Hi everyone! Tara, from Secretbees Studio here today with a super cute home project that is not only functional but looks awesome too! Sometimes we (our family) need a little reminder of the things that have to be done around the house. Using a regular picture frame and the adorable Simple Stories 'Domestic Bliss' paper collection, you can create a charming way to help them remember!
I picked up a simple 8x10 frame at my local craft store for this project. You can use any size, but this one is great for showing off the beautiful 'Domestic Bliss' papers and embellishments! You will also need dry erase markers for this - any color will do. Gather all of your supplies and get ready to make something awesome!
I started by using some of the letters from the 4x6 stickers to create a title for my chart. It's always a good idea to use a ruler, or another piece of paper to align your letters evenly! Once positioned where you want them, press firmly so they stay in place.
I also layed out how I wanted my chart to look with the patterned papers, stickers and embellishments before I put it in the frame. The colorful weekly list is one of the 4x6 vertical element cards in the paper pack and worked perfectly! Keep in mind that if you are layering lots of paper together with thick embellishments, it may be harder to fit behind the glass.
The finished product is sweet and charming and so much better than the actual housework! My favorite part is the kitty sitting in the laundry basket with the sentiment 'Every Day I'm Launderin'. Too funny! I added some special touches to the outside of the frame using more of the chipboard, stickers and washi tape from the collection to make it even cuter!
Writing with dry erase markers is smooth and easy and will not leave any residue behind when you need to change things up!
There are so many adorable sentiment stickers in this collection that I couldn't resist using one layered over a label sticker to make a tag for the metal slot at the bottom of the frame.
A close up of the tag I made using one from the Bits & Pieces layered with stickers and chipboard! I just love the laundry basket brad in the center of the twine bow!
This home project was so easy and fun to create that I made another one for the weekly dinner menu! The 'Domestic Bliss' collection even has cute embellishments for that!
Once the week is over and you need to write something new in, just take a tissue or paper towel and wipe off the old. Easy peasy!
Thanks for taking the time to check out my project! I hope this inspires you to create something cute and functional for your home!
