About a year or so ago I came across this fantastic Boys Collection called “So Rad” by Simple Stories. I know I have written about it before but it has been a while. What I loved most about this collection was the positive messages in the cut apart sheets (4×4, 3×4) many of which seemed frameable. I thought it would be a fun project to get one of the inexpensive frames at the craft store, customize it with the collection papers then put in the sentiment, but I can’t seem to find the frames at said craft store. Thus, this project has been on the back burner for a while, until now.
As you know I have been using my Silhouette a lot lately and of course, my favorite designer has not let me down. Lori Whitlock has come out with different size shadow boxes complete with holes to string ribbon through for wall hanging. I thought I would give this a try on her 4×4 frame and some old Bo Bunny paper from my stash.
This frame could not be easier to cut and put together, the issue is figuring out the inside cuts versus the outside cut that make up the frame and interior walls. Lori does have a video that gives some helpful tips on assembly. For example, I would not have thought to adhere all the inside sides in a line then attach the ends to make the frame. I like these frames and will be making more of them, maybe next time I will try it with the ribbon so I hang it. This one will be going on a hallway shelf.
If you wondering why I choose this saying, please keep in mind I have 3 sons (one of which is a teenager and another about to become one) a husband and an Australian Shepherd who loves to play hide and seek with socks. Long story short, given I am usually subconsciously keeping track of everyone, if I can’t find it, it is lost! I am sure I might have a reader or two who can relate to my situation. 🙂
Anyways, I am off on sock hunting adventure!
Until next time…..
