Keep the memories of a family vacation alive by creating this playful photo frame. For the base of our frame, we picked up a small art canvas at our local craft store and decorated it with our favorite photographs. This Mommy & Me project will have you reminiscing in no time.
Step One: Cut your background paper to fit the canvas. Use Terrifically Tacky Tape to adhere the paper to the canvas. Cut the 4mm spooled braided natural leather by the foot to fit the outside of the frame. Attach them to the frame using Terrifically Tacky Tape.
Step Two: Cut your photographs to fit into your frame and attach them with Terrifically Tacky Tape. Create the frames around the edges of your photographs by threading 8/0 hex cut seed beads in metallic rainbow midnight blue onto string. Place the Terrifically Tacky Tape around the outside of the photographs and then place the seed beads on the tape. Remove the string. Repeat for each photograph.
Step Three: Use Gem-Tac permanent adhesive to glue the following items to the frame in a pattern of your choosing: antique copper-plated cowboy boot charm, sterling silver lasso rope charm, antique brass horseshoe charm, antique copper-plated western saddle charm, antique copper-plated star outline charm, antique copper-plated horseshoe charm, antique brass star outline charm, Swarovski 2028 XILION ss16 rose flatbacks in crystal, Swarovski 2028 ss12 XILION rose flatbacks in crystal, and Swarovski 2028 ss16 XILION rose flatbacks in white opal blue sky. Use a Jewel setter to help with the gluing of the crystals. For help applying flatbacks visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center.
