Home...The Perfect Nest

I found this frame in the clearance aisle of Home Goods for $3.00.  What I liked about it was that it was flat and it would be easy for me to make it into something a little more special.
I started by looking through my stash of scrapbook paper and letters.
Now which paper to pick?
This one was cool, but not exactly the look I was after.
I liked this one.  It had a blue/green color and the darker dots are raised.
I took the frame and the paper and placed them both upside down on a cutting board.  Using my knife I cut around the frame to make the paper the exact size.
I then used the same knife to cut away the center of the paper as well.
Using a corner cutter, I clipped each of the four corners of the cut paper.
Using Mod Podge I glued the paper onto the frame.  I only glued the back.  I didn't apply any Mod Podge to the top because I liked the texture of the paper and didn't want to affect that.

I used adhesive ribbon to cover the edges around the center section.
You can see better in this picture the four corners that I used the corner cutter on.
I used adhesive letters (which I had to add a little glue to since they are so thick and didn't really stick too well).
Some more embellishments and I was done.  Now I just have to find the perfect picture.

I love the frame now.  It was such a simple project.  Let me know what you think.  I always love and appreciate your comments.
Don't forget the Winter Blues party is open through tonight. You can still link up your projects.
Have a great weekend.
