I work at JoAnn Fabric & Crafts. Recently we were told that we could start making display items using products we sell in our stores. I have already made a couple of cards and also a reusable coffee mug that I put some vinyl on for decoration. This time I decided to make an altered frame. Here it is:
I used a wooden frame and The Lemon Flower Stack by DCWV for the paper. I cut a piece to fit the frame, then rounded the corners and cut out the middle. I then cut some strips of cardstock to cover the sides. I used my Cricut and the Flower Shoppe cartridge for the flower. I cut two of one style of flower, one at 3 1/2" and the other at 3." I then cut three of a second style of flower, one at 3," one at 2 1/2" and the last at 2." I curled the edges and adhered all the flowers together. I then added a gem sticker by Martha Stewart in the middle and adhered it to the frame. I used Flower Shoppe for the leaves as well. The largest one is cut at 3," the middle one at 2 1/2" and the smallest one is 2." I used some pop-dots on the two smaller leaves to give them some dimension. I added the black paper in them middle of the frame just for photo purposes. I have a little sign that I will put in the frame saying what product was used and my name for when it goes in the store. Enjoy!
I made this for the "anything but a card" challenge at Tuesday Alchemy.
