Friday Challenge on EIO

It's Friday and that means another challenge hosted by a DT member on Embellish-It Scrapbooking. Today's challenge was to alter something for decor. I picked up several scrap mat boards quite awhile back that a gal that used to frame had for free in her store-can't beat FREE Ü I got the idea for this from a friend of mine who had made one. She got hers in a kit, but I have no idea who the kit was by. Here is how I made mine:
I cut two pieces of mat board 8.5 x 11.
Punched holes in the corners and center bottom
Wrapped each matboard with patterned paper
Punched holes thru the paper
Decorated the front piece (close up of embellishment)
Screwed the two pieces together in the corners with short screws
Used long screw in the center with rubber stopper. This keeps it from scratching my shelf that I set it on. Here is the back view at the bottom. Come and play with us. Click here to see the challenge.
