Tip Thursday 9/17 - Framing

Welcome to a Tip on Thursday. I'm Melissa, nickname "Sunshine HoneyBee", an independent Close To My Heart CTMH Consultant, and I want to share some tips I have learned in a weekly tutorial named Tip on Thursday.

Please check out my CTMH site and order wonderful items like what I used, comment below & share a photo of what you made using the Tip.

For this Tip on Thursday I want to share with you how to incorporate framing in your creation.

Supplies & Tools you will need are:

1. Die to use for framing - I used Stitched Hexagons
  (I call them Honeycombs) 






2. Cardstock - 5 1/2" x 4 1/4"  Base  I chose white
                        2 other pieces for layers
                          5 1/4" x 4" topmost & middle
                           (I chose from Buzz & Bumble)
                        white 5 1/4" x 4" for sturdiness of topmost

3. foam adhesive

4. optional washi tape - I prefer to use so to keep die in place
   when  die cutting

5. optional: Distress Ink & dauber  - I used Tim Holtz walnut stain

6. Die cutting machine - mine is a Sizzix BIGkick
7. Die cutting plates qty 2


 1. Attach white 5 1/4" x 4" to back of 
  5 1/4" x 4" topmost layer (this is for sturdiness)

2. Using washi tape adhere die to front center of  topmost
3. Cut die




4. Using Distress Ink ink edges of cut out area of topmost layer

5. Attach 5 1/4" x 4" middle layer onto base





6. Use foam adhesive on back of topmost layer (white side)

7. Attach topmost  that has opening to show middle layer
   and you have framed the middle layer.
