Tutorial #3

Altered Canvas Frame

Create this lovely Frame for your loved ones this February!

Supplies needed:

Large altered frame 6x8 or larger - Mine is from Be.

1 patterned paper
Several ric racs/ribbons
Paper flowers of various sizes
Matching Alpha chipboards
Paper embellishments
Craft Knife
Paper cutter

Step 1
a) Clean the frame before altering it, making sure the surface is clear of dusts.
b) Cut the patterned paper to the size of the frame.

I put the patterned paper on top of the frame, and using a craft knife, I cut out a rectangle for the placement of the photo.

Step 2
Glue the patterned paper to the frame. Ink it and modpodge it, if you like
(you dont have to modpodge it).

Step 3
Slide a photo in place and embellish around it.



These are our takes on the tutorial
