Chanel Holmes says her Grandma Ida passed away about 13 years ago. She had given Chanel a lot of her costume jewelry. It isn't worth much but it was special to her. Chanel kept the jewelry in a bag for years, but always wondered what to do with it.
So, she decided to create her own jewelry display.
She bought an inexpensive frame that came with the precut Mat. She then used scrapbooking paper she thought would go with the jewelry style. It was an antique looking pad of scrapbook paper that she bought for $5.
She then put paper behind each frame in the mat board. She laid the jewelry out on the paper. Once she got the layout she liked, she put a foam tape on the back of the jewelry to secure it. Chanel used tape instead of hot glue so the jewelry wouldn't get ruined.
