Heart 2 Heart - Anything but a Card!

I'm squeaking in under the wire with this week's Heart 2 Heart challenge. It has been a busy week since getting back from vacation and convention, so I decided to share what I made for my convention roommates. I wanted something they could use to remember the trip. These cute frames were plain to start with and were just crying out for some of the darling Cherry-O papers.

I tinted some of our white Ceramcoat paint with chocolate reinker to paint the edges. When the paint dried, I distressed it further with ink directly applied to the edges. Using Mod Podge, I applied the paper (after flipping the frame over and tracing the outline on the back of the paper). After it dried a little, I distressed the edges of the paper with ink and applied another coat of Mod Podge to seal the paper.  After tying ribbon around a few places and adding the "Convention 2010" flower embellishment, I was done! The center of the flower is a Designer Brad put through the holes of a button. A little cherry stamped in the corner of the gift bag tied it all together.


  1. CUTE, CUTE, CUTE!!! I've been neglecting my picture frames I've had stashed for FOREVER...I guess I need to break them out and try this! tHanks for playing along, Lori!

  2. I wish I was one of your roomies! Maybe next year!
