Custom Picture Frame

This is what I started with:

-Picture Frame (I got this from Target, my favorite store ever! It was a set of 5 different sizes for $10.
-Scotch Transfer Tape (I'll have this in my store because it is the MOST AWESOME tape ever!! It comes in HUGE rolls and is really inexpensive, and it works for glass, plastic, paper, ribbon, and is permanent.) Terrifically Tacky tape will work too.
-1 yard of ribbon per frame (I got all ribbons shown for $1 each at Hobby Lobby and Michaels.)

Start with a frame of your choice. You don't even need to take out the glass, just make sure that the glass is clean.
Tape your ribbon to the glass right up against the edges of the frame, overlapping each corner as shown below. I tucked the ends under the frame for a nice clean look.

You can add embellishments. I tried the buttons here. Also try larger scrapbooking brads for a metallic accent, flat beads or anything else you like.
I layered two ribbons to make the one at the top. The patterned one which matches my guest bathroom exactly and then a smaller width lime green ribbon to frame it out a little more. I'll be putting it in my bathroom but need a humorous quote to print out and go inside. Any ideas?
All in all the project only took me about 5 minutes and cost about $3. Very easy to customize. It would make a great gift with a photo or quote in it. Don't forget Mother's Day is coming up soon! Check places like Ross, Tuesday Morning, Goodwill, and Big Lots for inexpensive frames.
