Feeling Framed

I seem to be feeling in a framing kind of mood lately.

If you head over to the JeMbellish blog you will see a framed door plaque I made for my youngest son's room this afternoon.

I set my self a challenge yesterday to use up a couple of boxes that I stashed in my craft room for the last few months. They were really good sturdy boxes that my son's school supplies came in and I thought they would be useful for something one day.

I made this wall hanging last night.

First I cut a backing board and a frame from one of the cardboard boxes and them cut some co-ordinating cardstock and papers.

Then it was simply a matter of putting it all together.

First is the backing cardboard, then I layer the co-ordinating cardstock and Designer paper and stamped image. Over that goes the cardboard frame cut out.

The brown cardstock goes over the cardboard frame, it is a piece large enough to wrap around the the back of the cardboard backing. I have cut a window in the brown cardstock to frame the image.

The back of the frame looks like this

I gave the whole thing a coat of Modge Podge to seal it all.

Looks great Michelle, I used to stash away such boxes but got rid of them when I recently moved, pity we don't live closer to one another they could have come your way. Nice job girlie!
