My husband completed his first 5K race over the weekend. Doesn’t he look great (on the right, in the blue)! My nephew Matthew is running beside him in the white T-shirt.
We want to display his race number and his medal in our sports memorabilia family room.
Inspired by this post we came up with a way to accomplish our task without spending any money (the best way to do it!).
I found two identical frames in storage. I used tape, double-sided tape, and a single piece of construction paper. The frames came with the mat and of course we used his medal and number.
I covered the mat with the number for the first frame folding it over the corners much like how I wrap a gift. I used the clear tape to hold it in place.
For the second frame I took the bottom layer mat and taped blue construction paper to the backside. I used double-sided tape to adhere the medal to the paper.
Then I popped the mat into the frame resulting in a nicely framed memory.
