I saw the most darling frame at Kohl's one day while I was shopping, but it was a Christmas frame that said "tis the Season" made using the clear glass rocks. I thought that would be the perfect birthday gift for my sister in law, if I changed it up a bit.
So I picked up an unfinished 5x7 frame at Michael's, with a coupon of course, they are regularly $4.99.
I knew I wanted to add some texture, so I added scrapbook paper with Mod Podge.
I sanded the edges to remove the excess paper and to distress it a bit.
Then for the wording, I printed off the word "family" on my printer and then placed a clear rock on each letter with a little Mod Podge.
Once it's dry, cut around each letter then attach to your frame with a little more Mod Podge.
At this point it looked pretty cute, but I wanted to add a little something more. I found this punch at Michael's on clearance and wanted to try it out.
So I cut some polka dot paper and added it to the top and bottom of the frame as well. I just used some glue to attach it.
I plan on making several more of these for birthday gifts next year. You could easily change up the saying and colors. These would make fun Christmas gifts too.
