Windows to Photo displays

Here is a 6 pane window I made to display pictures. I used letters cut with my Cricut and scrapbook paper for the matte.
This window hangs, of course, over our bar. I cut out letters backwards on sticker paper using my Cricut. I stuck the letters on the back of the window panes and sponged on white ceiling paint removing the letters before the paint dries completely. The effect appears to be etched. I did staple black fabric to the back of the window just so the letters showed up better.
I made this one for a baby shower. The pictures will be replaced by the real baby when she arrives.
The frame would be great for a baby boys room. I used tabs for the picture holders. Coordinating paper pulls the look together.

I never turn down free windows. With that said, I get calls constantly asking if I have seen that there are a stack of windows here and there. I have recently had a family donate over 24 windows to me so that is my latest passion. Here are some examples of the windows I make and sell. I take blocks of foam core that I bought at the $1 shop and decorate those with scrapbook paper and add the self stick corner tabs using a template I made. The blocks of finished foam core are then placed in the back of each pane and taped to the frame. That way the customer can take each block out and easily add their own pictures.  I have many other windows but can't get them to load here even though I resized them. They can be seen on my facebook page: VT's Wood & Wire
