A "Boo" Frame

Karen from The Graphics Fairy offers free downloadable graphics; the Boo garland above is one. Karen is also hosting Brag Monday, where you can show off a project you've done using the graphics she offers. I'm slipping this post in quick so I can link up before it's closed.

I was in Kohl's tonight and saw they were having a sale on frames {40-50% off}. I saw a frame that had dividers for three pictures and thought this might work. I took my package of card stock scraps {best $2.99 I ever spent ~ I've been using these a lot}, hoped for orange card stock {found it} and cut it to fit.

I then printed out the BOO letters but since the openings were too small to include the whole graphic, I just cut the letters out. I used my glue stick to glue them to the card stock and then just put it in the frame.

And there you have it! Easy Peasy!

Thanks, Karen!

  9. It looks great! The color is perfect too.

  10. I assure you Donna ~ it was very easy! Done in a half hour.

    @NiceCrane Designs ~ These are great for me because I can't find some of my Halloween stuff and last year I got rid of the stuff that was looking scarey in a bad way.

    Thanks, Karen! I almost missed it. You should have seen me scrambling last night to get it done and the post up! : )

  11. Thank you, Barbara Jean! Gives me the seasonal touch with spending a lot of money ~ I love that!

    Thanks, Liz! Very quick and easy ~ go for it! It would look great with your harlequin lamp. : )

    Thank you, Tammy! I couldn't believe the sale they were having. I think everything I bought last night was on sale or clearance. Of course, I only went in there for a top . . .

  12. Barbara Jean ~ That should be "without" spending a lot of money!

  13. Thanks, Lisa! I'm all about simple projects!

    PK ~ It is cute! I like it! It looks like the last "O" is not lined up right in the pictures, but in real life it is. Just thought I'd mention that! : )

    Thanks, Christine! I didn't really have any scrap book papers that were good color-wise and then I remembered that card stock scrap package I bought. Thankfully, there was orange in there.

  14. Very the frame and of course the price! I think I will have to head over to the Graphics Fairy.


  15. I was suprised that no one has commented that the Graphic Fairy link is not working. :(

  16. Thank you, Chelsea! Easy and inexpensive ~ my favorites!

    Thank you for letting me know, Laura. I had no idea and normally I do check. Just goes to show I must do it every time!


I always enjoy reading your comments! Kathy
