Here's what the frame looked like before I covered it. I thought it was an interesting shape and had some fun circular openings for photos.
I took the frame and laid it upside down on my patterned paper, traced around it with pencil (on the opposite side of the striped pattern), and then cut the circle out of the patterned paper.
Then I took the back off the frame, laid it on top of my circle, and traced the photo openings on the opposite side of the paper. After you are done tracing, then use an exacto knife or a scissors to cut out the center pieces.
I found these great Junkitz chipboard rounds in a travel theme at Archivers. I used them for embellishments on the front of my frame, and as frames around the Hanna Hollywood & Taxi Images.
