Everywhere we look at the moment there are flowers blooming.
Daisies and buttercups are everywhere. And pretty soon the wildflower displays will be brightening up the whole of Swansea.
So it’s only fitting that this month’s craft theme for us Bostik Bloggers is ‘Flowers’.
After taking a look at the crafty goodies we were sent, Nerys and I decided to make a fun and simple flower photo frame.
Here’s what we used:
- A5 piece of green foam
- Paper flowers, in different colours and sizes
The first thing I did was cut a rectangular hole in the middle of the foam, just a bit smaller than the photo we wanted to frame.
Then we got to work gluing the flowers down. We stuck all the green ones down first because I wanted them to add some texture and depth to the frame, but to not be the main focus.
Once we’d used all the green flowers we started adding all the bright and colourful ones.
I went for the approach of filling in gaps with these flowers, whereas Nerys chose to stick hers in the middle of some of the green ones. I love how we both put our own stamp on this little craft!
Once all the glue had dried we stuck our photo to the back and we were done!
I really love how this turned out, and how simple it was to make.
We had some pre-cut flowers in our craft kit, but you can easily make them yourself by using a flower punch and whatever coloured or patterned paper you have at home.
When it came to putting the photo ‘in’ our frame, we just stuck it to the back with some tape. But you could use photo corners if you’d rather.
Then you can stick it up at home with blu tack, or stick some little magnets on the back and pop it on your fridge!
I was sent a box of craft materials to create this post, but all words, opinions and creations are my own.
