Frugal Friday- Creative Copying

Perhaps you are like me, you browse Etsy marveling at other peoples talent. The gorgeous jewelery, amazing knitting and wonderful quilts. One day I stumbled upon custom photo collages from Frame The Alphabet. I though to myself I could do that! So the above picture is a creative copy cat of the collage I made for my sister.
The ones at Frame The Alphabet sell for $99.99 to $109.99.
The one I made:
Frame $24.99
Photo Printing $ 1.33
Background paper $ 3.30
Matting paper $ 3.00
____________________
Grand Total $ 32.62

A savings of $67.37 to $77.37

For more Frugal Friday head on over to The Shabby Nest (don't you just love the name of that blog?)
