"Halloween Cutie" Picture Frame

Have you see all the picture frames that have popped up on the net lately.  I have. And they are so cute. It reminded me.  I had this wood craft frame sitting in my "Don't know what to do with this"  box.  Every once in a while I go though it and pull stuff out.  So I grabbed the frame and went to work on it.

I didn't take any pictures before hand.  As I wasn't sure what I was going to do with it.  But it was just one of those bare wood craft frames from Provo Craft. I got this years ago and not even sure where. But now I want more. LOL!

Here is my finished project.  And do you know. This is my first craft project in 3 months. (Remember I had taken time of)  But I'm back and ready to go now.  I had so much fun making this.

This wood frame is 6.5 x 8.5 by itself.  I painted the wood frame black.  And used mod podge to attach my Target dollar spot Halloween paper. Its really cute paper.  I inked the edges after with black so you don't see the white paper edge. For a more finished look.  But to me the frame was just to plain with just a ribbon.  So yep.  You guessed it.  I just had to go design a frame for it. LOL!

So I have a brand new file I designed on Sunday.  Just for this frame.  But its so cute. I think I'm going to cut another one to use on a layout.  This new file is "RM00158 Spiderweb Frames Border"    The frame has Spider Webs and bats in the corner. And is 2 players. In the file its 3.  I didn't use the 3rd layer as its actually my wood frame.   I measured my wood frame.  Made rectangle in KNK the size of the frame and designed around it so I knew it would fit. 

The title "Halloween Cutie" is a title from my other new file "RM00157 Halloween Titles 1"    And the   

Spider Web in the corner is last Fridays Freebie File.  "RM00008 Spider Web" 

I then added rhinestones to the center of the Spider Webs.  I love how this turned out.  And think I need to make more of these cute frames.
