Custom Photo Mat

The easiest project in the world.

Wrap an old photo mat with wrapping paper for a custom look.

1.  Grab some wrapping paper.  This is a roll I picked up at Target back around Christmas.

2.  Cut it to size and poke a small hole in the middle at one corner.

3.  Cut out the center.

4.  Cut in towards the corners  - wrap and tape.  Done!

It's so easy!  And the possibilities are endless!  

I'll be back tomorrow to show you where these landed. 

Have you ever wrapped a photo mat?  Are you as obsessed with wrapping paper as I am?  I think it's a sickness!

  9. I actually wrapped some photo mats in an old t-shirt once...I was desperate for some navy and it was the closest thing I could grab, haha! It actually turned out pretty sweet looking and I still use that mat today. :)
