Chicken Frame

Love to display pictures?  This frame is perfect, especially if you like to swap out current pictures in your decor!

I used the cricut to cut some banners and the the scallop punch to punch some pages out of an old book.  Then I stamped our name on with the Chocolate stamp set.  To make the frame even more versatile, I attached the banner with velcro pieces so I can swap out the decorations whenever I want.  The flowers at the bottom are also attached with velcro.  To make the flowers I punched out a bunch or circles with a 1" circle punch and the scallop punch and then folded them to make flowers and added a jewel in the center.

Supplies Used:
Chocolate Stamp Set
Chicken wire frame
close pins
circle punch
scallop punch
kraft cardstock
hemp bakers twine

I had to make 25 tags.  I didn't have a lot of time.  So what do you do?  You mass produce!  And with washi tape it is a breeze!  You are going to love this.

1.  Lay your tags out in a line and roll the washi tape over them.

2. Fold the tags as you go if you have a large amount to do.

3. Repeat as needed with additional washi tape and shimmer trim.  If you run out of one just cut it at the end of a tag and start with your new washi tape on the next tag, keeping them all in place.

4. Cut in between the tags

5. Add stamped image


Supplies Used:
Sparkle and Shine washi tape
red shimmer trim
Santa's Greetings stamp

All of these items are inexpensive too!  The stamp is only $2.95!  This is an easy and affordable way to dress up gifts.  Have fun!
