Homemade Picture Frame

Wouldn't this be a fun and inexpensive gift for the Grandparents?!? for CHRISTMAS! This is so easy to make and it looks so CUTE when finished. 

How to:
1. Place your wooden frame on the back of your scrapbook paper. I found mine at Michaels Craft Store So there is no pen marking’s on your paper. Trace the inside and outer part of your frame. Cut out the outer part and fold paper and make a snip with your scissors and then start cutting the inside out (This is where your picture is going to be.
2. Paint the edge of your frame. Give it 2 coats and let it dry.
3. Paint your frame with modge podge and place your cutout scrapbook paper on frame. Let it dry and then paint over the scrapbook paper with modge podge. Let it dry and then punch out your embelishments and ink it with vintage ink. Use pop dots to adhere to frame.

*Wooden frame $1 (Michael’s Craft store )

*One sheet of Christmas Scrapbook paper and punch out paper embellishments ( I found mine at my favorite scrapbook store Timeless Treasures.)
