"Stitch in Time" Homework Framed Chart
Tailor your homework chart to your current set of school subjects.
The Stitched in Time paper pad used in this project highlights the classic elements of hand stitching, the textures of thread, and the beauty of projects that are hand made. Use this stack to create items accenting back to school projects, adventures with your family, or time spent with friends on a warm summer afternoon.

Select three coordinating prints and remove them from your stack, along with the alphabet page.
From the alphabet page, cut out the letters needed to spell "HOMEWORK".
With the remaining prints, select one that will be used in the center of the frame and along the left side. Cut the side piece first, covering the side from the top of the frame to the bottom of the photo opening. Take the remaining paper from that piece and cut a piece to cover the inside section of the photo opening. (Tip -- use the piece that normally holds in the photo as your template to cut the correct size).
Cut two strips from the second print for the next two edges of the frame (top and bottom). One will need to begin at the right edge of the first strip (directly above the left side of the photo opening) and go to the right edge (top) of the frame. The other will need to begin at the left edge (bottom) of the frame and stop at the bottom corner of the photo opening. Adhere these both in place.
Cut one strip from your final print to cover the right edge of your frame, beginning at the bottom left of the frame and going up to meet the edge of the top print. Adhere this directly to the frame.
Adhere the "HOMEWORK" letters to the top of the frame, using the adhesive foam squares on every other letter to create dimension.
Print out desired subjects on an additional piece of coordinating cardstock. Cut these out to cover the top of each clothespin. Adhere these directly to the corresponding clothespins. Use your permanent adhesive to adhere the clothespins directly to the photo opening of the frame.
Finish off the board by creating "Done" or "To Do" signs to hang from each clothespin.
