|Redoute floral print from a 5" by 7" planner|
- 5" easel stands
- 5" by 7" photo mats (with a 3 1/2" by 5 1/2" opening)
- Cardboard cut 6 1/2" by 4 1/2"
- Artwork, greeting cards, postcards, or photographs larger than the mat opening but no bigger than the outside dimension
Once you've got your supplies, all you have to do is sandwich the cardboard, the artwork, and the mat together and prop it up in the frame. Because everything is loose, you can easily change the artwork to match your mood, the season, or add a festive touch for a holiday or special occasion. Here's two examples of different looks that I've tried myself:
|5" by 7" Tiffany greeting card from the Metropolitan Museum of Art|
|5" by 7" greeting card with vintage artwork from Etsy|
If you don't have money in your budget for picture frames, can't find a style of frame that you like, or just want a display set-up that's as quick to change as your style or mood is, I highly recommend that you give this project a try!
