Paper covered frame

This is a $3 wooden frame that I got at Michael's and covered in Basic Grey designer paper. The opening is just under 3.25" x3.25".

To go with the rustic feel of the paper, I also added some linen twine over the existing "scratches" in the paper. I wrapped the twine all the way around the frame and also decoupaged the twine, going over it just like I did with the designer paper. That small touch really added a lot to the dimension of the project!


Thanks for looking and have a great weekend! And yes, the blog candy is still to come. I'm going to try to take pictures of the goodies up for grabs tonight and post this weekend.

Very cute - you should be selling those on Etsy!

I used the same frame and covered it with patterned paper. It was super easy and turned out pretty good. I like how you used twine on yours. a
