Picture size insert
1. Find a frame that looks trophy like. The one pictured above is perfect. It is free standing, glass and has a silver frame inside the glass. I found it at a dollar store. One year I splurged and paid $10 as I couldn't find a frame I was satisfied with at a $ store. I have found this same frame for the last few years.
2. Make an insert for the frame. Put on the insert the title of the award and the year. Embellish as desired. If you know how to, make the file a JPEG format, transfer it to a jump drive and print it out at a photo developer. I have sent my pictures online before but I have not been happy with some of the results. The insert can be printed at home on picture paper or card stock.
3. Put insert in place. Polish if necessary.
For less than $2, I made a fabulous keeper trophy. If only I made the annual award that cost us $250+. Maybe next time.
