Handpainted the frame. then I used to layers of matboard and glued together for each of the pieces so to make it more deminsional.
Was able to put the ribbon for the name pieces between the two pieces of mat board so that it would hang loose.

Thanks. First I painted the entire frame a eggshell white then I took a piece of waded up paper towel and with one color at a time I patted it on. It looked pretty good but to flat looking so I took Decopage medium and applied it with a sponge brush for a more even coverage (about 2 to 3 coats). I finished each of the pieces with the Decopage as well to seal the colored pencil and permanant ink and to give the same look as the frame.
triciastampinVA, Thanks. I've actually had a couple of people that said I should sell them not sure though. I'm going to make one for my daughter with the girl colors and see how it turns out. I like to make gifts that can be keepsakes.
