DIY fabric, lace, burlap & ribbon flowers to makeover a photoframe using Stampin Up supplies

Once upon a time I had a photo frame. It was glossy & black with some diamante stones. It was the trend about 5 years ago when our house was decorated in a minimalistic style. It somehow doesnt fit our home decor now which has evolved into more muted, classic shades with touches of chintz and ornateness. I did take a before shot of the frame but cannot find it now - modern technology eh!

This is the colour scheme for our bedroom..

Here's my finished frame ...

Using baked brown sugar in colour paper stack I cut strips to fit round the frame and then sponged the edges in coordinating Baked Brown sugar ink to give a more aged look. Where the paper strips meet will be the focal point for my embellishments.

Using some scraps of the new Burlap trim, natural trim & artisan embellishments vintage lace I made some flowers by handrolling them over some hot glue on a silicone sheet, knotting the end to start with then tucking the ends underneath. Basic pearls hide the centre of the flowers. 

These flowers use Burlap trim again with natural cotton ribbon & baked brown sugar ruffle ribbon.

More burlap trim & cotton trim ribbon.

And lastly two elegant butterflies punch with the stamp of the same name :)

And here's our youngest little princess, sweetly framed.
