Ok, so you can't really see it that well in the picture, but I assure you it's there!
I decided that I wanted to print some numbers out to frame in these little beauties, but there was no way I was going to print them on boring white printer paper. Nope, I'd rather print them on boring brown packaging paper...just a tad bit snazzier than the white. Just a word of advice for anyone who tries this at home - you have to help guide the paper into the printer or else you will end up with something like this:
But I guess it probably didn't help that I cut the paper crooked and jagged =)
Another word of advice - make sure you leave plenty of space surrounding each number. Yeah, the first time I printed the numbers there was not enough space and the second time I printed...well, see pic above.
Next step is pretty straightforward. Just cut out the numbers and put them in the frames. I tore the cardboard backing off so that they would lay flush and I just used regular ol' tape to keep them in place. I just realized the picture above looks like it's crooked, but it's really just an optical illusion. Hmmm. Anyway, here they are, waiting for phase 2 of the project.
And yes, I realize the numbers are not centered, hehehe. Oh, and you might be wondering why I printed a number 4 and the reason is because I was hoping to find another frame at Michael's, but they were all gone by the time I went back.
Stay tuned for the possible phase 2, which by the way, won't happen for a few months if at all.
