"Wood" You Be My Baby

Posted on Jun 10, 2015 12:37:03 PM

Hi! Karen here! When I saw this wood grain paper with wonderfully weathered frames scattered on it, I knew it would make the perfect background to share my nephew's first month.

I selected black and white photos and only used one color photo to draw the focus. Three of the frames were completely cut out and reassembled with foam tape for a more dramatic 3D effect.

Instead of filling all the frames with photos, two of them hold an embellishment.

1. Use the Paper House 12x12 
Wood Grain paper as the background. Cut out the centers of all the frames with a craft knife.   Carefully align photos in three of the openings and adhere the photos to the back of the layout.

2. Assemble two non-photo frame inserts to emphasize your theme. Completely cut out the last three frames. Next, attach the layout to a sheet of scratch paper to add stability to the layout. 

3. Fill the remaining loose frames with photos or embellishments. Embellish each frame with ribbon and reattach it with foam tape. Wrap ribbon around one frame. Tie a simple knot and attach a charm around another frame, and for the last frame, add a decorative bow.

4. Finally, embellish the main photo with a cluster of mini flags.
