If you liked it then ya should a put a ribbon on it.

I shared with you how to use fabric to create a custom mat here. Today, I wanted to show you another simple way to create a customized mat, this time with ribbon, that is as cute as the custom art it surrounds!

Robert's cousin, Melissa, recently had a baby and I ordered this sweet 8"x10" print from mosieposie.

I bought a frame that came with an 8"x10" white mat. 

I could have just popped it in and called it done. But, I knew I wanted to add a little punch.

I found a cute striped ribbon at Wal-Mart that had the same blues and greens in the print. 

I cut 2 pieces 10" long and hot glued them across the top and bottom. I used the edge of the mat as my guide.

Then I cut 2 pieces 12" long and glued them down in the middle leaving the edges loose. 

I folded in the corner to create a miter, making sure the corners met up, and pressed it with my finger. Using hot glue, I glued it down.  

I put the glass back on top.  

Much cuter, don't you think?

Drop it like it's Christmas!!!

My little bits of Christmas cheer

I wanted to share a few of my decorations. I will probably do several posts that share a few different areas since I am realizing I have lots of decor up this year.  

 

This is my vintage mistletoe that I love so much. Vintage decorations are just my very favorite. These are hand sewn little felt lovelies that are bedazzled with sequins and bells. I found it in antique store for $10 many many years ago.

Only a bit of the actual {plastic} mistletoe part is still in tact.
