I made this keepsake frame for my Great Nephew’s Baptism this past weekend. Isn’t he a cutie??! I just adore him! It’s so nice to be able to hold a baby again as I was really starting to miss this, as my boys are 11 and 8 now! Times just passes so quickly.
Cardboard cut to 4 inch square (Bazzil Chipboard)
Paper hole punch and eyelet setter (Crop a dile)
Square 1 1/4 inch paper punch
2 metal eyelets
15″ length of Ribbon, 15″ length of co-ordinating ribbon
Foam Adhesive Tape 1/2″ wide (Scotch foam adhesive tape)
mini fastener (safety pin)
Decorative letters (for initials)
1. Cover the cardboard coaster with dp, and round the corners.
2. Punch two holes 1/4 inch down from the top, and 1/2 inch in from the sides. Set with metal eyelets. Feed the ends of the ribbon through the holes and tie off the knots.
3. Tie alternate ribbon around the frame and make a bow on the right side.
4. Cut a 2 inch by 1 1/2 inch rectangle from light weight cardboard. Cover with decorative paper. Using the corner of a square paper punch, punch out the inverted v shape from the bottom center of the rectangle to create the tag. Punch a hole at the top.
5. Adhere decorative letters for baby’s initials. I’ve used 1/2 inch brass letters found at the dollar store. Attach the tag to the ribbon using a tiny safety pin.
6. Cut two 2 1/2 inch squares from lightweight cardboard, cover one with paper, punch a 1 1/4″ square from center of that square. Place 1/4″ strips of adhesive foam tape down the sides and across the bottom backside of the decorated square, and adhere to the other square to form your dimensional frame. The top is open to slip in the photo and plastic protector. Stamp the word “cherish” across the bottom.
7. Adhere the mini frame to the wall hanging, over the left side of the ribbon.
