I have hot glued every imaginable item to frames for various events! A few examples: pacifiers and bottles (had ultrasound photo adhered inside bottle) for baby shower, small ornaments for Christmas party, silk hibiscus flowers and drink parasols for luau parties...you are only limited by your imagination!

Budget Week~Party Frames
If I ever get stranded on a desert island the main supply I would need is my hot glue gun (of course my magical island would have an electrical outlet)! I am a warrior with my glue gun and have many burned blistered fingers over the years to prove it! I love using frames in my party decor. I use them for so many things not just displaying photos. You can display your menu, place cards, list your items on your buffet, thank you notes, etc... Come to think of it~I even use one in my bathroom for guests...I will let you in on that one in a later post. So here is my Dollar Tree frame. Here is a sample of the frames that I am working on for my Sweet 16 party (which is next Saturday- YIKES). In this case, I am using them for pictures of the birthday young man and putting them on the candy and popcorn stations that Maddycakes is doing. A few weeks ago my FABULOUS photographer Amy Fraughton did a photo shoot of him at a carnival (the party is Cirque du Alejandro). The photos turned out amazing. I will have the pictures throughout the venue in various ways. I spray painted the frames gold and hot glued the masks on that I got when I was in New Orleans for The Special Event Convention. Remember when I was a speaker at TSE!! Okay, I had to through that in one last time!
