Keeping your new year’s resolutions close at hand might be the key to making them happen this year. So how about framing them? literally? and adding a little sparkle?
Purchase a basic frame with an included white mat. First remove the glass, then put the white mat back inside the frame. Before putting the back on the frame, add in a piece of glittered cardstock (use it like a picture). Then reattach the back to the frame.
Next, punch a variety of circles (varied sizes) from patterned papers and complimentary cardstock using Fiskars punches.
Arrange the circles in a design on top of the glittered cardstock.
Before affixing the circles, place and align a title within the frame.
Then affix the circles to the glittered cardstock. Elevate the three-inch circles with foam adhesive pieces to add dimension to the project.
Once the circles are affixed, add numbers on top and secure with adhesive.
Then write and print your resolutions on cardstock and cut into strips with a SureCut Craft Paper Trimmer.
Attach the strips of cardstock on top of the circles, adjacent to the numbers.
Display your resolution collage as a sparkling reminder throughout the year.
