Memories Word Frame ~ a tutorial.

Hi everyone!!!  I love the new Word Frames by Clear Scraps. I thought I would share with you how I created mine.  Maybe it will give you some ideas on creating one  for yourself.

I love the vintage look, so I started with that idea in mind.


1. To start you will need old dictionary pages and Fast Finish Decoupage by Beacon.

2. Tear the dictionary pages into meduim size pieces.

3. Adhere the torn page pieces to the back (chipboard) of the Word Frame.


4. When you have the back fully covered, just let it dry.

5. When the back is dry, take a file and go around the edges to take off any extra paper. This is when I shaded around the frame with brown ink.

6.  Attach the acrylic Word Frame to the chipboard frame back with small clips (to keep the acrylic in place) or cloths pins will work.


7.The frame is now ready to paint the letters. This is a picture of the paint and brush I used. A flat, sponge type brush made it so easy!

8. The acrylic Word Frame still has the plastic film on, so if you get some of the paint on the acrylic front, don't worry!

9. When the letters are painted and  dry,  pull off the plastic film (that protects the acrylic) on the front and back of the Word Frame.

I then embellished the Word Frame.  I used  3-IN-1 by Beacon to adhere most of the embellishments.
