Felt Frame

I love up scaling old items that I find and frames are always on the top of my list. I love that with a few supplies you can change the whole look of a frame!

Here I am up scaling an old baby blue frame by covering it with two different colors of felt. The Amplify Scissors are perfect choice to cut thick felt easily and neatly.

I adhered the felt onto the frame using rubber cement, but any strong adhesive should work. Once the adhesive had dried, I cut a notch in the center and carefully folded the center inside and adhered that in place.

To decorate the frame, I made some bright flowers. I used two fabrics here: plain old cotton and some old t-shirt fabric. The fabrics cut and fray differently, which makes the flower look fuller. I then added color to the fabrics using some ink daubers (you could use paint instead) and cut our rough circles using the Amplify® scissors.

To make the leaves, I cut out leaf shapes from cork sheets and then added metal tips to them. I finished them off with some glitter ribbon centers.
