Crafty How To: "The Crafty Frame"

With Mother's Day and Teacher Appreciation on the horizon, my girl and I decided to get crafty. So with a little scrapbook paper, a wooden frame, and Mod Podge, we made some sweet, simple gifts.


 Want to make your own Crafty Frames? Here is what you will need:
 -Wooden frames ($1 each at Micheal's)
-Scrapbook paper
-Pen
-Scissors
-Mod Podge
-Paint Brush
-Embellishments (buttons, trim, ric rac, flowers etc)

First, trace the frame on the back of a piece of scrapbook paper. Then cut it out. Don't forget to cut out the center too.

Then paint on a thin layer of Mod Podge to the front of the frame. Place the scrapbook paper on the wet Mod Podge. Then press and smooth out the paper.

Now comes the fun part, add the embellishments! Small items can be attached using Mod Podge, you might want to use hot glue for the larger items.

Afton was so proud of her frame :) She used some scrap paper to write a sweet note to her teacher. Such sweet handwriting- I love her spelling of 'best'!
 

This idea works for teachers, moms, or any time you want to give a handmade gift.


I am happy to share the printable for your Mother's Day projects. You can click the image below and drag it onto your desktop, or simply download and print.

 The frames were so fun and easy. I am going to share it with my MOPS group next week- I can't wait for all 60 of my MOPS friends to make their own frames too.

What are you crafting for the Moms and Teachers in your life?
