3-D Box Frame

Look away Louise- this is Grace's present and you haven't got it yet!!

So warning to Louise over with, let's proceed. I'm running a class next Saturday (16th April) the cost is £15 and everyone attending will get to make their own 3-D box frame, in their own choice of colours and theme. I made this one for my downline Louise's new baby girl Grace. I know her nursery is decorated in the Zeddy and Parsnip stuff from Mamas and Papas so I tried my best to create a frame to match:

The frame isn't from Stampin' Up! but it's lovely and chunky and can be left natural or painted. The back of the box frame is about an inch away from the glass so there's lots of room for layering up! I took another photo of the picture out of the frame so you can see it better:

I've used so many different things to create this picture! My colours are So Saffron, Crumb Cake, Soft Suede and Very vanilla. I've used so many things from the new mini catalogue including buttons, bevelled window panes, Little Additions stamp set, embossing folders, punches and embosslits dies. Here's a close up:

Now we don't have a small zebra in our catalogue or a rabbit that looks like Parsnip so I masked off bits of a little dog and cat from Every Little Bit and then drew in other bits to make them! Here you can see my attempt at Zeddy!

I love the beveled window pain with the paper pieced bib in it. You get so many in a packet and I'm going to enjoy using them.

If you'd like to come along to this class, please get in touch asap with your colour choices. The class is at 10.30 on Saturday 16th April. Cost is £15 which includes your frame to hold your 6"x6" creation. I'll be joining in and making a brght pink and white picture for my kitchen!

Here's an example of one I've made previously:
