I have quite a few craft shows coming up this fall, so I am always on the lookout for fun (and inexpensive) items to alter. On Saturday, I had a few baby-free hours, so I headed off to Hobby Lobby and the dollar stores. Unfortunately, Bella has been cutting some teeth and I haven't had much time to play yet. Here is my first craft fair project: a photo wreath that features the On Board Trimmings and Dashing Designer Series Paper. The greatest part is I got the wreath for only $3.50! Now I just wish I would have picked up a few more!
Each ornament has 2 layers with dimensionals in between so that a photo can easily be inserted. I adhered the paper with a glue stick, then sanded the edges with the sanding sticks seen in my previous post. On the smaller frames I applied Real Red and Old Olive craft ink, then embossed with crystal clear embossing powder. I used the crop-a-dile to punch holes in the top corners, then threaded the 5/8" grosgrain ribbon through the holes and knotted the ends.
This project did not take long to complete and hopefully will be a big hit at the craft fairs. If anyone has any ideas on pricing, I'm open to suggestions.
