Did you hear? We are redecorating our bedroom! That means new paint, new art and new a lot of other things. Knowing that Mathlete is indulging me in this because he knows I will try to do it as budget friendly as possible, I’ve been playing around with different things for accents in the room. The first thing I did was frame some scrapbook paper to make “art”. Nothing fancy but it would look good on a dresser or bookcase.
I bought some solid blue and printed green scrapbook paper from Michael’s. Using the frame mat from my Ribba frame, I measured out the paper. I wanted the blue paper to be the large piece so I used the outer edge of the mat as my guide for cutting.
For the green printed paper, I just cut the paper the inner edges of the frame mat.
I put them both together and into the frame.
A quick and easy decorative item for our new bedroom! Total cost: $5.32 ($4.99 frame + $.33 scrapbook paper (2 pieces on sale for $.16 each))
