Filling empty wall space is not always easy especially when looking for just the right piece. Then once you find it, the price tag often creates STICKER SHOCK!! What if there was a way to fill up wall space without breaking the bank? Well guess what, there is.
I do a lot of shopping at craft stores and tend to find myself in the cardstock aisle. The world of cardstock has become vast and modern which makes it easy to use for more than just scrapbooking. I decided to purchase a few sheets that could be used as a backdrop for photos and also to be used in frames as décor. I quickly realized that finding a frame to fit 12 x 12 cardstock may be a little challenging. So instead I took an alternative route.
I decided to create a makeshift frame. I used kraft cardstock as a hard backing and ribbon to create the border for the frame. Used a little adhesive and I had a DIY ribbon frame. Less than $2 dollars to make and I had a wall filler. This is can be used as a temporary solution or permanent, it's all up to you. Since there is no plastic or glass covering the front, make sure to place it away from all water sources.
