This week, I want to share some of my framing projects with you. Today's project started as a plain, square frame. I love making projects for home decor and frames are especially fun!
The fabric flowers are made with our Fun Flowers die. I used 2 of each size of the cut flowers and layered them. I pierced a hole with our piercing tool and then inserted a brad to hold them together. Sometimes, I sew a button to the center instead of using a brad. To fluff them and give them shape, I used a product called Stiffen Quick. I got them quite wet and then pushed them into a mini muffin pan, so they would hold a more rounded shape as they dried. I usually speed up the process a bit by using my heat tool on them. I like to give them plenty of time to dry and then fluff them a bit before attaching. I used my hot glue gun to attach them to the frame.
I could see a frame like this in a baby's room, a little girl's room, a teen's room, a craft room...
Tell me what you think... and be sure to come back tomorrow and I'll show you a vintage frame I made, using our flower trim.
Don't forget about the Friday 3-4-5 Card Buffet class this Friday night and the Collage Frames class coming up on Feb. 21. I hope you'll join us for 1 or both of these fun classes. Have a great day!
