I picked up about six of these picture frames from...you guessed it, a thrift store that is right here in Newtown. They were a $1 each and I think they may have been used for a shower or wedding as table numbers. Anyhow, I used a couple of them as small gifts for friends. A simple photo in a frame is a nice and inexpensive way to show someone you're thinking about them. I temporarily placed the remaining three frames on a shelf until I had an idea for what to put in them.

Friends and family kept asking, "What do the numbers stand for?" So I decided to do something fun with the frames so that visitors wouldn't wonder any longer.
I thought it would be different to put puzzle phrases into the frames. The first thing I did was perform a Google search for existing puzzle images.
Then, of the phrases that I found I recreated the ones I liked the most in Microsoft Word. It doesn't get any easier then this. A three-year-old could do this!
Because the frames will reside in the guest bedroom for now I chose to stick with black and white. You can get as creative as you'd like by adding pops of color or different background colors.
|I re-created (even came up with my very own) about seven different phrases- I was having too much fun! |
Can you figure out the phrases?
