I knew what I was going to do until starting putting paper away today and then I found a frame kit I bought from Oriental Trading a few years back that needed to get done so I totally change what I had planned but I like what I came up in the end.
Here is what came in the frame kit.
2. Cut the corners like the picture so they wrap around without tearing. I forgot to do that on the inside and had a little rip. I'll show you in a minute.
3. Use Mod Podge to glue the paper to the frame and then use a bray to roll out the paper so you get rid of any air bubbles. You can see that I used the bray on the lower part of the frame but hadn't use it on the top yet in this photo.
4. Here is the frame with all the paper glued on. You can see the small tear in the lower left corner. I turned this frame around and that became the top right corner so I could cover it with my embellishments.
I decided to use Distress Ink on the paper to give it a more rustic look.
Ta Da...The final project with embellishments.
I used green jute from My Life in Arts N Crafts to use in the buttons and the bow.
