Project Instructions

Step 1 Thin the Bittersweet paint with a little water then use to “stain” the front of the frame.

Step 2 Tear the bottom off the lunch bag then tear down the seam to create a flat piece of paper. Tightly crumple the paper to create lots of creases then pull apart and flatten slightly.

Step 3 Dampen the sea sponge slightly then dip into Hauser Medium Green paint. Lightly whisk the sponge across the top of the creased paper. Let dry.

Step 4 Press the painted paper onto the adhesive side of the foam sheet. Trim the edges of the paper even with the foam then glue behind the opening in the frame.

Step 5 Use a die cutting machine to cut a seasonal image or trace the outline of a seasonal shape from a card, book or magazine onto black cardstock then cut out. Glue to the center of the frame.

Step 6 Hang the frame from the twig with raffia as shown.

Tips

Hang stars or other ornaments/Christmas shapes on the inside of laser frames instead of artwork as shown.
