CIRCLE FRAME OFF THE PAGE

Hi everyone,
Well, there is no doubt that I am an off-the-page type of person, I just love to display my "hard" work around the house and sometimes I even give it away as a gift.
I have been playing a lot with the circle frames (which I completely adore) and I thought I should do something a little bit different with them. So today I am going to share a very easy step by step for a little circle frame (41/2") displayed on its mini easel!
1. Detach your 4 1/2" circle,  trace it on your choice of paper, cut out and glue. I like to use a very small amount of clear glue so my paper stays nice and smooth. Trace and cut another circle, this time a 4 1/2" circle, that will be your background, glue frame over it. Ink edges. This should look like that:
2. Choose papers & some of your fav punches, assemble as per picture, distress all edges.

Attach your photo using 3D foam for extra dimension.
3. Now let's use a little bit more WOW, choose set of wings, dry emboss with embossing folder of choice (here Cuttlebug "Swirls"), then paint (I used white paint to keep with my angel theme), ink edges. This is what they look like after a little bit of TLC:

Attach on either side of circle frame using strong glue (I used Glossy Accents)
4. Add a few more punches around your photo, a little bit of white ric rac for texture and then you have it, a delightful mini project very quick and easy to realise!

I hope you liked it, thanks for having a look and don't forget to leave a comment!
