Michael's Dollar Frames

I made several of these at Christmas time for a craft fair and for teacher & friend gifts, and they were a big hit and super easy to make. You start with one of the wooden 8" x 8" frames from Michael's that you can purchase for $1, then set your printer to print on 8" x 8" paper (I trimmed down 12" x 12" to @ 8-1/4" x 8-1/4" so that there was a little overlap). I also stamped on some, diecut words and shapes-- you can do a million different things with these. The I ran the paper through my Xyron, attached it to the frame and used a craft knife to cut out the center hole and trim the edges to fit. Then all you do is decoupage and you're done.
