I love to find a good bargain on picture frames, because any parent will tell you — you need a LOT of picture frames for your children’s pictures. It seems my daughter gets 3-4 school pictures each year, and I’m always looking for fun ways to display them.
I found a very nice albeit plain picture frame that I knew had to be embellished a little bit.
I took some wide washi tape that I found in a craft store, and made some stripes across the mat. I decorated the entire front of the mat, wrapping the ends around the back. To add some color, I took thin red washi tape and went across the middle. I also cut a matching red mat out of cardstock.
Finally, I put it back in the glass, ready for a picture to be added! Such an easy project, and such a wonderful frame!
Have a peaceful and happy week and happy crafting!
