  1. lucky you, I went to Michaels they don't have those these cheap. And I got some paper from there though(blue prints and some lime) to use instead of fabric. So ready but only problem is the frame. Styrofoam is not expensive but one of the reason I wanted to use it just to cover some of my orange wall and create white and blue contrast, with styro I can not do that and frame is expensive. I wonder if anyone has used hardboard and how that would look if I use on what hardboard and keeping 2 inches gaps around the pic. My pic is 12 by 12, I need 14 by 14, i wonder if they have that size.
