If you've got a good dollar store in your area, you've probably seen these. If you're anything like me, you probably have 10 of them.
I don't really decorate in silver or cool colors except for in my dining room. Red just doesn't fit. So...I had some fun stepping out of my comfort zone with these colors.
I found an old frame in the basement, covered the mat with some pretty paper, and glued the ornament in the middle. Voila.
I bought a couple of these frames for .99 cents last week at the consignment shop. No plan, but I knew I'd find something.Of course, if you know me, you know scrapbook paper had to be involved.
The "Believe" came just like it is on a piece of paper. It fit perfectly into the frame, so I just cut it out and put it in. I love a project that easy!
Not bad for $1.66, eh?
And for the final project...I bought these scrapbooking signs months ago for $3.99 (all 9 of them!). I knew they'd come in handy some day.
Grab an old frame from the basement (don't you love basements full of frames?), put in some of my favorite paper, and stick it to the front. In case you're wondering, I don't use any of the glass from these frames. I like the dimensional look of it without the glass.
She's perfect! I was going to attach some ribbon to it and hang it, but I ended up liking her here.
Of course, my original thought was to give these away as presents, but I think I'll keep this one for myself. Merry Christmas to me.
Merry Christmas to all of my blog friends! Be safe in your travels, hug your family and friends more than usual, and take time to enjoy the laughter around you!
