VIsion Printable
I do this a lot with my printables. Just this week I shared a vision map printable that I framed inside a dollar plastic frame. I’m using this in my office as decor and a friendly reminder to push me toward my daily goals.

5. Craft a dresser tray. Place a colorful piece of scrap paper inside the frame and lay it flat. It is now a dresser tray perfect for holding jewelry, coins, etc. If you wish, you can spray paint the frame first for an extra pop of color.

6. Make your business card picture perfect. A small picture frame is great for framing your business card. Display your card at trade shows, in your office, or just for yourself.
