Lately I’ve noticed at the hobby shop that there have been some very cute rolls of wrapping paper in the one dollar bin.
I also had a blank wood frame that I bought a long time ago in my crafty cupboard.
The colors of the wrapping paper were going to match perfectly with a photo of Gigi in her Purple Pumpkin dress I hand painted from a white sheet. The dress I made for Project Run & Play the week I was voted off. I think this is one of my favorite dresses I have made her ever and ever.

The light weight of the paper is perfect for Mod Podge projects! While I love scrapbook paper, it doesn’t always work on projects that require wrapping, like this frame did.
Here’s how to make a wrapping paper covered picture frame…
Start with an unfinished frame like the one above. They are just a couple of dollars at the hobby shop, or you use an old frame you have sitting around collecting dust.
Cut the wrapping paper with about a one inch overlap as pictured above.
Add Mod Podge to the back of the frame and wrap the frame.
Once the paper is dry you can brush a couple of coats of Mod Podge over the frame to seal it and protect it. I used Mod Podge Antique to age the frame, I love how it does that, but normal Mod Podge will work just fine, too!
