Frame a message for Spring with Deflecto

Spring is almost here!  This month is St. Patty's Day and then Easter!  I love this season; when everything is fresh and green and new life is everywhere!

I will show you how to make a pretty frame into a message board for any season.  This frame has a green border and is perfect for the month of March!

You will need:

Deflecto:  4" x 6" Green Bordered Frame #69574CR; Wet Erase Markers #899103CR
Cardstock:  Black 5" x 7" rectangle
Adhesions:  Paper Daisies & Butterfly
Washi Tape:  1/2" Black with silver stripes
Paper Trimmer
Embossing Folder:  Damask
Embossing Machine


1.  Emboss the black cardstock using the Damask patterned embossing folder.  (Or a pattern of your choosing.)  Insert the paper into the frame.

2.  Adhere a strip of washi tape along the bottom of the frame.

3.  Embellish the frame with the self-adhesive shapes.

4.  Write the sentiment on the front of the frame using a wet erase marker of your choice.

Variation for St. Patty's Day shown below:

  1. I like your new blog header! this is a neat little frame. I've thought of doing that before but just never get around to it. Marilyn

    1. Thank you, M Jo. I created the header in PicMonkey. I wanted a new blog so just did it one day to get it done. I have wondered if it is too large...but decided not to mess with it again for now. :-)
