Nestie Storage

When life gives you lemons make lemonade!
When we moved into our new home here on Ft Meade the movers broke several of my picture frames and being the hoarder that I am I couldn't toss them. I put them in Hubbies man cave so they wouldn't be in my way lol. Anyhoo my friend Jeaneen placed an order with Oriental Trading company for some magnet sheets. She asked our stamping group if anyone wanted to do a group order YEAH! So this is what I came up with...
Broken 10x13 picture frame.
Step 1:
Step one take cardboard out of frame clean any dust and or glass off cardboard.

Step 2:
Lay magnet sheet under cardboard and trace line, cut off extra.

This is what the magnet sheets look like.

Step 3:
Peal off backing no need for glue the adhesive is pretty good.

This is what it looks like after you get it covered with magnet material.
Step 4:
Cut your Designer Paper 10X9
and two 10x2 pieces.

Step 5:
Cover area with mod podge (I like matte finish).
Step 6:
Lay down your designer paper onto glue. Rub out any air bubbles and let dry. After it's dry trim edge with scissors don't worry about it being perfect it's not going to show
after it's in the frame.

Step 7:
Coat the Designer Paper with another layer of Mod Podge (matte used here). Let dry and do it again this just protects your paper and it's optional but a good idea. Let dry between coats.
After project is dry move to step eight.

Step 8:
Put your frame back together and hang.
Add your Nesties and you are done! I just love how these came out.

This is really a simple project.
Hope you enjoy!
Supplies needed:
10x13 Picture frame (no glass)
Mod Podge (matte)
foam brush
2. 8.5x11 Adhesive Magnet sheets (oriental trading)
Designer Paper 10x9 and 2 @ 2x10 (Stampin Up Morning Sunshine)

Very Cool Amanda. I saw something on Spitcoast yesterday where someone had done something like that. It's "changeable" art! I love it.
