picture frames

I read a lot of crafty blogs.  I'd seen the same concept on a few different sites so I decided to make my on own variation.  I turned a normal block of wood into, hopefully, a cute picture frame!

I took a block of wood...you could make it any size you want...I actually have no idea what size these are...  Anyway, I sanded down the edges.  Mod podged some paper on the top. Distressed edges.
I had some left over "glass" from old frames I was going to get rid of.  So I got some thumb tacks and hammered them in the wood to hold the glass in place.


I made some little fabric flowers to put on the sides by the glass...
just roll up fabric and hot glue it to some felt. super simple.


then I hot glued the flowers onto to the wood frame...


attach some ribbon to the back...and you're done!!!

the glass can slide out and you just add your picture behind it!
