Project Ideas: Altered Frames

It really is amazing how just a few supplies can change an entire product. For instance we currently have some general frames available in our Paints & Basics department - a few styles with a title on a white mat and others with a quote or words printed directly onto a white mat. Of course you could definitely pick up the frames and use them as they are - but you can also alter them (with just a couple supplies) to create completely unique and different piece too.

 I really love how these projects turned out and am excited to share them with you! If you would like to pick up some frames to create your own projects you can find them on a back endcap in our Paints & Basics department - and right now the frames are available for only $7.98 each!

Here is an example of how the titled frame comes:

You can find detailed project sheets for all of the samples by clicking on the Project Title, but generally we carefully removed the title from the photo mat, altered the mat with pattern paper and washi tape in these two samples and then re-adhered the title using Glossy Accents.

And how the Quote Frame comes - for these samples we simply flipped the photo mat and altered the backside to avoid seeing the quote through the alterations.


Photo Covered Mat Frame - No extra supplies were even needed for this project - just some time to alter and print the photos!
