Today I have THE quickest and easiest DIY project that would be awesome for ANY occasion! With it being Australia Day today, I wanted to grab some props and take some photos of the kids as we were hanging out in the backyard on a hot Aussie afternoon! And how fun to have an oversize vintage-stlye frame set up with the occasion written right on it!
The frame took minutes to make thanks to the new Poster Board from Bazzill Basics (it’s THE perfect size) and the Template Studio system from We R Memory Keepers. It was so quick to just use the vertical and horizontal cutting guides to trim the centre out of the poster board!
I cut the frame 2 & 1/2″ in from the top and sides and 6″ up from the bottom of the poster board. I used the measurement guides along the Template Studio mat to place my guides and the cutting blade along the track makes light work! You could seriously do this 5 minutes before your party!
As a finishing touch, I used a black pen to write on “Australia Day 2016″. I poked tiny holes in the top of the frame to thread fishing line through so I could hang it up outside. Here’s one more photo of my cheeky 4-year-old!
The possibilities are endless! I’m already thinking of how I could decorate one for my daughter’s birthday! What about back-to-school, Christmas, graduations or any celebration really? I think that anything to encourage us to take more photos is a very good thing!
