Hello all.... I was so excited to get my hands on the new Vintage Floral Bundle.
My first project with this bunlde is going to be another MDF frame project using the same frame, instead of using all 3 togther to make more of a screen display, I decided to create 3 seperate projects.
Today's project is a nice simple one for the man in your life, who means the world... whether it be husband, partner, father, son etc.
So here we start with our plain frame
▪️Now I chose my 12x12 paper, and this time it is the double sided sheet called Misty.
News print on one side and navy blue effect on the reverse (I won't be using the wood side in this project).
▪️Measure and cut a piece big enough for your frame.
▪️Using a strong glue like Mod Podge, paint one side of your frame and then lay it on one edge of the paper. Make sure your paper is right way up.
▪️I used a craft knife and removed the square on the inside of the frame.
▪️Next I used a disposable nail file (sandpaper is good too) and carefully went around the edges so that the paper starts to fall off and you have a neat edging.
✅ TIP - Crease the edges where possible to help weaken the fibres before filing.
Now the frame is done, I needed to cover the back inside board.
▪️For this I used Craftmania's Navy Ribbed Card. I personally love ribbed card, as it always feels so luxurious to me.
▪️I used the Modge Podge again; laying the board on top against an edge and then cut around with my craft knife.
▪️Before attaching the back board, I used a blending sponge to apply my Gathered Twigs Distress Oxide Ink around the inside and outside edges to add a vintage look.
Now using red liner tape around the inside edge on the back of the frame and then attached the back board.
I wanted something to hang my project on the wall so these metal embellishments are perfect for this.
▪️Use your Glue Gun or silicone glue to add this to the back of your frame.
I added mine to the back of the back panel, but can be used at the top of the frame - also with the small loop over hanging.
What man doesn't love a smart shirt.....
▪️Here I've used Creative Expressions Hawaiian Shirt Die and a pale grey card.
I cut an extra collar, shoulder panels and front panel to add dimension.
The buttons were from a previous die set, but buttons can be added using a Cosmic Shimmer 3D Glue.
▪️I used some thick foam pads when adding it to the frame.
I cut some sunglasses and the mobile phone can be made easily, see photo as I used a die from a previous set.
Have you seen Jamie Rodgers' NEW Alphabet & Numbers Die Set in his Luxurious Christmas Collection?
I used this Set to cut out my letters for "Dad My Hero."
I used Silver Mirri Card - I always associate silver with 'Male' makes for some reason.
I used Woodware's Ultra Fine Tip Glue Applicator Bottle to stick these to my frame.
At the top of the frame, I used a die from my stash but I'm sure you all have something you could use.
I did have some music notes too - anything would work.
The gold rivets are a little fiddly however they are worth the patience... give it a go!!
Use a hole punch to cut 4 circles.
Place these on a foam pad and using a Pokey Tool, push it through the centre.
I then used tweezers to glue onto my frame.
So that's my frame complete..... a super easy and quick project, so I hope you've enjoyed my step by step guide.
