Framed Scrapbook Paper

I ***HEART*** Moulding!! It makes such an impact for such little money!!



I found this CUTE scrapbook paper at Michael's, and although I originally had different plans, I quickly developed a plan for our wall that you see when you enter from the garage.



It's SO simple to do...( if you have an AWESOME husband like mine :)) and can cut moulding to make a frame!!



Here are the steps,





1.) Find some cute scrapbook paper (12x12)





2.) Miter (angle) moulding to frame the scrapbook paper.





3.) Caulk where the ends match up, and then give it a coat of white paint, and WALLA!!!













Instant Decor which cost a total of $5.00





Pretty Unique!!

What a cute idea - thanks for sharing. I don't scrapbook, but use the paper for a lot of projects.

I've been wanting to do something like this in my daughter's bedroom. We aren't allowed to paint, so I need something fun, but inexpensive to decorate her walls.

I need your help. A lady commented yesterday that it takes 3 steps to leave me an e-mail. I have it set up with no word verification and when I go try it is just one step-what is it for you? AND how do you have yours set up because it is just one step. HELP ME HELP ME.

Cute!!! that's such a great idea, I drool over scrapbook paper & always wonder where I can put it on display. This is perfect.

Thanks for the comment on my oval monogrammed frames! I think your scrapbook paper project is TDF! Keep up the fun stuff on your blog!

Brook said...

Very cool! I thought about using scrapbook paper rather than fabric, but couldn't find eight patterns I liked.

Audra said...

What an incredible idea for next to nothing. I don't think anyone would believe your chic art was $5.00 for both! Simply stunning, fabulous idea!

Lovin' those colorful patterns! Your husband does great work. :)
Thanks for sharing!

I love this idea! I've been collecting picture frames, and I need to do something similar.

So, when I saw this post, it immediately reminded me of the print I framed a while back, that sort of looks like scrapbook paper (but a bit larger!)
