Picture This :)

27 Nov

Why waste 20-30 bucks on a frame when you can make one that’s exactly your style for less than $5.00? This is an awesome easy project and perfect for gifts!

Materials: Unfinished frame, Box (or Box Top), Adhesive Spray, Wrapping paper of your choice, Ribbon of your choice, Bead (Optional), Pin, Tacky Glue, Double-Sided Tape, X-acto Knife, and Mat Board.

This was so simple and I finished it in no time! I cut a piece of wrapping paper to fit the frame, sprayed adhesive onto the frame and laid the frame on the wrapping paper (face down). Set a book on it and waited for five minutes (perfect time to make a bow if you want one). When it was dry I used the X-acto knife to cut around the edges and the middle section of the frame and it was complete!

The bows took a little more time. Cut pieces of ribbon to your size liking and put them together in a bow shape. The pink one I used double-sided sticky tape and it turned out cute but I wasn’t too thrilled that I could see little pieces of tape so I tried the tacky glue and put a pin through the middle and a bead to make it pretty. I like the way the white bow turned out but I still love the color of the pink one 🙂

This was a fun and really simple project. Hope you all enjoy 🙂

Love Always,

J
