Well, here is another thing I found I can alter! FRAMES!
I bought an ADORABLE set from ScrapbookSteals a while back called Alphabet Soup. I bought it with the intent of letting G play with the flash cards & to use to decorate items in her soon to be "big girl" room (a HUGE post on that soon!).
I got to work yesterday and decided to show you how you can make your own adorable art work for your kids' rooms! :)
I took a frame that we had gotten as a gift before G was born:
And got out all my paper and supplies:
I then emptied the frame and covered the entire thing with Mod Podge:
I laid out my 12x12 paper and made sure I was lining the frame up straight with the paper design. Luckily, I choose a paper that had a back side pattern that ran the same way so I could make sure it was just right.
After that, I took scissors and made sure I cut all the way up the sides to the edges in a diagonal fashion.
Next up, I poked a hole in the center of the frame and cut that in diagonals too.
After that, I used my bone folder to really crease the paper inside the edges and trimmed the excess. You can also use the edge of scissors to cut the extra. ;)
I then worked my way around all the edges, tucking in and gluing pieces.
Next, I cut a piece of scrapbook paper and embellished it to match her room. I made sure it fit properly with the glass and inserted it. We love owls!
It wasn't exactly right... so I went and got out some distressing ink and a sponge:
I worked it around the outside and inside picture edges.
You can see where a little mod podge squirted out on the upper right hand side. Oh well, gives it more character :)
I don't know what you think, but I LOVE it!!
