The second set I decided to make a frame for the new baby girl's picture with a card to match. The frame is 8x10 but with the mat - it will fit a 4x6 photo. The perfect size for a newborn picture from the hospital or a really cute snapshot that grandma took. I love the flower on the frame and the smaller one on the card. It was super easy and I got the idea from a website that used to sell some scrapbooking supplies but has shut down their sales. The website is one heart one mind and when I last looked they had shut their sales down but not the website so you can still see their ideas. Anyway - the flowers were soo soo easy to make. You just punch or cut out circles and ink the edges. Then fold them and overlap them on each other till you have the size of the flower you want and put something in the middle. I used a brad on the frame and a button on the card. They both turned out so cute - Look!
Here is a close-up of the flower on the card so you can see how easy it is.
My sister who does a blog called Craft Affection says that she has seen this flower used on fabric for a cute hairbow too. I just might have to try that.
So I am done posting another craft and next time I hope to do something different. I found some very cute fabric at JoAnn's on sale and I really need a new quilt for our master bedroom so I am going to try a new pattern for a quilt and hopefully it will turn out. Here is a picture of the fabric --
If you have any interesting but beginner quilt patterns let me know. I just might use them. Next post I hope to have a giveaway too! So stay tuned.
