Super Simple Frame

So, I got time to post earlier than I thought. I made this frame pretty simple because I didn't have much time on my hands to craft today, but I loved the papers I got from Go. Be Creative. and really wanted to play with them and the small wooden letters I got there. You can get the patterned Fancy Pants petterned paper here, and the wooden letters here. You will love them! I left mine natural but they can be painted or covered with paper.

The lighting in my house made the patterned paper a little more pink than it is, and I couldn't get Photoshop to make it correct without messing up the other colors. I made a simple bow for the corner, modpodged my paper on, and added some brown ric-rac. The ribbon and ric-rac were from an assortment of ribbon that I got for just over A BUCK! Check it out here. The Bazzill CS I used was not on sale, but it was only a quarter a sheet and you can get the Haley color I used here.

GBC is having a sale right now and ALL of the items I used for this project were marked down except the Bazzill CS. Don't miss out on their 50% off sale!!!

The frame I altered is from Wal-Mart (only store in this town with anything craft-related) and is made by EK Success. I prefer wooden ones, but oh well, you make do with what you've got! :)
