Sneak Peak - Photo Display

I've got a work in progress going on around here.  The first piece to my plan is complete.  I no longer want my fridge covered in pictures and announcements, so I made this to hold those things on.  It is one of many things that will be going on the wall next to the fridge.  I primed, painted, and distressed the frame.  I took the glass out, used spray adhesive (that I already had on hand) to glue a piece of felt to that glass, used the same adhesive to apply the material (that I purchased in the scraps section of Wal-Mart).  Hot glued the ribbon, and put it in the frame...
The frame originally was the one with the butterfly in it that you see in the bottom edge of the below picture.  I bought it at the DI (local thrift store) for one dollar.  Funny thing is, this same butterfly decor and frame hung in my home as a child.  Makes me wonder if it's the same piece...
I can't wait to finish - and show you - the rest of the wall!!
I entered this in the $5 challenge over at...
