Scrapbook Frames

When one of my good friends sent me the very first (ultrasound) pic of her baby, I wanted to make her a frame to capture the little miracle.

Off to the Dollar Tree I went and I found this thing:


I cut off the string that is on it and then trimmed some scrapbook paper that I could wrap and glue around it. I used three different patterns.




I put a new ribbon through the old holes and cut a piece of white paper to fit on the back to "hide" where I wrapped the scrapbook paper. I hot glued on.


On the front, I hot glued a bull dog clip. I am not sure if there is another name for these, but you can buy them at office supply stores and even grocery stores. Mine happened to have a magnet (the round part of it), but I would have preferred to have one without - there is no need for the magnet part.


I took a piece of glass from the 4X6 Dollar Tree frame like this one:


And put it under the clip with the ultrasound picture. I also cut out the words "ultra cute" and put at the bottom of the frame.


I cut out an initial to cover the clip. You could also use a button or something else to spruce it up.


Here is the finished product (with baby's named blacked out, just in case the cat isn't totally out of the bag yet):


I like it so much that I made one for my mother-in-law for Mother's Day. She loves to take pictures, so I knew she would have just the right one for this frame:


This time I added a button on the clip for a little added pizzaz!

  21. I love your frame! Using the clip is a great idea, I created a reusable calendar one year with them. I found that it's best to rehot glue the magnet inside the clip. My magnet eventually came out of the clip but otherwise has held up for over five years.
