Off the Page with Susie!

Hello and welcome!

Susie hosting the blog today and I have a little project featuring the Adventure Awaits Collection from Quick Quotes. Now that Mother's Day is in the rear view mirror I thought I would get you looking forward to Father's Day with one of my favorite gift ideas - an altered acrylic frame.

I picked up this acrylic frame for less than $2 and removed the inserts.

  • I created a one piece replacement that measures 7"x10.5".  
  • The striped band across the bottom is 7"x1.75".  
  • I added a couple of pieces from the Quotes and Phrases page before I slipped it into the frame and turned it on its side.
  • I cut squares from a mix of papers in the collection and then stacked them together, adhering each layer slightly askew.  
  • I used double sided tape to add the paper stack on top of the acrylic frame.  
  • I also used the double sided tape to add the clip.
  • The photo is 3.5" square.  I intend to replace the photo occasionally - or maybe just add more on top!
The bottom of the frame holds a 3" square note pad.  I created a simple cover - which I adorned with another picture - and adhered the whole thing with double sided tape.
