1) Gather your supplies: 11×14 frame, patterned papers, 8×10 photo, embellishments, etc.

2) Take the glass out of your frame because you’re making this a 3D project – you’ll be building your project on back of your frame, so cover that in cardstock.

3) Add a strip of silver glitter Pow! paper across the bottom.

4) Cut several flowers from patterned paper using a die cut machine (I used my Silhouette Cameo).

5) Punch flowers from patterned paper and set all the flowers aside.

6) Die cut a large doily (this one is 7") from silver Pow! paper.

7) While that’s cutting, go ahead and back the die cut cards with cardstock and patterned paper

8) Build your page starting with the doily die cut – add it to top right. Glue your photo down on top, towards the right – leaving room to the left. Stagger your die cut cards and add them to the left of the photo, tucking them slightly under the photo.

9) Start layering your flowers using 3D adhesive and a strong liquid adhesive.

10) Add the flowers to the bottom left of the photo, overlapping them onto the die cut cards.

11) Continue embellishing with flowers, die cuts, stickers, and more, until the frame looks full and complete!

You could either give this to the happy couple as a wedding gift, or if it's a member of your family you could hang it on your wall for them to love and appreciate when they visit through the years!
