Day 4: Fabric wrapped frame

I saw this cute idea on Pinterest and put it in my "ideas" folder.  (The Office anyone?)  
No, It's in my DIY folder. 

We have a rubbermaid tote in the basement with ugly, broken, etc, frames....perfect for this.

And the weirdest thing happened.  I didn't get rid of all this fabric!  *horder*

So, I picked out a simple pattern that would work anywhere in the house.

Now, I think she used like a Mod Podge in the original above.  
I'm a lazy crafter.  Glue gun it is!

I didn't glue every time I went around.  I did a few across each section. 
 And used a little more on the corners.  


 A normal person would be done. 
I put a piece of twine across the back and added some magnets.

Then I covered 2 tiny clothes pins ($ spot at Target, right now....GO!) with denim fabric.  
Or is that just denim?  
Or is it fabric fabric?

An the perfect idea for Trixiegirl business cards.  NO, I won't leave them up there.

You can do anything.  Smaller kids artwork, note cards, pictures.  
 It makes that cluttered (yes, I'm talking to you) fridge look a little prettier.  :)

Have a great day!
