A co-worker ordered five altered 4x6 frames from me. They're going to be Christmas gifts to family with her favorite photos. Two down...three to go.
The $1 frame came from Michael's. I painted it with Magnolia White Opaque Acrylic Paint and a sponge brush. Once dry, I traced the frame onto the opposite side of the dp, cut it out and adhered the paper to the frame with Mod Podge with a sponge brush. Once dry, I sanded the edges with a sanding block and coated the frame with a layer of Mod Podge to seal it and give it a finished look.
I found this wonderful swirlie chipboard piece in my stash and thought that it'd make a great stem for my Prima flower. The stem was inked with True Thyme ink, coated with Mod Podge and adhered to the frame with Mod Podge. The flower was attached with a Mini Glue Dot.
I covered the two photo corner chipboard pieces with Sapid dp, sanded the edges and adhered them to the frame with Mod Podge.
(Yes, this will actually hold a photo, but I can't stand to see an empty picture frame, so I stamped one of the flowers from Stem Silhouettes onto Whisper White cs with Old Olive ink.)
My co-worker really liked it, and I hope you do, too. I'd love to hear what you think. TFL - Regina

Are these frames wood? But wait, I am ahead of myself. These are absolutley gorgeous and I wish I had you talent. You have inspired me though, and I bought Modge Podge about a week ago so.........Beautiful and thanks for sharing.
By the way, what will you charge? It is so hard to sell to coworkers and frineds, isn't it?
