Here are the supplies I used:
- one sheet of Basic Grey paper
- one sheet of card stock
- tacky glue
- one roll of ribbon ($1 bin)
- one wood frame ($1 at Michael's)
- Flower leaf stamp
- 1 Prima flower
- 1 button
- letter stickers
- Staple gun
To complete the projet, all you have to do is lay the frame face down on the paper, trace and cut a paper replica of the flat top of your frame. I use my finger to spread a thin coat of the tacky glue on the frame. Then simply glue the the paper replica onto the frame.
The inside I just decorated like I would any card. You can put your child's name inside, a sentiment, a simple flower, butterfly... really whatever strikes your fancy! To replicate mine: I stamped a flower stem and leaf on a smaller piece of card stock and added a paper flower and button center. Last touch was to add a dashed white line around the frame. I then pop dotted this smaller piece onto a larger piece of the same color card stock and inserted into the frame like I would a photo.
The ribbon I stapled onto the back with a staple gun. Because the ribbon was a very thin organza, I did put a piece of corrugated cardboard over the ribbon to keep the ribbon from shredding from the staples.
I didn't need to make a hanger and there was the plastic store hanger still securely fastened to the back. I just hid it in the ribbons. Overall, the project took me about 30 minutes start to finish.
And there you have it! Not only do i not have to dig in Katelyn's drawer to find matching hair accessories, she has a pretty piece of "artwork" on her wall too.
