Handmade Box Frame

Happy Bank Holiday.
Hope you are all having a lovely day.  Its a bit windy and wet here today so a perfect day to do a bit of blogging.
I am sharing today a little gift I made for the Fiskarettes Design Team.  I wanted to do something other than a card and I found this great tutorial on Pinterest showing you how to make your own frames.

I made this one from brown card stock of quite a heavy weight to make it more sturdy.
I used some beautiful papers from Prima and the matching stamp set for the clock face which is called Printery.

I then used the Butterfly and In Bloom squeeze punches from Fiskars
To make the flower I punched out several flowers and shaped the petals using a cocktail stick and I inked up the edges.  I also added a few seed beads to the centre.

I hope you can stop by the Fiskarettes UK Facebook page for more lovely inspiration from the Design Team.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

  1. Hi Dawn, this is a really lovely project. I love the way you've mixed all the elements into the frame, and the wording is beautiful
