Ann Butler Designs and Deflecto Craft Blog Hop!

Good Saturday Morning and WELCOME to the Ann Butler Designs and Deflecto Blog Hop!


Deflecto sent each of the Design Team Stars a sample of the craft frames that they feature on their website, so we could dress them up with lots of Ann Butler Designs goodness!

You probably arrived here from the fabulous Paula DeReamer's blog, but if you stumbled across my blog, please go to Ann Butler Designs blog to start!

Now on to my project - 

BACKGROUND BASICS PINWHEEL PICTURE FRAME!


Here is what you will need:

Here is how I made it:
1.)  I received two Deflecto craft frames - 12' x 12" and 8" x 10", but decided to use the smaller because I had the perfect photo for this frame!

2.)  Stamp each of the four Colorbox® Background Basics Stamps by Ann Butler – Checks, Diamond, Basket and Picnic with the Ann Butler Crafter’s® Ink by Clearsnap – Limelight, Aquamarine, Sunshine, Lilac and Berry on the coordinating cardstock.  I love how Ann's brightly colored inks pop off the pastel cardstock colors! Trim each square neatly with scissors.

3.) Attach two contrasting squares together with Tombow Xtreme Adhesive. Draw lines from corner to corner, then measure 1" on either side of the center line.

4.)  Cut on each of the four solid lines, stopping at the 1" mark.

5.)  Attach a Tombow Xtreme Adhesive Tab to the center of the square. 

6.)  Fold in every other triangle point and secure to the adhesive to create a pinwheel.

7.)  Select a contrasting button and tie a bow with embroidery floss.  Attach button to pinwheel with Tombow Xtreme Adhesive Tab

8.)  Trim photo to fit frame.  Stamp Background Basics Picnic stamp on a 1" strip of green cardstock with Limelight Ink, then stamp sentiment with Night Ink.  Color a small heart with Tombow Dual Brush Pen.

9.)  Attach four pinwheels to top of frame with Tombow Xtreme Adhesive Tabs.
