Graduation Photo Frame

5/24/2016 | Lynn Lilly
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 memorable 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 4×6 purple border craft frame. I love the transparent quality of the 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 also be a great display piece for a graduation party – so inexpensive and so easy to do!
