Altered Frame

This is one of my favorite pictures of my daughters. Caitlen (orange jacket) and Adelene (purple jacket). I remember they both just learn to crawl at that moment. I made this altered frame using Fancy Pants Designs product. Here's the instruction if you wonder how:

  1. Cover the frame with brown patterned paper (Delight: Garden), fold (in order to see the green side) and zig zag stitch on the right side.
  2. Measure and cut patterned paper (Delight: Thoughtful) slightly bigger than inner frame. Stitch randomly on the left side.
  3. Hand cut petal flower, add buttons.
  4. Cut strip patterned paper (Delight: Strips) just to get quote “To live happily is an inward power of the soul) punch scalloped border, ink, attach to the frame as shown.
  5. Add plastic and felt flowers to the frame as shown.
  6. Decorate with brad and buttons.
  7. Cut overlay and tug into the frame.
