Fathers Day Must Makes

Well a couple years ago I made this frame for Father's Day.
I bought the raw frame at Michael's and used Modge Podge to adhere the paper as well as top coat the finished product.
I also took some chalk ink to the edges and went a little heavy to give it that MANLY feel--LOL
I really like the little bit of twine I added and the metal accents to the plate.  The is from one of the Cricut Cake cartridges.

Leave those comments for your chance to win one of the 5 D sized stamp sets from CTMH this week--
Make it a great one-
