Clear Scraps Desktop Frames -- Our Family
Paw Prints Frame

This Is Us Desktop Wood Frame

Hello and happy Saturday! Jennifer here to share one of the fabulous new releases from Clear Scraps!   There are six designs of the Desktop DIY Wood Frames to choose from including the one I  used for my project!  The This Is Us Desktop DIY Wood Frame is perfect for just about any photo. I  used a recent favorite of my kids that I  took for our Christmas cards.  


I  wanted my letters to stand out so I    painted them, along with the top base portion, with black chalk paint.  Any type of paint will do but chalk paint is a favorite as it goes on smoothly as well as dries fast.  


I  covered the bottom base and my frame portion with patterned paper.  I  simply applied my Beacon 3-in-1 Adhesive to the front of each piece and then adhered to the opposite side of the chosen pattern. I  trimmed excess paper away with scissors and an x-acto knife as well as used a sanding tool to smooth edges. I  did apply a small amount of black chalk paint to the edges of each piece. 


Once I  had my photo in place, I  adhered my frame to the front of the Desktop Frame using the Beacon Adhesive.  I  then lined up the slots on both base pieces and adhered them together.  Last, I  inserted the two wood prongs into the slots adding extra Beacon for security.  


To accent, I  adhered stickers from the collection I  used to the frame.  


I  finished by tying a small coordinating buffalo plaid ribbon to the curve of the "S".
