My 5 year old's eyes popped open REALLY wide when she first saw this because she actually thought I would cut up our "Frosty the Snowman" book. I told her I would never consider cutting up one of my beloved childhood favorites. She said, "good mommy, because you would have to have a long time out for that." So all you do folks is copy or scan your favorite page from a book and hang on the wall. You could embellish any way you like, but I prefer to keep mine plain. Maybe the one that goes in the children's bedrooms will have a little more glitter and sparkle.
My grandfather built the frame and I just love it. I believe I had it as a baby with a cross stitch of a yellow duck. The wood is natural just how I like it. No bleaching, no sitting in the sun, no sanding or extra fussing. Easy peasy project. Old frame + Old Picture ( scanned from book) + Cut & Trim out and hung on the wall.
