DIY Wednesday- Floating Clouds

Today's project is my Floating Clouds Frame.
Here is what  I used: 
Dollar Tree Frame
Clear Fishing Line
Scrapbook Paper
Mod Podge
Duct Tape

I folded my scrapbook paper in half
Made a little cloud stencil out of cardstock, and then traced the clouds onto the crease of the paper.  I made sure to have the edge of the cloud touch the edge of the crease
 I cut out my cloudies, and mod podged the inside of one side of the clouds
Forgive me, but this part became a bit meticulous, trying to get my clouds on the line just right, so I sort of forgot that I was supposed to be taking pictures.
I next sandwiched the fishing line between the two sides of the cloud pieces, and spaced them out as I wanted.
After my clouds were on the line, I took my frame (sans glass and backing) and used Duct tape to secure the line to the back of the frame.
I know, the duct tape sounds crazy, but it really was the best way.
And here it is!
