Fancy Frame

I am re-doing my den in black and off white and decided to dress up an old frame. This project was so quick and easy. You will need a frame with matting, scrapbook paper, scissors, paper cutter, adhesive, decorative buckle, rhinestones, and ribbon. Start by removing the glass and taking apart the matting

I choses 2 black and creme printed papers that did not match, but coordinated

Trace the matting on the back of both scrapbook papers.

Carefully cut your paper frames out

Cut the two frames in half but not right in the center. Cut at the left of the bottom and the right of the top of only one frame.

Layer the cut piece over the full piece and secure with adhesive.

I used Monoadhesive to secure frames all around and to the cardboard matting itself.

Add a sparkly buckle or other embellishment the one side of the frame

Glue rhinestones ov3er the seams where you cut the paper frames. These are Swarovski crystals in "Comet"

Put the franme together minus the glass and you have your finished project.

I added other crystal frames around the focal frame for some sparkle.
