Here’s an easy project picture frame project that can be personalized with your favorite kit. All you will need is:
- A blank picture frame
- A digital kit
- Miscellaneous embellishments if you would like to add some.
For my project I used Mari’s Luvbug kit and an unfinished wooden frame found at my local craft store.
To begin, I measured the sides of the frame to see how much paper I would need to cover them. I then digitally cut and pasted strips of paper from the kit onto a page to be printed. I also selected the digital elements that I wanted to use, copied and pasted onto another page to print.
Once printed, I cut out the strips of paper. I cut the top and bottom strips diagonal on the sides to make the edges meet. I then used Xyron adhesive to adhere the strips to the sides of the frame and used sandpaper to remove the excess paper from the sides. I also added a little chalk ink to the edges for a distressed look.
Next I cut out the elements that I had printed from the kit and glued them to the frame. In addition to the digital elements, I decided to add a bit of ribbon, chipboard and a button as shown.
All done! But wait… I’m giving this project away! Just leave a comment to this post for your chance to win it.
