Altered Acrylic Frame

This was another gift I did for Christmas this year and I got the idea from the Splitcoast Stampers website. I made several for my mother and sisters in law and was in such a rush to get them sent out that I forgot to take pictures! Grrr! This is one that I made for my friend's mother and fortunately, I didn't have to mail it!
The frames are 5 X 7 and are from Dollar Tree. I cut a piece of paper to size and slid it inside the frame. The outer frame was created on the Gypsy by using a frame from Art Philosophy and welding a border image from Ribbons and Rosettes to the top. I added a piece of ribbon and lace to the top before adding the calendar, which I purchased here. The pen holder was created by folding a piece of 1/2" X 6" strip of paper, gluing it together leaving a loop on the end, then gluing it to the frame before adding the Post-It pad. I stamped the sentiment, from Hero Arts, on the top Post-It then adhered the pad to the frame with the ATG.  The flower pot image is from the Bloom Lite Cartridge. I used different images and made the outer frames slightly different on each of them. You'll have to take my word for it about how cute they all turned out!
Thanks for stopping by!
