Mom passed away 9 years ago this October.  I wanted to create a project based on all my mother taught me. I've been cleaning out my house and found a photo of myself as a wise and energetic two-year-old. Craft Attitude makes this ridiculously easy to fill the frame with all that she taught me!  I simply typed out my text on the computer and printed it out on the Wood Attitude film as I was going to adhere it to the wood section of the frame.  As I was going to print in boldface, I was expecting some smearing.  There was none!  The film somehow magically  absorbs the ink!

For this project You will need:

A package of Wood Attitude
a 5x7 frame (mine is from Target)
glue stick, which comes conveniently with the film
X-Acto knife
bone folder (optional)

Let's create (with attitude)!

For a 5x7 frame, I printed out the text vertically/ portrait style. I added glue to the wood section of the frame.  Have fun with the type.  I wanted mine to be fairly simple, so just two fonts with one boldfaced. It all depends on your computer skills.  

I pulled away the film from its backing which is super easy to do.  I centered the film over the frame and pushed it down, smoothing out all air bubbles. HINT! To get into tight corners I used a bone folder.

Once the film was smoothed into place, I trimmed the excess with an xacto knitfe.
