Festive Frames

I saw this idea in a recent Holiday publication and wanted to give it a try. It will also be the project for my November Club. Would you believe that the base for this frame starts with a light switch cover found at your local hardware store! I found these white plastic covers for a dimmer switch/dial and thought it would be a perfect frame for any picture. They are also very inexpensive so I can create a few of them to give as gifts this Holiday season.

I covered the entire frame with some B&T paper from the Jingle paper collection leaving the center circle open. Using the existing hole I added an eyelet for strength to hold the frame with grosgrain ribbon. A few embellishments and a Holiday sentiment and it's ready to be hung on a tree or anywhere within your seasonal decor.
Just for fun I grabbed this metal frame to decorate too! This one is a little bit more pricey, but looks so elegant. It's reflective quality makes it fabulous, but not too easy to photograph. Imagine it hung from the branch of your Christmas tree with white lights dancing all around it!

What awesome projects for just a dollar and change!

Did you place anything on top of the photo?(tranpency?) How did you attach the photo to the back of the frame?
Thanks, wonderful idea!!
