Monogram Frames

Hello everyone,
and Merry Christmas!!!!!!!
Sherri here from Sherri's Crafty Place
I can't believe how fast this year has gone by, I am so honored to be part of Sheila's Sassy Designers.....I can't believe that I am part of this Amazing group.....
Thank you so much Sheila for letting me share with your friends today...
Today is an Idea I saw on the Cricut Message Board, I am So sorry  that I can not remember who it was, I will look for it, and try to post it, because she did an amazing job and deserves the credit.....

Now onto my project...
A Monogram Frame




using this Diploma Frame, I purchased at Wal-Mart for $3.00
 I Cut the back off using my Exacto Knife,
 then using my glue gun, I glued the glass to the frame....
here is the frame with the glass glued to it, I didn't want my frame to have a back...
 and here is the finished frame, I used my Gypsy to weld the lines to the G then I had to use my exacto knife to cut the middle of the G,
the font I am using is from Martha Stewart Seasonal Cake Art Cartridge, and the & is from, Gypsy Font .....
I used Cricut Vinyl, and put it on the Front of my Frames, these were pretty easy to make, but you DEFINITELY want to used transfer tape or my Cheaper version....... drywall mesh tape, it works GREAT and I have used the same pieces of Drywall tape to make 6 of the frames so far...not to bad for dollar store tape...there are so many possibilities for these frames, I hope you will give it a try, and be sure to let me know if you make some I would LOVE to see them,
 I am making 9 of these for gifts this year , and I just LOVE how they turned out, I hope you do too.....
I would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas !!!!!

I love this project, I have to try this! Thanks for the tip about the drywall mesh tape. I'm definitely going to try that! I was just thinking today that I'd like to cut some snowflakes out of white shelf-liner and put them on my front window, but I didn't have transfer tape. Now I can do my project. YAY!!
