Patriotic Americana Frame Tutorial

Hey there Paper Peeps! I'm here today to share a great tutorial on how I created this Vintage Americana Frame:

I started with a purchased frame.  I really like that the sections were deep so I could add goodies. I went ahead and added patterned paper to the background and inked the edges.

Then add a few strips of patterned paper to two of the sections.

Next add two paper rosettes and a tiny wooden spool with flag images and a dimensional star pick.

Now top off the rosettes with patriotic images and buttons with string.

Center cute little black and white image and add inked glittery photo corners.

Additional images for the bottom right corner.

Another dimensional star pick and black and white image.

Last but not least.....add a big poofy bow of Center Stitch Burlap and a USA banner with Cherry Baker's Twine.

This is a great little frame to hang or set on a shelf to add to your seasonal decor. I've already got mine displayed lol...but then again I am really into Americana : ) Wishing you all a happy and productive day with lots of time to be creative : ) Huggs from Ginny.
