I love the colors of St. Patrick’s Day- all the shades of green and the glittery golds! My project today is a DIY frame decor piece to display favorite photos with. It is styled in St. Patrick’s day colors but could really be left up all year long. I am including for you a free Silhouette cutting file, for you to create your own glittery gold, “Lucky Us” title using some Core’dinations Glitter Silk cardstock.
- “Lucky Us” Silhouette Digital Cutting File.
- Black 8 x 10 inch Frame.
- Core’dinations Glitter Silk Paper.
- Core’dinations Core Basics Green Stripe Paper.
- Core’dinations White and Black Dot Paper.
- Darice Mini Clothespins (Painted gold).
- Darice Gold Nylon Cord (Or green and white baker’s twine).
- Wallet Sized Photos.
- Foam Dimensional Adhesive (Pop-dots).
Using the downloadable Silhouette digital cutting file, cut the “Lucky Us” title out of Core’dinations Glitter Silk gold glitter cardstock. Set aside.
To begin your DIY frame decor, disassemble your photo frame and remove glass and discard. Remove photo mat, and frame backing.
Lift both pieces of paper at the corners, and using scissors cut the papers diagonally at the corners.
Flip your finished photo mat over, insert it into your frame and position the “Lucky Us” title as desired. Leave room at the bottom of the matte for photos to hang.
Use regular adhesive for the parts of the title that lie flat on the outside front of the frame.
Remove the photo matte from the frame, and string a length of gold cord or baker’s twine to hang the photos on. Secure the cord on the back side of the photo matte. I used hot glue and some scrap paper, because that is what I had handy.
