Li'l Man


Here is a frame I created that is perfect for a little boy's photo! I used the brand new CHA 09 Winter release by Cosmo Cricket to create this frame.
The wooden frame and wooden train are both from Michael's. If you want to make one the tricky part is the train as you have to first create a pattern by placing tracing paper on top of each wooden piece you will need to cut. Then when cutting it out I cut slightly inside the drawn line in order to leave a little of the border showing, making the patterned papers pop!
The frame itself is several squares of pattern paper piece together to fit the frame. Each piece is individually sewn before being place on the frame.
Have you ever made your own frame? They really are fun and you can get very creative with them!
