Step-by-Step: How to frame

lets get right into it,
right what you will need for this little project is a frame,remove the glass & the back from the frame.this particular frame had a broken glass.

lay frame onto front side & remove back & glass 

with a hook screw you should be able to screw some holes,I've drilled them the same size as a ordinary ring binder folder

once you have made the holes screw 2x hook screws into the holes till tight & using a pear of pliers close the gaps of the screw hooks as close as you can

 turn your frame around front facing down,you will need a staple gun & some strong string  & staple the string to the frame as per picture

 turn your frame around back facing down this time a have a fantastic place for some photo's messages etc .

it should be looking like this when  finished

make sure you double staple to secure string

I have used two large clips & one loo people figure to hold the  photos in place

add some  chipboard words


                                                  & stickers
 & Tadaaaaa all done,all these animal are able to be removed for different look

here it is in the folder, I have also add a small tag.A very easy project for those broken frames that need a new lease of life.

This is the opposite side of our envelope of our last layout we did, for this particular layout I used a DCWV 8x8 paper stack,some alpha stickers wooden stars of coordinating  colours.firstly I prepared all of my elements.I cut two of each designer paper into 1 inch strips , cut a triangle out of each end creating a double ended flag .I have added some splashes or blotches on my layout page using the ranger distress stain this can also be achieved with a dauber & acrylic paint, using a honey comb stencil I sprayed with dylusions spray creating a honey comb affect to our main layout hence d creating our based layout.

 Here are the elements for our layout ready to start the first stage of our layout

firstly lay your double sided flag strips until your happy with the look, to achieve this particular look I laid three different strips under each other then laying the two other strips on the two top strips & the bottom two gluing them all down,I'm ready for the next stage

using double sided tape create a pocket from your desired photo like  so....
