Happy Friday, everyone!

This week we're going to be turning an old painting into a cute framed memo board!

The only real must have for this project is an old painting or picture frame and clothes pins, the rest is totally up to you! All the things we used in this project were just items leftover in our craft bin. We used an old (scratched) painting, some parchment paper, clothes pins, some glitter scrapbook paper, and super glue.

The first thing you're going to want to do is cover the painting. For this you really can use anything. Scrap fabric, wrapping paper, scrapbook paper, etc. We just happened to have some cute squares of thick parchment paper laying around. Depending on your cover materiel, you may have to play around with which glue works best for your project. (When in doubt use a hot glue gun!)

After we lined our painting with the paper, we cut the glittery scrapbook paper into strips to run diagonally in the corners to tuck other memos into.

You'll also want to decide on placement of your clothespins before you glue them down.

It's that easy! 

Don't let it's blank look fool you, this is a gorgeous board after you load it up!

Cute!
