Hi! Thanks for stopping by May Arts for some holiday inspiration. Today I have in store for you a winter photo frame that would be great for a child or even the young at heart. Just follow the directions below and this gift will go together in a flash with the help of our beautiful ribbons and Lawn Fawn supplies.

frame how to

  1. Cut two strips of NV01 slightly longer than the length/width of your frame. Cut down the center of the ribbon, leaving you with four strips.
  2. Cut the ends of the strips on a 45-degree angle.
  3. Use Sookwang tape to adhere the ribbon to the edge of the frame, meeting the 45’s at the corners.
  4. Adhere pattern paper over the front of the frame how desired.
  5. Flip frame over. Using a craft knife cut the photo hole open. Put glass back in place.

  1. Stamp snowmen image directly onto frame. (You may want to do this step prior to adhering paper but I forgot). Glue Metallic String detail to bottom of frame to create a snowy ground.
  2. On a separate piece of white cardstock stamp the snowmen bodies and color. Add diagonal stripe ribbon as scarves. Use Helmar Zap Dots to pop dot snowmen in place.
  3. Create a phrase banner and pop dot to upper left corner of frame.
  4. Insert a snowy day photo and your gift is complete!

Don’t have a frame on hand to make over?  Follow the same set of instructions to create a card.
