Now on with my post!
As most of you know, I'm the assistant coach for my daughter's middle school basketball team. You can go HERE to see how I became the assistant coach, and HERE to read about the tournament.
We are going to have a banquet for the girl's so, I thought it would be neat to make some frames for the girls as a keep sake.
Isn't it way cute? I think so!
Now let's see how I did this!
I bought 12 frames from Michael's
12 wood frames $1.00 each
12 pictures printed at CVS .28 each
Black spray paint ( I started to use the expensive paint, but realized I had 12 frames to do! What was I thinking?)
12 tags (got from my sister)
2 spools of basketball ribbon (my mom got for me. I couldn't find any ribbon where I live.)
I spray painted each frame with 2 coats of paint front and back.
I got out my stamps and distressing ink.
I distressed each tag front and back.
I stamped one side with a basketball and the other side with the girls number.
I tied the ribbon to make a bow, and used my glue gun to hold the tag. I put a dab of glue to the back so the tag would stay..
Didn't they turn out great? Don't you love what paint can do?
I made 9 frames and ran out of ribbon! I searched and searched with no luck, so what did I do? I called my mom, and guess what she found! Yep, she found me some ribbon! Thanks mom!
