March is National Craft Month and the group of Deflecto designers are getting "crafty" this month. Please check out the ideas from the group for some inspiration and the Deflecto Facebook page. The first thoughts given to the use of any frame is of course for showing photos. For the three Deflecto frames shown here, each is being used very differently.
The Green Border 4" x 6" Frame was decorated with some ribbons and adhesive backed shamrock shapes in a very easy, simple fashion. A computer generated sign was printed with a statement and can be used as a decorative element on a table for any St. Patrick's Day celebration.
What has become another favorite of mine is the 3-Sided Frame. Simply cut three decorative papers to fit into each side of the frame. Wrap with some gold, wired ribbon, tie some bows. Add other embellishments if desired. Insert a narrow vase into the center of the frame to hold flowers. This would work as a simple centerpiece or table decoration. Use different papers, ribbons and embellishments to fit any theme or occasion for your table or buffet decorations.
The Slanted Acrylic 5" x 7" was made into a chalkboard memo board. A sheet of chalkboard material was attached with double-sided adhesive onto the frame. NOTE: Fold a strip of black card stock, the same width of the chalkboard material, and tape to the underside of this piece before applying the piece to the frame. This will act as a ledge to hold a chalkboard marker in place. Cut a decorative piece of paper to insert into the frame and tie a length of ribbon onto the top for a little decorative element.
