Finding the Right Backing for Quote Posters

 We picked up several new posters from United Arts in Education. Each one is a classic quote from a famous person in quirky fonts and decorations. The problem is that classroom posters are not the same size as regular posters and I wanted to frame them.

I already had two poster frames in the normal 17x23 size and the new posters would fit nicely inside, I just needed to fill the surrounding gap. My solution was to float the poster behind the glass and cover the backing board.

For the greenish poster, I used some Christmas wrapping paper with diamond shapes. On the blue/orange poster, I crinkled up brown packaging paper. I think both turned out great and will fit well with my new classroom decorating scheme.
