This month we will be sharing projects we created using Bo Bunny "Sweet Life" papers and embellishments and sharing with you how we incorporated Bella Blvd "Clear Cuts" into our project. You can find these supplies and lots more in the Little Blue House Online Store
At the bottom of this post I'll share links to the other Team Members Blogs, where they will be sharing there projects and inspiration. The Little Blue House will be offering a Clearly Creative Grand Prize. To be entered for a chance to win all you have to do is visit each blog and leave a comment.
I'll be sharing how to re-purpose a thrift store frame to make a new piece of decor.
I picked up this gold frame at the goodwill for 99 cents. It was gold, but I wanted it to be prominently white, but with a little gold showing through. I painted the entire frame with white acrylic paint (two coats, letting it dry in between each coat). Once it was completely dry, and took a small piece of sand paper and lightly sanded the high spots on the frame, revealing the gold underneath.
Once that was done I cut my piece of Clear plastic ( with white strips) to fit just inside the lip of the back of the frame that originally held the glass. I added just a bit of hot glue all the way around the lip of the back of the frame before setting the plastic piece in.
Now, time to make the center piece. I cut a banner piece just long enough to fit inside my frame.
You can see below how I layered and added the other pieces and stitched around the edge of the square yellow piece. I stitched with gold thread, which really coordinated well with the gold that was showing thru on the frame.
All that is left to do at this point is to add the Tim Holtz Clipboard Clip to hold the mail piece in place and and your chipboard saying to the bottom of the frame. The Butterfly and the saying are both from the coordinating Chipboard pieces for the Bo Bunny "Sweet Life" Collection. You can see them HERE
If you chose to put this in a stand, it's fun because you will see light thru where the clear plastic is. If you hang it on the wall, you will see the color of the wall behind.
The girls have all kinds of great projects and fun inspiration on their blogs, so I hope you will pop over and check them out.
You are certain to leave inspired!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
