Paper Flowers and Butterflies Photoframe

Decorated Photoframe
Jazzing up a plain photo frame is so much fun.You can use whatever takes your fancy and its often such a "quick to complete" project too.
Paper Flowers
The red photoframe was a gift from Jovita[blogger friend] and I jazzed it up with  some handmade paper flowers .
Paper Flowers
The flowers were made using the same technique as in my Paper Flowers Boquet post.Used acrylic paint to shade the paper flowers .
Paper Flowers
The stem is just rolled paper --- It is so amazing what all we can make with paper! Sorry I didnt take photos while making them as I didnt know they would turn out good!I hand cut the leaves and made a flower pot from a square of shiny paper.
Butterflies
The butterfly is  a glittery foam butterfly and the plastic butterflies are actually meant to be used in stitching.
Rhinestone Rose
The rose is a rhinestone sticker .
