Picture Frame Scrap Embellishments

Hello my crafty friends!

I have some embellishments to show you today. These picture frames came from a 12 x 12 Maggie Holmes: Gather pad.

I cut down the sheets to 6 x 6 then proceeded to cut the pattern out. These small picture frames can be easily replicated. They measure approximately 1 6/8″ x 2 5/8″ for the outer frame and 1 3/8″ x  1 6/8″ for the inner opening.

I layered elements that originated as scrap to decorate each one.

 

 

As far as supplies, I used the Maggie Holmes paper and lots of random scraps from my stash. I also embellished my frames with rhinestone stickers, buttons, pearl dots, enamel dots, doilies, twine, vellum and a shimmer pen. My tools include scissors, glue, glue dots, a stapler, paper trimmer, x-acto knife, hole punches, cutting mat, and crop-a-dile.

These were so much fun to make and I have already use a couple in handmade greeting cards. I plan to use some in a scrapbook layout as well.

Until next time! XoXo

I was also determined NOT to leave scraps so I used as much left over paper as I had and created 3 more cards! They are also masculine and can be for any occasion.

A video is available on the creation of these cards and can be viewed here.

This is all for today!

Wishing all those amazing dads out there a wonderful Father’s Day!

Until next time XoXo
