|Handmade Photo frame|
Photo frames have held such a special attraction for me even before I started crafting and making my own ! Recently I picked up a Photo frame kit for my daughter from my local craft shop[Itsy Bitsy]. My kiddo had fun sticking the parts of the frame together and sticking the beads on the photo frame.
The kit yielded a simple beaded frame and of course we had to add our own special touches!
The shiny look is courtesy a generous coating of modpodge over the beads and this helped to really stick the beads which had a nasty tendency to keep falling off!
Also a bit of silver glitter glue here and there gave it a bit of sparkle and glamour!
The hearts border was made using my new Martha Stewart hearts punch [this MS punch is super new but giving me problems as its giving ragged edges which I have to snip off with scissors - a big disappointment and am heart broken !- any suggestions friends?]
Our photo frame has a hearts theme so added a heart charm on another handmade pin using the trusty glue gun.
I hope you liked this glitzy photo frame..do share your views.

On a happier note ,I made my first ribbon rose !![So happy as fabric crafts and me dont get along usually!] Also made my first fancy pin by recycling beads from a broken bracelet .

Have seen so many lovely pins in blog land and it was thrilling for me to finally make my own for our photo frame
