Big Shot Blog Hop How tos

Whoops I had this set for 6pm, instead of 6am!
Folding Frame

Back view

Trim frame flap on each frame piece to about 1/2".  
You don't want it to show in the next opening.

Attach to each other by adhering 1/2" flap to it's own frame
then to back edge of next frame.  I used Sticky Strip for added strength.

 Layer Lace Edge punch strips over front edge.  This is a view
from the back side.  The ends meet behind the flower.

Cover each opening on the backside with cardstock.  You could also use dsp.

Decorate, insert photos, and you're set to go. 

This would make a great baby shower table decoration.

This is so much darker in the photos.  It's more a sky blue color.
Die cut Circle 5 rings.  First I brayered with Baja Breeze over Bashful Blue then embossed with clear EP mixed with Iridescent Ice.  That was done in a class.  Someone was cleaning up for me, and dumped clear EP into the wrong jar. 
So now it's gone!  I used it up.  :D

On each die cut, fold your circle flap in half then back across the front side of the ring.  Cut 4 flaps at an angle to fit over rings.  The top tab can stay the original size.

Fold the flap over the bottom of the next ring
Attach with Sticky Strip until all five are attached in a row.

To decorate I die cut the letters from Silver Glimmer paper. Die cut this glitter side 
toward the die to get a clean cut.  The snowflakes are cut from Shimmer paper using
the Northern Frost Decorative Strip Die  Then all attached them to the rings with glue dots.

I punched a 1/8" hole and threaded 1'8" Taffeta Ribbon
in a loop to hang it.  The bow is attached over the hole.

To bling up the Taffeta ribbon bow, I edged the ribbon (After I tied and attached the bow!) with Tombow Mono Multi and covered that with Silver Glass Glitter.

Cut the flaps out of 5 frames.  Adhere white over opening on backside.  Attach a 1 1/2" square of dsp to front side.  Attach letters cut from Red glimmer paper, to center 3 frames.  You could easily make this longer, just add more frames.  Die cut shapes from Stocking Accent die, or punch shapes with Ornament punch.  Attach on end frames.  I tied White Taffeta around the ornament.  The holly leaves are scored down the center.  I tied frames together with Red/White Baker's Twine, tying at each section.

Punch a 1/8" hole in each of the top corners.

The white decoration is the center of a circle from the Lace Edge punch.

That's it folks!  Thanks for stopping by.
Happy stamping!
