First, I wanted to thanks Jessica Jones over at How About Orange for feature the origami paper bow tutorial that I shared last year HERE. That page right now has more than 23 thousand views. Last Friday when Jessica featured my tutorial on her blog I had over 14, 000 visitors in one day. HOLLY COW! Thank you so much for sending your readers to my blog, Jessica!
O.k. on to my today project. If you are my regular blog readers, you knew I love to decorate photo frames because they make great gift!
I had been trying to make my own photo frame but I didn't know what material to use. I was thinking of using wood but cutting wood and sanding wood are a bit messy. Then I was thinking of using cereal box but they are too thin. I was drooling over the decorated quilling frames that Lin at Lin Handmade Greeting Card made. And that inspired me to think harder. Then I got an idea. How about foam board? I tried it and it work!
The foam board I used was 3/16 inch thick. Micheal's had a sell last week for 99 cents each. Of course I grabbed a few sheets.
For this frame I cut it 8 x 10 so one sheet of foam board will give me 6 frames. This frame fit 4 x 6 inches picture. I took pictures for the tutorial but all the pictures came out badly so I had to make another frame and will do the tutorial then. So stay tune!
Here are two more decorated frames using wooden frame from Micheal's.
