I really don't have an extra $200 laying around to purchase a frame like this, so I made my own for around $2. Here is how I did it...
- Large Picture Frame (just the frame, no glass or backing)
- Twine or Ribbon
- Mini Clips
Now grab some twine or ribbon. I used "Maraschino" bakers twine from The Twinery. I am absolutely in love with all of their twine AND their customer service is fabulous!!
The "Mini Library Clips" are from Stampin' UP! These are just the right size and strong enough to hang on to your card and twine. I have a great Stampin' Up demonstrator if you don't have your own.
On the back of my frame their were those little metal tabs that you can bend to keep the photo and glass in place. I wrapped my twine around these tabs and bent them back on to the frame instead of down and flat. This held onto the twine very securely, but you can always add glue if needed. If your frame doesn't have these tabs, you can staple your twine or ribbon down or use flat thumb tacks.
Here you can see that I just went back and forth wrapping my twine around each tab to create a uniform "web".
When you are finished add your holiday cards with the mini clips.
Again super easy and this project can be really inexpensive! If you receive lots of holiday cards, then make several of these frames and hang them along one wall. What a beautiful display this would make!
