Good morning, Brenda here and welcome to another fun filled craft
project with the Robin's Nest.
The one thing I love the best of being a designer at the Robin's Nest is I get to try products I don't know I'd buy or maybe know of. This month Robin's Nest has teamed up with Epiphany. I had never heard of this company until I teamed up with Robin's Nest. Yes, I know, where have I been? In my box of goodies I received this punch and some framed metal charms. Can we say "awesome". Now I do allot of jewelry pieces and that's what came to mind at first but then I went into a total different direction after playing a bit.
Then I gathered my papers and the mini dew drops for the project. I love this crackled paper. It has so much dimension and I just love dimension.
Using my cricut I cut out my letters from chipboard and the papers.
I actually cut the letters 2 times from the chipboard and Mod Podged them together to give them more stability and a thicker bond.
Then I covered the chipboard with the papers.
Next I printed out a picture of my two granddaughters and used the punch and the bubble caps to create the frames.
Close it up and punch. Works like a "charm", hahaha.
Then I glued the bubble caps with the girls' picture into the metal frame using my E6000 and now they are forever embedded into those lovely frames
Now I needed some kind of a base to put this all together. Remember, I am a firm believer in recycling. I have purchased many stamps from Stampin' Up, but never use the wooden blocks they come with. I like using my acrylic boards, so I have lots of these wooden blocks in my stash. Perfect base...
I painted the wooden block and the backside of my chipboard letters black with some acrylic paint and glued the pieces together. I also attached the tops of the letters together with some star brads and added a mini dew drop on the stars and around some of the letters.
Then I hot glued some clothes pins to the back of the "frame" to create my "photo holder"
and here is my "OMA" photo holder.
I absolutely loved making this.
Thank you so much for coming over today and
checking out another "useful" project. You can always find me here if you'd like to see what else I create.
I hope you go over to the Robin's Nest online store and check out all the awesome papers and embellishments she has and also
head on over to Epiphany and get yourself some of
these punches and frames and create something.
