Quick Frame Fix

I hope everyone had a lovely Easter weekend and got to spend lots of time with loved ones. The hubs and I did, and I got to spend some extra time crafting. This post is just a real simple quick fix that I came up with to help remedy an empty frame that was hanging out at the house, but I did not have a picture that size to fit it.

I bought about a dozen of these black frames in a couple different sizes from the dollar store to use at our wedding reception. Since then, they have just been scattered through my house, some painted and used on a gallery wall, gave some to my parents with the wedding pictures, and so on. Anyways I recently moved around and updated some pictures, but that left this 5x7 frame empty.


So, since I didn't have a photo or a matte I decided to just take a piece of scrapbook paper and make my own little matter. I used the back to trace the size and cut it out.


Then I just centered my picture on the paper, and voila..it's not perfect but it works and makes it a little cuter!




Sorry the pictures are so blurry, I took them with my iPhone Sunday morning while I was doing some Easter cleaning!

Thanks for reading! :)
