Directions

Cover the piece of cardboard with material using the glue. Put aside to dry. In the meantime cover the front and sides of styrofoam with glue. Place in center of left over material. Let it dry some. On the front cut from the center to the corners. You will have something like an X cut. Put glue on the inside around the edges. Put center material to the inside over the glue. Let it dry some and than trim of any excess material. Turn over to where you see the front. Trim flowers if needed using the wire cutters. Glue flowers in one corner and glue some to the bottom corner to the opposite side. Cut pearls in half and glue one to each side going from on group on flowers to the other. Glue one button to each side of flowers. Tie ribbon in bow and glue to top corner. With tiny pieces of ribbon cut as if you were making confetti. On the opposite side of corner from the bow put little drops of glue and just throw the pieces of ribbon on it. Let set for a few minutes than shake off any lose ribbon. Glue ruffled lace around the inside of styrofoam. Let this dry completely. A 4" picture fits on the inside perfectly. The cardboard goes in behind the picture to help hold it in. You can decorate this anyway you want to.

Directions

Cover the styrofoam and cardboard like you did in the first picture fame above. Once you have got the styrofoam ready than it is now ready for decorating. Here is what I did. On the outside of styrofoam do 3 rows of ruffled lace. Lace will over lap each other. Using wire cutters, trim flowers if needed. Glue roses across the top adding babies break in different places. Next glue the beads up one side than through the roses and down the other side. Glue buttons on eac end of the beads. Place the other flowers down one side and put in the bottom right corner. Let this all dry completely. Should fit a 4" picture. Cardboard goes on the inside to help hold picture in.

Directions

Cover the cardboard with the wax paper and set aside. With the long side of the material facing you, gather material as if you are making a fan. Place string around the center of it and tie in a knot. Tie it as tight as tou can. Put stiffener in a bowl or you can use a plastic bag. Immerse the material in the stiffener. Remove it squeezing out as much of the stiffener as you can. Lay it on the covered cardboard. Lay out the material to look like a fan and let dry over night. After this is dry, take the raffia ribbon and tie it in a bow in the center of the fan over the string. Cut flowers off of the stem using the wire cutters and remove the leaves also. Arrange flowers above the raffia, putting the large flower in the center and arranging the smaller ones around the larger one. After you have them the way you like then glue them in place. Take the leaves and just glue some anywhere in with the flowers. Place a pice of wire in the back of bow and twist both ends together to make a hanging loop.

Directions

Cut 2 hearts the same size from the lace material. Make sure when putting the ruffled lace around heart that you put it to the inside so that when you turn the right side out that the ruffle is on the outside. Put the ruffled lace between the two hearts and sew together with sewing machine or needle (which ever you perfer) making sure you leave an opening for putting in the potpouri inside. After sewing heart together turn right side out and stuff with potpouri. After filling heart with the potpouri than with the sewing needle sew opening close. Take flowers and arrange at the top center of heart the way you want. Glue in place. Holding ribbons together tie in a bow and glue at top of the flowers. Cut string of beads in half. Take one of the string of beads and fold in half and one to each side of the flower arrangement. Tucking the center of the string of beads as far to the inside of flowers as you can. The beads will just dangle down. Glue a small flower to the center of the bow. You can place this heart anywhere you want. Make a hanger with ribbon and hang it in your closet or throw it in a drawer or you can put it on a wooden frame holder and set it on a shelf some where.
