Flower Frame

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.


  1. Very pretty!
    I don't know is I could work at a JoAnn's or not ~ I'd probably end up spending more $$$ than I earned!!!
