Buttons and Bows Frame

1/22/2016 | Lynn Lilly
Deflecto’s Black Bordered Craft Frame, 5″ x 7″, is the perfect base for embellishment. I pulled together my stash of buttons and the hot glue gun to add a perfect pop of color for this sweet picture of my ancestors. It sits in my entry as a reminder of the love that it took for me to be here today.

This project is a quick and fun one. I found a fun new glue stick at CHA, so I really wanted an excuse to use my glue gun. 😉

Let’s get crafting!

You will need:

Craft Frame 5″x7″ – Black Item Number: 69575CR
Hot Glue gun
Glue sticks or my new favorite Glue ROLL, a 5-foot long glue stick by SureBonder.
Hair dryer (for the final trick!)

Here’s what you do

Glue buttons to frame. Be sure to vary the sizes and spacing to fill the space, the black backdrop on the frame will pop the button color.

Wrap ribbon around the frame and tie the bow.

Here is the final fun trick!! Use your hair dryer to blow away any glue guns strings for the perfect finish.
