HALLOWE'EN IN WONDERLAND (graphic 45) - A PICTURE FRAME


Can't believe I was lucky enough to get my hands on some of this paper!  Woo hoo!  I used an inexpensive 7 x 7 frame from Ikea.  The outside front is covered in the striped pattern.  I adhered it with glue stick.  With an Expresso paint dauber I covered the sides (in and out) and distressed the pattern a bit.  I then used a sepia toned decoupage medium to cover all sides.  This helps keep the paper down and puts a bit of a protective finish on the works.

The black velvet ribbon is a vintage piece I've been saving, the flower is a couple of paper flowers layered, glittered on the outer petals, gunmetal stickles around the center - all held together with a glittery brad.  I used a StarBucks coffee wrap to make the photo corner, which I swiped with some blue ink and then glittered.  The tag is from the Hallowe'en in Wonderland line, I backed it with more cardstock for strength and then outlined it with Gunmetal Stickles.  The curly fibers I had.  The little Bingo card is from the back of a package from Jenni Bowlin.  Lovvvvvve those bingo cards!

When I gift this, I will include a 4 x 4 mat (which I have cut out of the double sided striped paper so two choices) and instructions to crop a picture down to 3.5 x 3.5 for Maximum Good Looks!
