More Altered Frames

I told you several posts ago that I would share some more of the altered frames that I made for my craft fair. Did I mention then how much fun (and easy!!) these are?!

I used The Angel Company's paper to alter these after I first painted the frames white. The frame pictured above is my favorite one!! It is made with TAC's Toodle Loo paper and would be great for a baby or toddler's room! The tag (you can see a blurry close-up below) was a tag that was provided with the paper kit and then I stamped the Lion from the "On Safari" set, colored his mane and tail green with aquacolor crayons and then added the white dots with a souffle pen. It matches the lion in the paper pack perfectly and looks like it was printed directly onto the tag.

The next frame uses the TAC "Hip Hop" paper pack which has some great papers in it! The small square tags are included in this paper pack as well and I inserted black brads into the centers and popped them up using pop dots. The yellow strip has been crimped with a paper crimper to add even more dimension to the frame. All of these frames have been Mod Podged over the top to seal it and give it a protective coating.

And, how can you not love the paper used on the frame below? This is from the "Mimi" collection and I think it is beautiful! I cut the paper into strips leaving white edges and added a few embellishments to dress it up. The original design for this frame and the Toodle Loo frame pictured above came from a demo at seminar. I took her design and ran with it because I thought that it was so adorable!

These would make great Christmas gifts for family and friends (or for yourself!!). All you need is a frame, some white paint, adhesive and some TAC Patterned paper! I will note too that if you use a frame that has been painted on previously, depending on the finish, you may need to sand it down and then paint it white to give the paint a little grip to stick to. If you use an unfinished wood frame it is ready for you to paint directly on.


  1. I Love all of these frames, they really showcase TAC's great paper!

  2. Girl, you are on a roll with these altered frames!! I especially love the girly one! Reminds me of all the frames I bought at Target last year.....that are sitting in a box!

  3. I love the frames you've done. I was on a web search looking for frame ideas as my neighbor has asked me to do one for her DD. Would you mind letting me know how much you charge for them? I have no idea what to tell my neighbor. ( mnhyrkas at yahoo .dot. com (

  4. Oh, I love them all. Very creative and fun!


  5. These are all adorable! Love, love, love them!
