Hi there everyone! For this series of Craft with Crate, I want to show you a simple, creative way to use my favorite Story Teller item, the Wood Frame Collection. Because normally, the wood frames would be considered a decorative addition to a layout or card, I thought it'd be nice to use them as "actual" picture frames instead. Making them is super easy too - come check it out!
Pretty Party Collection - Mini Patterned Paper Pad
Misc - White Acrylic Paint, 6" x 6" Piece of Plywood, Photo & Twine
The basis of the project is this 6" x 6" sheet of plywood. Paint all four edges with white acrylic paint for a nice, clean finish. Two coats might be necessary for full coverage.
After the paint is dry, adhere a 6" x 6" sheet of patterned paper (your choice - I opted for white since the frames are colorful all on their own) onto the upper surface of the board. Make sure the paper is without air bubbles and fully adhered to the board (Check the edges - they sometimes pop up).
Back each of the collection's three frames with patterned paper - For variety purposes, I chose to use three different patterned papers, one per frame.
Carefully consider where to sit each frame on the 6" x 6" board. Smallest to biggest in a triangular formation is easiest because it's recognizably balanced. Adhere them to the board with hot glue using a low temperature glue gun (or high).
Use the wood painted clips to attach photos and journaling to the frame'(s). By using the clips, you can change the photos and journaling out at any time.
Go ahead and frame your memories and photos so that everyone may enjoy them! Have a lovely day & thank-you so much for stopping bye! Happy Crafting!
