-She bought frames, removed the glass and cardboard easel part, then sanded, painted and embellished them in the colors of her choice.
- She glued two layers of cork bulletin board material onto the cardboard easel part . It came in a roll at a craft store. She used wood glue to glue them on and put heavy books on top of them until dry. Once dry she reassembled the frames.
- She bought some buttons and chose others from our stash.
She used wire cutters to snip off the back if needed. Then used E6000 glue to secure the buttons onto thumbtacks.
These frames are just waiting for some To Do lists, Inspirations and Photos !
She did a crackle technique on one frame but I didn't get a picture of that one.
This is fun to make and relatively easy too. It is a useful gift that takes up little space and can be easily moved to where you need it most.
Perhaps you know someone who would enjoy a gift like this!
