I found this cute frame at the dollar store; what a find! I bought four of them.
First, take out the glass inside and use it as a template. I used a pop tart box to make the squares.
Second, place the glass on the wrong side of the fabrics and draw a line. You will need about 1/2" extra around the line, so you can tape the fabric to the back of the cardboard.
On the wrong side of the fabric, place the cardboard that you cut out and tape the corners. (That way the corners will be less bulky.)
Tape the sides.
Put it in to the frame without the glass. I saved all my glasses, so in the future if I change my mind I can use the frame for something else.
It took me less than 30 minute to complete the project. I love quick and easy projects like this. On top of that the whole thing cost me about 4 dollars!
I took them to Rachel's room and did this:
I decided to go with the second option. I love the unified look. The great thing is I can always change the fabrics if I want to. I think I am going to make more of these for diffrent areas of my house.
