Easy Photo Frame Gift Idea!
If you still looking for personalized gifts for people on your gift list, but your budget getting low, I have an easy photo frame gift idea to share that you can adapt, using what you have on hand in your own scrappbook supplies! All you may need to purchase is a wood frame, but you can also adapt any frame you have laying around. It is up to your own imagination!
If you want to copy this one, here are the supplies you will need:
FEPAD035-First Edition Isabelle 12×12 Paper Pads
S2-009-Spellbinders Fantastic Flourish Two
F-012-Spellbinders Precious Metals Craft Foil
3177-Want2Scrap Chipboard Sentiments Moments (See HERE for all Chipboard Sentiments)
TIM32823- Tim Holtz Distressed Ink Gathered Twigs (See HERE for more Distressed Inks)
Clear liquid glue (I used Tombo)
Die Cutting machine
1.Sand rough areas of the frame until smooth, wipe clean. Paint around edges and back of frame.
2.Trace and cut paper to fit front of frame (trace on the back of the paper so your frame will sit on the paper exactly as it will be once done).
3. Mod Podge front of frame and place paper on top while wet. Make sure the paper is smooth with no bubbles, but don’t wipe hard on the paper as it could stretch when wet. Let dry. Put one coat on top to seal. Let dry.
4. Stain chipboard sentiment with Distress Ink.
5. Cut flourishes out of foil. I find it easier to remove the foil from the die by using wax paper between the two, but I use scotch tape to hold the die in place as the wax paper causes it to slide while cutting if not fixed in place.
6. Adhere flourishes and sentiment to frame with clear liquid adhesive.
You now have a beautiful frame!
Change the paper and embellishments for a variety of personalized photo frames! These are easy, but make very special gifts for those on your gift list!
Thanks and Happy Scrappin’!
