Frames, frames and more frames!

Good Afternoon!
I love picture frames. I like to find all kinds of unique ones. Let's just say I have a lot of picture frames. We just moved, and I already have 2 book cases full of them on display, and still haven't unpacked them all yet. I'm telling you this because my hubby said I couldn't buy anymore frames. He says I have too many. So what's a crafty girl to do? I'll tell you! She finds a loop hole! I got these mats at Wal-mart (my favorite store) for 50 cents! I picked up a bunch because I knew I could alter them, I just hadn't done it yet. I decided today is the day! I grabbed a piece of DSP and went to town. I loved making this frame and after ruining one sheet of DSP I finally got the dimensions right. It looked easier on are the dimensions. If you use a 5x7 mat, your DSP should be 6x8. An inch bigger on both sides. Place your mat face down on the DSP in the middle of the paper and it will leave a 1/4'' border. Place adhesive on the front side of your mat. Cut out the center, fold it over, add embelishments and done! Easy peasy!

Hope you enjoy and I'll see ya tomorrow!

Ps. Be looking for videos starting next weekend! I'm getting the stuff I need for my birthday. So hopefully I will be doing videos next weekend WOOOHOOO!!!
