Hello friends. Recently I went to Ikea for some window shopping and also to gather some inspirations. Don’t you just love that place? Anyways I couldn’t resist grabbing a couple of the Tolsby frames. I have seen a few ideas on altering them on Pinterest and I thought I’d give it a go myself. So with the help of the Apple chevron grosgrain ribbon and a fantastic. Dr. Seuss quote, I was able to create a frame fit for my bookshelf.
1. First off cut your cardstock to the size of the frame insert. Mine was 4x6. I then added some thin strips of adhesive on the top and bottom portion of the paper and adhered the ends of my ribbon.
And here’s some close ups of the finished frame….
Creating a ribbon background to any project creates some unique interest and texture. I hope you’ll give it a go soon.
