Today’s project can be seen in the current March/April 2012 issue of Paper Crafts magazine for the Cameos & Silhouettes Brides & Babies feature. I think this would be a fun frame to hang from a chair at a wedding or shower, and you could make one for the groom, too! It’s an easy and inexpensive DIY wedding project. The beautiful frame was only about $10 at Michaels and came with the satin ribbon attached. The silhouette girl is an embossed image of a Studio Calico stamp on kraft cardstock and “BRIDE” is spelled out with American Crafts Thickers. My favorite part of making this project was playing with buttons and rhinestones. I used different shades and sizes of neutral buttons and flatback Swarovski crystals and pearls. Strong glue dots keep them in place on the outside of the glass. (The glue dots really do hold up well… I made this project, shipped it to Utah… it survived the photo shoot and handling by the magazine and was shipped back to me without a bead missing!)
The silhouette trend is one I have yet to grow tired of… I love the elegance of these timeless images. You can see some more of my favorite silhouette portrait-inspired products in my post here.
The latest Paper Crafts is, as always, full of so much paper crafting inspiration! I’m delighted to have a few projects inside the magazine. You won’t want to miss it! If you don’t already have your copy, you can buy one here.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!
