Cheap and Easy

And no, I’m not talking about me.

Ba-dum-bump… ching!

Is this thing on?

I finished my cheap and easy project. Now I have to figure out exactly what I’m going to do with them. Hang them in the dining room? Hang them in my guest scrap room? I’m not sure.

The whole project cost me about $7 because all I needed were the frames (thrift store) and the poster board for matting. I could’ve gotten regular matting – but I was even too cheap for that.

I actually took the time to MEASURE the poster board so that all of the matting looked the same. That was probably the hardest part for me. I almost caved and just tore the paper and plopped it on the poster board all rough and edgy-like. But, I perservered… and now have these simple, pretty picture frames.

I like how they came out. I know it’s not the most original idea – but it kept my mind occupied from being sad. Plus, I’m just happy that I finished a project. *whew*
