Christmas is coming

Hi everyone and welcome back to my happy place and this weeks Design Team creation for Imagine if!
This weeks theme is "Frames"
Christmas is only 12 weeks away and im not one for leaving it until the last minute to create gifts for family and friends, with that in mind I had some awesome chipboard embellishments in my kit along with these gorgeous weeny frames.

I had a plan to create wall hangers from old CDs  so I started covering with a collection of adorable Christmas themed papers, once dry I inked the edges.

Next I painted all the frames red, once dry I used a thick coat of mod podge and a good sprinkle of glitter then another coat of mod podge to seal it!  Lots of Christmas sparkle!

I next attached the frames just along the bottom so a photo can be added.

Next is my ever fun part... to embellish! with a selection of Christmas themed chip board pieces that I have used Di stress inks to add colour,some flowers and leaves.
Final touches are some lace trim and a hanger before covering the back with another CD and matching papers!

Pearls, bows, butterflies and sentiments complete!
I cut down a photo to fit in the small frame...Perfect!
Hope you enjoyed this early Christmas treat and thank you for stopping by!
