Famous Faces

I am fascinated with all the art and design available on vintage LP covers.  I have been folding some more boxes from LP covers and collecting them into themes. 
This set of 9 famous faces  will be for sale in the Freshly Found shop soon! Old Blue Eyes, the Carpenters, Tom Jones, Shirley Bassey, John Denver and Barbara Streisand are some of the singers in this wall band!
 
Generally I make the top lid of the box from the front of the ,LP cover and the base from the back of the cover.
I decided to mount this set on the wall.  I placed a large circle of masking tape on the back of the base of the box.
Then I positioned the base on the wall.  I spaced these evenly by placing the side of the box directly under the top box and then rotating it down.  Once I was sure it is square, I pushed it firmly on the wall and placed the lid on the box!
I love the 3D quality of the display.
Interesting info of the history of LP covers here and here.
