Nicole™ Crafts 10 X 10 Round Scalloped Photo Frame

Quick Grip Glue Tip: To speed drying process, pull apart items glued together and reposition. Use the pre-cut vinyl designs from Nicole Crafts as a mask. These decorative frames from Nicole Crafts have a lot of surface for decorating. Whether you want to paint them, use Mod Podge decoupage, vinyl or whatever your favorite decorating medium of choice, these can be hung without even a photo in the middle! Show off  your stamped or scrapbooked art, children's drawings or leave the opening...open.
