I made a set of Cinderella themed mixed media frames for a friend as a very late Christmas gift Tongue The frames are the miniature ones in the $1 bins at Michael's. The tallest frame is 4" high. I added glitter and flowers to the outside of the frame. I used various Children's books and scrapbook paper along with printed tape and lace to make each scene.

Right now they are just free standing, but I am considering popping off the stands and fastening them to a ribbon to be hung in a straight column.



"Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo":



"At Midnight": (text is hard to read in low light :/)



"Perfect Fit" and "wash the windows, sweep the halls, scrub the terrace":




Even though my friend is obsessed with the Disney version of Cinderella, I prefer alternative versions/illustrations. Unfortunately, I didn't find any Cinderella books with small enough pictures, so I wound up using various story and poem collections and just found suitable pictures to fit the Cinderella story. I did use a Disney/Little Golden Books to get the text on the last one. My friend also loves pink. And hot pink. Hence all the pink Tongue

Very cute! They'd look great hanging on a ribbon. You did a nice job of sprucing up those inexpensive frames.

These are beautiful! I love how the purple frame reminds me of her coach!
