Day #2 of May Arts / Graphic 45 Blog Week!
A Fabulous Frame & Charming Cards
I am loving this swap with Graphic 45! Their products are gorgeous, and May Arts ribbon is a perfect compliment!
I’ve made a quick frame using their Once Upon a Springtime line- easy to make it look great with little work, since there is such detail in the paper! Here’s what we’ll end up with:
Starting with a frame from Michaels or Joanns- I stained it & let it dry overnight.
Get out the mod podge & pour it on!
I use a foam brush to get a smooth layer.
Attach your paper, smooth out any air bubbles & let it dry (with a paper that has a clear top/bottom, make sure you’ve got the dowel hole in the right spot!) Next grab your exacto knife & trim the excess.
You’ll end up with this:
Now grab a sanding block or paper & smooth the edges!
Here’s the hardest part – which gorgeous May Arts ribbon will you embellish it with?
I cut a few pieces of the ruffle, a piece of crochet & border punched some of the Graphic 45 & layered them with hot glue.
I tied a pretty bow & hot glued it on. I added die cut & punched butterflies as well.
And here’s the final product again!
I also made some quick cards:
And one last card – this one couldn’t have been easier – the focal image is a die cut image! More patterned paper, same crochet & ½” wrinkled ribbon!
Thank you so much to Graphic 45 for the great swap!!! I’m in love with this paper! And thank you for stopping by – hope you’ve been inspired!
