How about a Gift instead of Cake?

The last item we created at the Confetti Cake Occasions class was a gift you could give away for a birthday.

Although... it is so cute I'm not sure how many people will part with them. I know mine only went as far as my daughters room (there was the perfect picture of us that just had to go in it!).

I found the cute "Tempting Turquoise" frames on sale for $1 each, and then we dressed them up. The ribbon is looped around and just attached to itself using a glue dot. That way it's easy to put a picture in and the flower's location can be adjusted depending on the focal point of the picture inside (and also when I tried to attach it directly to the frame and glass... well let's just say that it didn't go so well).

Here's a tip- to give the flower petals and leaves some depth, use a bone folder to curl them up. By varying the amount of curl it really gives the finished project a lot more character than just flat paper. Also, you can add veins to your leaves using the Simply Scored tool- dress them up as little or as much as you desire :)

Hope this inspires you to make your own altered picture frame. Flutterback soon!
