Hi Everyone !!!!
I would like to share with you how I make a Picture Frame , it's very easy , just follow the steps.

*8x8 Unfinished frame from Michaels
*Acrilicy Craft Paint (any color)
*Scrapbook Paper
*Mod Podge (matte)
*Foam Bruch ( to paint and mod )
*Sandpaper ( or nail file)
*Distress Ink ( or any ink pad )
*Ribbon (optional)
*Embellishments (optional)
*Wall Scraper (or credit card)



1. Coat of Acrilyc Craft Paint on the Sides and Back.
I'm going to use "Blue Jean" Paint.

2- Now 2 layer of Mod Podge .
Let dry the 1st. layer for a couple minutes and then add the 2nd. layer
(don't forget to wash your brush right away)

3-Turn the frame and press down over the paper.

4-Run the scraper over the paper to keep out any bubbles that
you can find.

5-Trimming the paper from around the frame and inside.

7-Sand the edges of the frame (around & inside)

8- Ink the edges (around & inside) and let  the Ink dry  for a bit.

9- Now cover the front an inside with Mod , let it dry for 10 minutes
 and then add the 2nd. layer.

10- Two - 12" strips of ribbon and Embellishment

11- Add the ribbon over the frame and the butterfly

12. Attach the ribbon with staple gun , I used "arrow fastener -JT-12M"
from home depot.

123- This is what you'll end up with.

I hope you like it and let me know if you did one frame,
I would like to see it.
Happy Crafting!!!!
