Funky Square Frame

Another Funky Fairy Frame!

I made this one using paper from the "In with the Old" kit. You can find it on the Funky Fairy site. Go shop after you finish reading my post and leaving me a compliment ... ahem ... I mean comment.

I started with a naked wood frame and sprayed it all over with walnut ink. I don't worry about getting it perfect, the stain spreads and mellows as it dries. I rubbed it down with a paper towel to get any big drips and allowed it to dry.

I ran my piece of paper through my Xyron to get it all sticky, then used a craft knife to trim the edges out. Then I used an emory board to smooth out the edges (inside and out) to soften the look a little. Then I used coordinating prima flowers and some little buttons I had in my stash. I thought the ribbon with the swirls and the blue flowers accented well. I ran the ribbons through the little X xyron (it's such an easy way to stick ribbon down!) and tied the knots on.

The longest part of this is waiting for the walnut ink to dry, a wonderful quick project that will make a great gift, or hopefully sell for a few $$ at a craft show.

Just Gorgeous!! I tried downloading some of the free paper, but it didn't work. It's either my computer "wouldn't let me" 'cause I don't have the right software or I'm just too computer illiterate to figure it out :0) One of the reasons I haven't ventured into the world of digi stamps.
