Recycled calendar

Dear friends,

This March at IQCG I have set the theme - "Recycle / Upcycle". Have recycled calendar in to photo frame.

I have hoarded 2015 desktop calendar to make a tabletop photo frame.

I just removed the calendar sheets and painted the whole stand with white fabric paint.Then fixed the doilies and watercoloured it with poster colours. Stenciled it with modelling paste and decorated it with laces.

Fixed the photo slot in the centre by using old invitation and transparent sheet. Added quilled flowers and metal butter and added glitters to beautify. Printed the sentiments and pasted it over the doilies.My tabletop photo frame is ready.

Look forward to your altered / recycled projects. Click here to know the details about the challenge.
