STEP-BY-STEP How-TO INSTRUCTIONS

Using the Imagine cartridge Enjoy the Seasons, flood fill the box frame from Word of Mouth with the fall/acorn pattern at 8"H. Cut the box frame 4x. Score at intervals.
Add hardware to hold the frame. I used a picture/ribbon holder held by a brad.
Mat your selected papers and adhere to the inside of the frame. I cut my outside layer at 4.75" and my inside layer at 4.5". Add faux stitching if desired. Next, you simply fold in at all the score lines to create a 3D frame. I used hot glue to adhere my folds together.
I cut the acorn (pg 4 accessory and accessory) at 4" H. I then embossed the yellow portion with the Swiss Dot folder and the brown portion with the Square Lattice folder. I pop dotted the brown portion on and completed the look with a linen thread bow and green rhinestone. All of the image cuts were flood filled with patterns from the Imagine cartridge Enjoy the Seasons. I also added a fall ribbon bow, linen thread bow, and corduroy button to each frame to help unify the frames.
I cut the tree (pg 4 Icon, Icon, Icon Layer, Icon Layer) at 4"H. I inked all the edges with Ranger distress ink and completed the look with a linen bow and green rhinestones to the eyes.
I cut the word fall (pg 4 Phrase) at 2" H and completed the look with a linen thread bow and green rhinestones added to the letter ends.
The squirrel (pg 4 Squirrel, Squirrel, Layer, Layer, Shadow) at 4". I added some faux stitching, a linen bow to the hat and green rhinestones to the eyes. All the layers were pop dotted on.
