With your 3 frames – carefully remove glass and discard (you will not need these). Measure and cut your scrapbook paper to fit in frame  adhere paper with glue to the matt.  Set aside.  Lightly brush on brown ink to age your frame.  you can also add brown ink along edges of your scrapbook paper and wood letters as shown below.

for my project I opted to do two frames green and one red.  There is no right or wrong – if you want mix all the buttons together.

Insert back matt into frame and secure back.  With your letters and foam adhesive – I wanted to give my letters dimension.  Add foam adhesive and center onto frame.
