This is my first attempt. It was oh so easy, really if you have never done it before you need to try it. Amazing all the cool things you could do to jazz up the photo frame. The frame starts as basic wood. I got mine at Michaels for a buck. Can't beat that price. Then I added some gorgeous basic grey paper, covered chipboard, paint and ribbon. Whole project probably runs about 5$ in price and an hour or so in time. This frame I made for my friend's birthday. Since then I have made three more, its kind of addicting actually.
