Decorated Wooden Frames

Here is a simple and effective way to decorate a wooden frame using a TLC quikSAND Accent Kit. The quikSAND kits make it easy to decorate the frame, but you can use any scrapbooking products that you may already have at home.

Materials

TLC quikSAND Accent Kit – Genuine Boy (boy theme)
Or
TLC quikSAND Accent Kit – Being You (girl theme)
TLC Candid Alphabet Stickers – black
Double sided foam squares
Wooden Frame
Ribbon
Floss
Mod Podge
(All paper needed comes in quikSAND kit, you can use any kit to suit your needs)


Instructions

1. Trace the wooden frame shape on the back of the patterned paper. Cut along traced lines and adhere the paper to the front of the frame using Mod Podge. Allow it to dry completely and then sand and ink around the edges of the paper.

2. Trace a circle on the back of another piece of patterned paper and cut out. Ink or sand the edges of the circle. Adhere it to the top, right corner of the frame, allowing it to overlap on the top and the right side. Trim the paper even with the frame. When it’s completely dry, ink or sand the edges that were trimmed.

3. For the “Genuine Boy” frame, cut or punch a 2” circle from the Limeade cardstock. Sand the edges and adhere to the frame, allowing it to overlap the left side as shown.

4. Remove one of the photo accents from the quikSAND Accent sheet. Sand the edges and adhere to the frame so that it overlaps the small circle and extends inside the frame opening.

5. Remove the title and the oval nameplate from the quikSAND Accent sheet and sand the edges of both pieces. Cut a piece of cardstock 7” x 1 7/8” and sand the edges. Adhere the title to the cardstock block, leaving approximately 1/8” on all sides. Use foam squares to attach the title just below the opening of the frame as shown.

6. Cut a piece of cardstock 3 ¼” x 1 3/8” and sand the edges. Use TLC Candid Alphabet Stickers to apply the name of the person in the photo to the oval nameplate. Use foam squares to attach the nameplate to the cardstock plate. Adhere the block over the large circle, allowing it to overlap the inside opening of the frame as shown.

7. For the “Being You” frame remove the small angled tag from the quikSAND Accent sheet. Sand the edges and apply the year using the TLC Candid Alphabet Stickers. Tie the tag to the bow using ¼” ribbon.

8. Add a ribbon embellishment if desired.
