Hello! Are you looking for an easy project which you can create with your kids? If yes, you've come to the right place today. Today's project is a super simple handmade paper frame which features Maja Design new "Vintage Baby" collection, Petaloo and Clear Scraps.
This project just need two pieces of pattern papers (6" x 6"). For the front, just cut out a window which is perfect to display your photograph. (mine is slightly smaller than 4" x 6". Then, trace the outline of your photograph against the front. You will now be able to draw two horizontal lines (for stitching purposes) on the top and bottom of the outline. (This way, you will be able to secure the position of the photograph in the frame.
Lastly, just adhere another piece of pattern paper for the back of the frame. Make sure it is only on the edges except the place to insert your photograph. Then, you can continue to stitch the line that you've drawn earlier. If you have a difficulty to get the kids to stitch, you can opt to use glue instead. But this step needs to be done while you glue the two pieces together.
And that's it. Now, off to the fun part, decorating it! I've used some beautiful flowers and lace by Petaloo, acrylic frame and mascil by Clear Scraps to decorate it. Here are some close-ups.
You can use various embellishment to decorate your frame. For the kids, you can give them stickers, jewels, flowers, buttons, sequins, beans, glitter, washi tapes, ribbons, beads, anything you can think of. Let the imaginations go wild and have fun!
