i have a newspaper article that i want to frame and hang in my kitchen. i went to Michael's yesterday and the least expensive custom frame was $350! yikes, i had *no* idea that custom frames were so expensive!
at any rate, i was hoping to put something together myself. the frame needs to be around 27 x 17 so i doubt i will find a picture frame that size but was hoping someone here would have a clever or unique idea of how i could go about doing this...thanks!
Not much help here, but just wanted to say that unless you can make it airtight, newspaper is pretty bad about discoloring over time.
If it were smaller, decopaging might work, but the size you want is pretty large for that.
Sorry I can't help more.
take it to office supply store that does laminating.
have it laminated
then can mount to foam core
then can buy inexpensive molding at home depot/lowes and glue it to the edge for a frame effect.
and there are cheap poster frames available too!!
but do laminate it to protect it long term
My new Michael's ad shows custom frames half off, if that helps at all!
thanks veejaytx and doug! i did have the artice laminated, i was gonna go today to pick up some paint at Lowes so i'll have to check out the molding well i'm there. also, i forgot about the half off coupon that Michael's offer on occasion, thank for reminding me : )
