So in the grand move from the college dorms to our apartment, my boyfriend's favorite Radiohead posters got mauled. They were wrinkled and torn and had giant sticky spots all over them because someone thought the best way to hang a poster was with duct tape. *sighs, shakes head*

Needless to say the boy was very sad and asked me to fix them and said if I couldn't, he would just throw them away. So of course, I "fixed" them. I took three Radiohead posters, printed Radiohead lyrics, a black pen, chocolate scented stamp pad, construction paper, brass letters, a glue stick, recycled cardboard and an old poster frame whose plastic fell out and broke long ago  and came up with this:

From these posters:

The boy is happy, and I think I am too! It is the perfect balance of crafty and Radiohead love!

Great way to bring them all together!  Glad you could save them too!
