Easy and cute - I've made a bunch of these for my upcoming craft fair. What do you think? These had been done at SU Convention and they didn't look to difficult to make, so I gave it a try. I've taken the square frames from On Board Something Seasonal and taken a dauber with Classic inks (Pacific Point, Old Olive, Pixie Pink) and colored both sides of the frame. Then cut 2 square pieces approx 1 3/4x 1 3/4 of cardstock or DSP to cover over the opening of the frame. Then on the backside adhered a 12" ribbon with a glue dot in the middle of the frame and then adhered the 2nd piece of cardstock/DSP to the back of the frame. Decorated the center of the frames with other stamped images. Used the small filigree brad in the center of some images and adhered images to the middle of the 'frame' with dimesionals. Added the large filigree brad to the bottom of some of the ribbons and knotted the ribbon to hold it in place. Unfortunately the 5/8 Grosgrain ribbon is too thick to feed through the filigree brad, but a frayed bottom or dove tailed cut finishes it off too. Any questions, feel free to contact me.

For now, go kreate

Great way to use some of the wide ribbon. Other than gifts, I always struggle on tying it (or using it). Thanks for the charming examples. Hugs,

My favorite is the apple one. I'm a red fan...

I think these will be great sellers for you! And what a great gift idea for the readers in our lives.
