Off the Page: Washington DC Frame

Posted on Aug 31, 2015 10:03:34 AM

Hello and welcome! Susie here today to share one last off the page project! I love to use my paper crafting supplies to create home decor items, and thanks to Paper House, this photo frame is one of the easiest I have ever made!

Living in Washington DC, we take advantage of the opportunity to see the cherry blossoms that bloom every spring. I have some wonderful pictures of my children, and I hate to hide them all away in scrapbooks. For this project, I started by centering a 4x6 picture on 5x7 green cardstock and slipping it into an acrylic frame. On top of the acrylic, I outlined the picture with self-adhesive light pink pearls.

I created a tag by diecutting an area from the Paper House Cherry Blossoms paper that looks like marble, inking through the die to add a bit more detail and texture.

Using a little dimensional tape, I added the Washington DC cardstock sticker...

...and finished it off with some coordinating pink pearl Nestabling before adhering it to the frame with dimensional adhesive.

The Washington DC 2 Cardstock Stickers have tons of great mini-images of DC landmarks! I added the US Supreme Court on the right side and Abraham Lincoln on the left, tucking a tiny cherry tree sticker just behind him.

I used the star-studded border sticker to create a frame outside the pearls on the lower half. The sticker sheet also has a tiny sprig of cherry blossoms, which I placed on top of the pearls in the bottom right corner. Perfect!

Paper House has such a huge variety of stickers! I can see using this idea to create display frames for all sorts of travel destinations… and beach vacations… and sporting events… the possibilities are endless!
