Three Minute Art Project

affordable art with album coversYesterday, I was searching through some old cd cases and came across one with beautiful artwork. I had some extra frames lying around, so I framed them up and now they look great. This was an extremely easy project that took me only three minutes from start to finish! And since I already had the materials, the project literally cost me nothing.

You can do this at home with just a couple of items. Here’s how….

albumart3Step 1: Grab your materials. All you need is an old frame (preferably small and square), scissors, a cd booklet or album cover, and some tape.

Step 3: Tape the artwork into the frame to make sure it doesn’t slide around. And its ready to hang.
