I was cruising the entries for Crafting with the Stars (which you can enter to compete in through Thursday, September 15th....so make sure you crafty types go check out that link!) and saw this great tip from Kari over at The Sunset Lane.
I love a good matted picture and frame, but sometimes they are so expensive! I sometimes just buy a cheap frame and matte and spray paint them to black frames and white matte. But, I had quite a collection of frames with no mattes. So, I made my own :)
You know what the best part is? You can buy the big posterboard you need to do this at the Dollar Store and it's enough for several frames. Which means you can matt your photos for about $0.33 (or less!) instead of for $5 or more that you'd spend on pre-made frames.
