Altered Photo Frame

I love ‘dressing’ up items to make them fun, fresh and new.  Altering the face of a bare wooden picture frame is easy to do and inexpensive.

With this particular frame I Modgepodged some Designer Series paper to the top and bottom half of the front. Placing the frame face down I gently used an exacto knife to trim off the excess paper.  Next I painted the edges and back of the frame with a Light Antique White Acrylic Paint.

Once my frame was dry I applied sticky strip around the front of the frame where the two pieces of designer paper meet.  I added a strip of ribbon and to give it more dimension, tied a piece of ribbon in a bow and adhered it to the strip of ribbon using glue dots.

The flowers were created by punching out a total of 9 large scallop circles.  I layered 3 together, punched a hole in the centre and attached them together using a brad. Then I scrunched them up layer by layer to give them a full look.  These were attached to the front of the frame using glue dots.

Scallop circle punches are a great way to create 3-dimensional flowers.  To order yours visit my On-Line store or contact me via e-mail.
