Preparing the Frame
Getting the Pictures
Finding Many Ties
I slowly covered the whole frame and even wrapped them around the edges, using duplicates for the sides. As you can see in the picture to the right and using pieces of pictures I had cut apart for filling, this gave the whole project a bit of a scrapbook feel. My grandmother is the little girl in these photos, as you can see I had more than one pose with the stool and it was her in the swimsuit with the swim cap on. She took adorable pictures and I loved using them, they reminded me of my own children.
What’s a Letter?
I choose a letter to frame instead of another picture. My frame came with that natural wood insert that went between the frame and the glass. It definitely finishes the frame off nicely. The letter was simple you can either draw or you can print the letter you like. I used cardstock for the letter because it holds up to the painter pens I used with the nice silver sheen. I use the Elmer’s version because they work the best and can be used on just about anything. You can find them in your craft section by the paints.
Simply I just took a piece of white printer paper and using the frame as a guide I drew out the square I needed with a pencil. Then I cut it out and using double sided tape to put the letter on the blank paper. When finished, I put everything back together.
