Framed and Embellished St. Patrick's Day Printables

Don't you LOVE all those St. Pat's Day printables out there?! Aren't some of them SO cute! I thought so, too, and since I have a few Irish-lovin' friends, I thought I'd make some little surprises for them.

Hey Irish-lovin' friends who might be reading this, you probably haven't received your package yet, so sorry for ruining the surprise and that it's almost St. Patrick's Day and you don't have it yet. You all probably already know I do things last minute. :)

I got some bronz-ish picture frames on sale at Wal-Mart for $3 each for the 5x7s and $4 for the 8x10s. I probably could have found some cheaper at a thrift store, but I wanted to get these done before St. Pat's and didn't have time for thrifting on the day I was shopping.

I tried spray painting them white, but it wouldn't cover the frames. I'm thinking it was either just too cold outside for the paint to stick or they needed to be primed first... which I didn't do.

So then I just got some acrylic paint and put a couple coats on each frame. Then I used painted on a coat of gloss mod podge to make them shine a little. I made some flowers with fabric I already had and hot glued them on. Done! 

Printables I used:
And here's several more I saw just the other day and love: 
Stay tuned this week for a tutorial on this Scrappy-No-Sew Flower. :)
