I just hot glued some ribbon around the frame.  If you actually have the frames from the Dollar Tree, the ribbon fits perfectly into the grooves on the frame.  I loved them before, but now I love them even more!

Those are absolutely ADORABLE!!!!
The addition of the ribbon makes them look they could have come from an expensive boutique. They would make wonderful gifts for friends and neighbors.
I'm so sorry that I didn't come by earlier to see them, but I'm so happy that I could come by now and see how you transformed them into something spectacular. Great Job!

Hey girl! I still haven't pimped out my dollar store frames yet...but I plan to!
Ok, you asked about the clip on the clipboard getting in the way. Well, if you look real close you can see that it's just kinda rigged. I also think using multiple pieces of coordinating paper hides the mistakes somewhat, a little camoflauge if you will. Anyway, I work my way up with the paper until I get to the underneath bottom of the clip thingy (I know, I give horrible directions...sorry). When I get to that point I cut a strip of paper tall enough and wide enough to fit the rest of the uncovered space. Then I just kinda trace and cut it to fit around the clip part. So not exact. So very imperfect. Maybe I should post directions of how to make things when I put them on my blog...I am a dork.

Good luck. Let me know if you try one or if you have any more questions!
