These frames make great gift ideas. They don't take a lot of time to make, so you've got time to make one or two for any last minute gifting.
I started by painting my wooden frame with Antique White acyrylic paint and a sponge brush. When it dried, I traced the frame on the backside of the dp, cut it out and adhered the paper with Mod Podge. When it was dry, I sanded the edges with a sanding block and sealed the paper with a thin layer of Mod Podge. When it was dry, I tied some coordinating grosgrain ribbon to hide the seams and went to work on the chipboard piece.
I traced the chipboard piece onto dp, cut it out and adhered the paper to the chipboard with Mod Podge. When it was dry, I filed the edges, applied the Memories rub-on, sealed it with a layer of Mod Podge and attached it to the frame with Dimensionals.
Eventually this will hold a photograph, but I can't stand an empty frame. I just stamped one of the leafy branches from Stem Silhouettes with Always Artichoke ink and a Barely Banana sunshine from the Little Shapes set on Whisper White cs.
The person who bought it from me really liked it, and I hope you do, too.
