Graduation Photo Frame

It's graduation time again! This is one of the most exciting times in a person's life, and is always a great opportunity for some unforgettable photos. Make sure that you display those memories -- it's easy with a Deflecto acrylic frame and a few simple embellishments!

I started with Deflecto Crafts 4x6 purple border craft frame. I love the transparent quality of acrylic frames so I wanted to play off of that and use translucent embellishments that wouldn't overwhelm the frame. I chose some silver rub-ons to go around the frame opening. Rub-ons are fantastic to use on these frames; they are easy to apply to the acrylic and they adhere beautifully. Plus they are crazy easy to use - just rub and go!

Next I chose a large fancy "frame" rub-on to apply to the bottom left corner. In keeping with the translucent feel, I used a piece of vellum printed with the word "dream". I fussy-cut the word and adhered it straight onto the rub-on using vellum adhesive (this is a staple in my craft room because vellum adhesive won't show through). I finished by adding a beautiful glittered flower from Prima.

This frame would be a great display piece for a graduation party - so inexpensive and so easy!
