Altered Frames

I love making altered frames for gifts. They are relatively inexpensive to do and you can customize it to the person receiving it . You can find the wood frames in your craft store, wood section. I think they normally run for $4 each, well the style I purchase does. I usually stock up on them when they go on sale for $2.  I usually pull the paper, to decorate the frame with, from my stash unless it is a special occasion and then I might run to my local scrapbook store and get what I need. Then I decoupage the paper to the frame, sand all the edges, and ink the edges. Lastly, I embellish the front of the frame with ribbon, flowers, bling, or what every you want. The possibilities are endless!

Here are a few that I have made.



This frame was the first frame I made four years ago. It is a more expensive frame, I have since found the a more affordable frame.
