I Could {Sooo} Make That!


Framed Fortunes

Posted on December 26, 2010 at 2:29 AM

{Not Pictured}
Scissors, Ruler, Glue Stick, Thin Cardboard & Spray Paint

Step One:
Remove glass from one (or more) frame(s) and prep them for spray painting.

Step Two:
Spray paint color of choice.  I used several (about 3) coats to make sure the wood grain didn't show through.

Step Three:
Cut a piece of thin cardboard (like in step 9 of this post) and spray mount it to the back of a piece of fabric of your choice. and trim 1" larger than the board. Then snip the corners close to the corners of the board.

Step Four:
Apply glue stick to back edge (like in step four of this tutorial) and fold the flap back.

Step Five:
Grab your fortunes and a ruler and line them up in a row vertically.  This step is entirely up to your taste.  I chose the OCD route. Then mount with a glue stick.

Step Six:
Do the same to the remaining boards. (if any)

Step Seven:
Clean the glass and set on top of the mounted fortunes.  Then when frames are completely dry, install the art into them.

Step Eight:
Hang on wall and enjoy.
