Well I’m not quite sure where summer went, but it’s time for Back to School! Can you believe it?
Hey there! It’s Judy V here posting for CutCardStock with an altered picture frame project that fits this time of year. You can create one for a teacher as a door hanger. Or you can make one to add a school photo. It can be hung or placed on a shelf of maybe on a desk or side table.
Start with an inexpensive unfinished wood wood clip frame. I think this one was $1 or less at Michaels. The clip makes it easy to change out photos or a quote.
I chose some card stock, Cougar White Smooth CardStock, Basis RED Cardstock and Basis GOLD Cardstock. School themed digis and a patterned paper from Imagine That Digi Stamp printed onto the WHITE card stock.
A set of numbers was die cut of of the RED card stock. The “Welcome Back to School” clip art was found for free on the internet and printed on the WHITE cardstock. Fussy cutting was done.
I cut GOLD and RED card stock, matted and adhered to the wood frame. The patterned digital paper was added. A notch was cut to fit around the clip.
Number die cuts were arranged and adhered to the frame.
Digital stamps were added.
Complete by adding your photo or quote! I added the “Welcome Back to School” clip art which I adhered to the WHITE card stock and matted with the GOLD. Ribbons were tied to the clip for a little extra embellishment.
I hope you have enjoyed my “Back to School Altered Frame” project!
