Simple Felt Fabric



Big Shot Sizzix Machine
Sizzix Wavy Frame Die
Kunin Felt
rope from a gift bag handles that I had in my stash.

First I cut four orange rectangles that my frames would fit on.


 Then, I cut my blue and green felt so that it was a little bigger than my die and added Phoomph to the back, only removing one side of the paper.  I ran it through the Big Shot with the die using the cutting pads. (To do it again, I would not cover the full back of the frame, so that when it is placed on the background, the photos could be changed out)


Then I had my frame cut outs.

I removed the paper from the Phoomph that was on my orange piece of felt, added my rope to make a hanger and then placed a second piece of orange felt onto the Phoomph.

I took a photo of my boys and cut them to a size that would fit within my frame leaving a little of the Phoomph exposed, removed the paper from the back of my frames, stuck the photo on and then applied it to my orange background.

Then I had these cute little frames to hang on the boys bedroom doors!  They could also be made with Christmas colors and be used as Christmas ornaments!  Or a gift for a grandparent!


Hope you like my simple felt frames!

Until next time…..




Buttons Galore & More Creations Pendant Kit


Buttons Galore & More has these really convenient Do it yourself jewelry making kits that are simple and fun!  This particular kit makes up to ten pendants for necklaces.  Everything is included except for the adhesive!  And the kit comes in a clear reusable box.


We are gearing up to go to Disney in the fall and I used that as my inspiration for the pendants that I created!

Final with me

The adhesive that I used was Beacon’s Dazzle-Tac Jewelry Glue.

First, I came us with the pendants that I wanted to create.


Using the adhesive, I attached the silver bail to the back of the buttons.   For this pendant, I added two buttons to the front of the big button to make it look like Mickey Mouse!!!


Check out the pendants that I came up with!   Two Mickey Mouse inspired pendants and two simple pendants!   Then I added them to the black cords that were included!


Until next time……..
