Fussy cutting just so happens to be one of my very favorite scrapbooking tricks. I love to cut out around the shapes and then rough them up with my fingers for a bit of texture. For this project I wanted to repurpose an old table top frame. I wanted something to use as a lovely reminder and decoration for my daughter’s room. It turned out to be a pretty cool 3-D paper project.
Here are the supplies you’ll need. Really any floral patterned paper will do the trick. Pink Paislee has lots of options!First you’ll start out with the base of the frame. Take the glass out and trace it to get the desired size.
Cut that out and slide it in first, then the glass, then the back of the frame holder. You’ll want to work on top of the glass (this way you can switch out what’s in there without having to ditch the entire frame!
Now we fussy cut. I started by cutting the flowers out fairly closely around the print. This just makes it easier to flip and maneuver the paper as you cut. Cut right up to the edge of the design to get the same look I have here.
Choose your favorite Thickers and place them centered inside the frame. Then use your finger tips to rough up and bend the edges of the fussy cut flowers. Here is where the 3-D part comes in. Have fun with it. Make the flowers look as though they are growing out of the project!
