friday creative

today's friday creative is a super quick, easy & quirky idea! a vintage record "frame"...

-record (check out thrift store for awesome deals)
-round template (get creative, a plate, cup, etc.)

how to:
-crop your photo into a circle of desired size using your template (that makes it sound complicated...just trace your cup or plate, etc. on your photo and cut out). i kept my photo to just about the same size as the original record label but you could absolutely go bigger.
-adhere your photo to your record with your favorite adhesive.
-and ta-da! now display your cute & funky new "frame" on a shelf, in a shadowbox or add a bracket/hook to the back and hang on the wall.

happy friday!
xo, carly

p.s. thanks to the boregos for letting me use their photos! aren't they cuties?!
