Then I found this idea on Pinterest. We headed to the thrift store to see if we could make it work.
Sarah found the perfect picture (size) at the thrift store and then we headed to Hobby Lobby for a yard of fabric.
Miss Sarah got to work removing the paper backing.
We removed the picture and placed the fabric, face down, on the glass. I was being lazy and didn't want to measure.
We added the picture back, placing the picture facing out, because the matting would have affected the fabric. The back of the picture provided a flat surface against the fabric. Does that make sense?
Then I trimmed the fabric, leaving two inches of fabric to fold over the picture.
Using double sided tape we taped the four corners first.
Then we taped the sides.
I stapled the mat to the frame, to help keep it secure. I plan to add paper backing to the back of the frame, but can't seem to find the roll of paper. Does this happen to you? I am sure I put it somewhere for safe keeping, maybe too safe!
Next we moved the hardware.
Ta da....Miss Sarah's newest wipe board. Now I am thinking we need a smaller version for the kitchen!
I am so happy Sarah needed this for her students!
Hope her students love it as much as we do!
Also excited we actually completed a project
I pinned on Pinterest!
