Projects Board from an Old Framed PhotoI had a lovely, but very large, waterfall photo with a plastic sheet in the front.

When I need to look for a project, I have to find the binder and leaf through the pages. Now I can just look up from my work table and I have all the photos, separated by categories.


I took the plastic out, lined and taped some scrapbooking pages on it to the back side, then turned it over to make it custom. I have seen these made from Dollar Tree frames and just went bigger!

Total Time: 1 Hour

Yield: 1


  • 1 large plastic sheet from framed photo. ($ )
  • 1 hot glue gun ($ )
  • scissors
  • 3 binder clips
  • 6 scrap booking sheet s of your choice and scotch tape ($ )
  • 3 crayons ($ )
  • 1 permanent marker and hot glue gun ($ )


  1. Remove the plastic coating from the frame. This isn't easy, but doable.

  3. Place the coating on the floor or table and choose 6 scrapbooking sheets and tape them down on the back side. You will then turn them over to mark and finish the project.

  5. Mark the categories you want with the right side up. If you want, you can also put them on the paper and then glue them down. Either way works. Glue something like a crayon or domino to the two edges and center, to keep the clips taut as the plastic is too thin for the clips to grasp and hold up the weight.

  7. Choose the printed images of what you want to make and cut them out, taping them into the areas where the like project is.
  8. Photos displayed on a board.
  9. My choices were recycled, outdoor, misc., crochet, sewing, and gifts.
