so I didn’t carry anything; but if I did, I would have preferred these lunch bags over a lunch box any day.  This dad creates a new lunch bag for his kids each day (Dana and Dylan are lucky kids):

Hello Kitty:

Pterodactyl for lunch – mmm good!:

3. On top of the world:

4. or France:

5. This looks like fun:

As a bonus, a couple that display the creative process:
