CU OK Dollar Store Frames

Another freebie from my recent dollar store trip! I found these frames and thought they were cute and would be fun for your layouts. You can recolor them and you can hang a tag from the twirly parts or use them as “clips”.  Then I brought them home and noticed how janky (cheap) they were. What do you expect for a dollar? But they really needed more work than I thought. See what I mean:

Notice how crooked the frames were inside the squares and the frames themselves were bent and warped. So I just extracted them completely. Here’s what I did as an example with one of the finished frames.

Now that is creative. You made lemonade from lemons. I am a dollar store nut and buy off the wall things from there to craft with, never thought of turning it to digital - you rock!
