DIY: Faux Metal Frames

My camera just doesn't do this project justice. While doing this project I realized that I enjoy projects that I can work on and finish in a couple hours. I am just not patient enough. I saw this project here. She is so talented! I copied her tutorial only I used Cereal boxes instead of toilet paper and I made 2 of them and inch smaller. Also my patterns are really similar with a few changes.
They turned out so good. I even can't believe that these are made of Cardboard.
I can't wait to hang these up. Maybe this 3 day weekend I can convince my husband to help me out.
Thanks Suzy for the wonderful idea. You are so talented.

Wow! That's pretty amazing. I hate the price of the metal ones in stores! Come check out my bracelet I made out of a mac & Cheese box and yarn. I have a feeling you would appreciate it! I am your newest follower.

Wow, that's cardboard!?! That's really cool. I love how they look. You could even paint them in a variety of colors for all sorts of different looks.

Thanks for sharing,
