Christmas Gift Idea No. 4

Scallop Circle Roses Picture Frame
I think this picture frame is so pretty and with a picture of a loved one, it will be a very cherished Christmas gift.
I bought the picture frames at the Dollar Tree (can you tell I'm a frequent buyer) for only $1.  The photo frame holds a 3.5 x 3.5 picture, and it can be hung by the ribbon that is attached or it can be stood on an easel.  

Here are the instructions on how to make the paper roses:

1 1/4" Circle Punch (#119861, $15.95)

I used scraps of Pretty In Pink card stock and punched a hole with the 1 1/4" circle punch.

1 3/4" Scallop Circle Punch (#119854, $16.95)
Then with the 1 3/4" Scallop Circle align it over the circle and punch it out.

Sponge the edges with Cajun Craze (#119671, $5.95) classic ink pad.

With scissors cut between the scallops at an angle.

Curl the edges of the scallop circle back using your fingers.

 Now roll up with a Quilling tool or a bamboo stick.

Small Circle Punch (#119869, $5.95)

Let the rose relax to desired shape and punch a 1/2 " circle for the base.

Glue the outside tag to keep rose together, then glue the rose to base and let dry. I used Tombow liquid glue. When dry, cut the base circle close to the rose.
Little Leaves (#114511, $5.50)
With a scrap of Garden Green card stock and the Little Leaves Sizzix  Sizzlits die, cut out 2 sets of the leaves on the Big Shot.

Once all your roses are ready you can start gluing them to the picture frame.  I used Tombow Liquid glue.

Beautiful Wings (#118138, $11.95)

On this frame I used the Beautiful Wings embosslits to decorate it.  Which one do you like best?

Again, if you already own the punches and dies, this project only cost $1 to make.  I used card stock scraps for all the cut outs.  If you need any of the other tools, please take advantage of Free Shipping and order them through me from Stampin' Up.  See you tomorrow, friends.
