{Flower Embellished Frame}

Hey, y'all!  I'm excited to be sharing the frame I created that was featured on The Hair Bow Company's blog last week.
For this project, you will need a wooden frame, scrapbook paper, Mod Podge, paint, and flowers from The Hair Bow Company.  (I'm notorious for starting out with a plan and changing it.  That's why I ended up switching out two of the flowers I initially selected for two others.)
Begin by painting the back and sides of your frame in a color that coordinates with your flowers and paper.
When the paint is dry, trace your frame on the back of your scrapbook paper and cut out your traced shape.
Apply a coat of Mod Podge to the top of your frame and adhere the paper to the frame.  (It's helpful to use an old gift card or credit card to smooth out any bubbles.)
I love to rub an ink pad over the edges and corners of projects like this to add character.  When the Mod Podge and ink has had adequate time to dry, coat the entire piece with Mod Podge to seal it.  Then it's embellishment time, which is always my favorite part!
I took one of The Hair Bow Company's Silk Rose Flowers and separated the bottom petals from the middle.  I hot glued the bottom petals to the frame and added a scrapbook embellishment to the center.  I also glued a yellow Pettie Flower and a navy and white polka dotted Shabby Flower to the frame as well.
  I created a small print with PicMonkey to fit in my frame.  I stuck the image in the frame, and my embellished frame was complete.
I love the colors of the scrapbook paper.
And I love the dimension the flowers add.
This is such a cheerful piece of decor to add to your house to help chase away the winter blues.  And it would be a lovely housewarming gift for a friend.
