I just picked up a cheap wood frame from the craft section at Walmart, and used some scrapbooking paper I had bought previously for the scrabble tile necklaces. Just modpodged the paper to the frame, put a couple more coats of mod podge on top and called it a day!
Just for the record, it wasn't as easy as I have made it sound...I did get some air bubbles that I tried to push out with a credit card. In doing so, the paper tore in some places...not horribly but enough to notice. But imperfections are often in homemade things, and I knew my mom would appreciate the thought so I didn't make a big deal out of it.
I got the kids together, and took a quick snapshot...framed the best one. It's as easy as that.
I had Michael make a potato stamp and stamp a brown paper bag for wrapping paper like we used to do in grade school. See I did learn something in grade school. Michael bucked tradition and went with green and black hearts...such a little rebel.
My mom was thrilled with her gift and it didn't cost much at all!
A great tutorial on how to do this project is found at Tidymom.
She has made several adorable frames! Check her out!
