I recently had 2 custom picture frames created from a seller on ETSY. They turned out super cute and the girls that I gifted them to loved them. Seeing how cute they turned out I decided to try to make my own! (Especially since they were $20 +shipping) So I went to Hobby Lobby and got to work! The supplies (I had somethings on hand) only cost me $1.29 +tax.

Here are the supplies: $1 wood frame
$.29 sheet of scrapbook paper, ribbon, sponge brush, and scissors
(yes they are reindeer scissors)

Step 1: trace the frame on the back of the paper

Step 2: cut out paper

Step 3: Trace and cut out picture hole

Step 4: coat the frame with Mod Podge and glue down the paper (also coat the paper)

Step 5: (Being Southern) Tie a BIG bow with beautiful ribbon and glue on frame

The Finished Product!

Cute huh? I was quite proud! I had the ribbon and mod podge on hand so I did not have that cost. I am making them for the majorettes as a camp gift using green and white polka dot paper. I will take a pic once I get them finished! Have a great rest of the week.

I think your coupon-ness and this craft go hand in hand!!
