I needed frames for my various table signs… but I wasn’t about to go spend money to buy some when I had plenty of unused old frames in my apartment. My solution? Just cover up the old ones with something new (and blue and gold)!
All it took was flat paper from Paper Source, my x-acto knife and some scotch tape (it’s not even a permanent makeover!) and here’s what I ended up with:
First the paper: White Gold Royal Blue flat paper from Paper Source ($3.50/sheet)
I just positioned my frame on the paper, and loosely cut out a larger rectangle of paper to cover the frame.
Then, I cut out an inside rectangle, being careful to leave an inch border inside. I made slits to each corner to help with the folding, and just taped the paper to the inside of the frame.
Time to wrap the outside… just as easy as wrapping a package! More scotch tape please!
And now the finished product!
Not too shabby for $3.50 … and there’s two more to use if I need them!
