Family Frame

Did you have a grand plan to make all of your Christmas gifts this year? Are you finding yourself running out of time to get them done?

Here's a quick and easy project for you!

I found this frame at Staples for about $4. It has two 4"x6" openings and two 4"x4" openings. And it just so happens that the lovely people at Simple Stories happen to make pattern papers that have designs in 4x6 and 4x4 so all you have to do is pick your theme (baby, birthday, family, everyday, summer, school, etc.) and add some of their designs to the windows. For this frame I chose to use pattern paper and embellishments in all of the openings, but you could use pictures for some of them. You could also put the family's name or "est. date" in one of the windows (instead of the ruffled ribbon.)

Design for The Scrapbooking Studio
Patterned paper - "Generations" by Simple Stories; Key, Clock hands, Token, Brad, Washer - Tim Holtz; Cream ribbon - Offray; brown ribbon & rhinestone embellishment - Prima; Ink - Color box.

Since I used lumpy embellishments, I took the glass out, but it would also be cool to leave the glass in and add vinyl or something over the top of it.
