It’s time to dress up your Frame-ups! There are many, many options: stickles, glossy accents, rhinestones, chipboard letters, glimmer spray and so much more.
You are going to have so much fun - we sure did! We came up with mini-albums, teacher gifts, door tags, flowers, party hats and more.
Wendy Smedley: It’s hard to believe that My Mind's Eye is 10 years old. I had the privilege of being at the first trade show with one of the owners, and can I just tell you that is was such a small industry then-- in fact hardly anyone even knew what scrapbooking was. The idea of a paper frame was so simple yet applicable. Of course MME has grown and innovated in many other ways since those early days.
I made two projects using the frame-ups products, the first hanging door tags, second a candy bouquet for my son's teacher. Both super easy, and both super cute.
4" x 6" frame + die cuts + photo + jumbo paper clip
- Select a container and cover it with MME paper
- Added title
- Adhere the frame ups to lollipop sticks, tie with fabric or ribbon scraps
- Insert foam into container
- Insert pencils
- Insert frame-ups
- Lastly, add the candy where ever you see a hole
- Tie fabric or ribbon around your container and you are done!
Amber Packer: I knew the Frame-ups would be perfect for a simple, quick, cute and inexpensive baby mobile. With the variety of Frame-ups we re-released you could even switch the mobile up with the seasons. There is no printing on the back so you can leave the back blank (like I did) or mount the pieces on cardstock. I used Stickles and Glossy Accents to dress up my Frame-ups!
I used papers from Quite Contrary along with Frame-Ups to create a party hat and necklace fit for a birthday princess. By using punches this little project was quick and easy! I accented my hat with pieces from the Me and My Sister pack. I punched the flowers from the small frame with a circle punch and added them to my flowers with pop dots to make the fun centers. I also curved the petals of the flowers and bent the butterfly wings to give the project more dimension. The hat didn't feel finished to me so i added the fringe border and "top spout".
