LESSology Challenge #8 Altered Frame

Hi Everyone it is time for another challenge at LESSology. Our sponsor this week is Really Reasonable Ribbon. The prize is a pack of Beautiful Ribbon and Baker's Twine, a $15 value.



I needed to do something about this...
My hubby hung this on the door to remind me to turn down the heat before I leave the house. It worked great but I thought I needed to make something a little more attractive than a piece of paper taped to the door. So I made this...




The frame is one of the dollar ones from Michael's but I got it at a garage sale for $0.10. It had some paint on it but it was easy enough to sand and paint over. Then I cut the word winter using Gypsy Wanderings and glued it to some 2008 DCWV Christmas paper. Next I cut some snowflakes using MFT Die-namics. The door is metal so I put two long magnetic strips on the back and woooolaaaa I now have a pretty reminder to turn down the heat before I leave the house.


Here is a video of what I did.




There are so many things you can do with an old frame. I hope you will join us this week at the LESSology challenge blog with your Altered Frame.  I can't wait to see what you create. You can check out what the other DT's have created.
