Handmade Decorative Frame Gifts

If you're looking for a beautiful handmade gift idea, why not use your favorite paper crafting and scrapbooking products? These papers, die cuts, stamps, and embellishments can make any project shine. For these Handmade Decorative Frames, I purchased some inexpensive frames from Michael's. You can find these in their "dollar spot" aisle where items are just a few dollars. Colors and styles of frames change for each season so stock up on the styles and colors you most prefer.



These beautiful frames can be altered to fit any style and design preferences. Read through the instructions for each frame below and then determine how to best alter these projects to fit your needs.


"5" Frame:

- Mount vintage dictionary print paper in the frame.
- Cut a strip from blue polka dot patterned paper and cut points in both ends. Mount across the frame.
- Head emboss emerald green on a chipboard "5". Let cool and then mount on the paper strip.
- Thread white crochet twine through a blue button and tie into a bow. Mount on the "5."


Butterfly Frame:

- Fill the frame with vintage dictionary paper.
- Cut two strips of patterned paper one larger than the other in green polka dot and yellow patterned paper and mount down the center of the frame.
- Die cut a butterfly from blue cardstock.
- Use blue stamping ink to stamp a pattern on the butterfly. Mount the butterfly in the center of the frame.
- Mount a sunshine sticker in the center of the butterfly.
- Thread twine through a peach button and tie into a bow. Mount the button in the center of the sticker.


Bird Frame:

- Fill the back of the frame with vintage dictionary paper.
- Hot glue kraft-colored present filler paper to the bottom of the frame.
- Die cut a leaf from green cardstock and mount in the upper, right corner of the frame.
- Die cut a bird from yellow patterned paper. Add a small yellow, epoxy dot to the die cut for the eye.
- Use a raindrop punch to punch a shape from blue cardstock. Ink and stamp the shape with blue stamping ink. Mount the raindrop shop on the bird to form the win.
- Thread white crochet twine through a green button and tie into a bow. Mount the button on the bird's wing.


Depending on the recipient of this gift, you can create "scenes" or themes for a child, for a teen, for a man or a woman. Look through your paper crafting stash to see what papers, tools, and embellishments you have on hand that help inspire you.
