Really Quick Framed Doilies

Here's one that I was able to complete.

I found plain black plastic frames at Michael's for 50 cents.  (Whatta ya gonna do - when something's .50, you buy it.)  4 sheets of linen scrapbook paper for .12 a piece, and 4 doilies for $1.00 a piece.  The doilies were in the dollar bins.

So I just trimmed the paper to fit inside of the frame.  Used some double-sided tape to attach the doilies and VOILA.  As you can see by the pictures, I could have done a little better job with the doilies.  If you iron them before you tape them, I'm sure that they would be more even.

So, let's see $1.72 times 4 is $6.88, plus tax.  Not bad and it only took about 30 minutes start to finish!
