Creative Use of an Unconventional Frame Die

Hello friends!

I am popping in to share a new Frame die. 

This Mini Instant Frame Die is in the form of Polaroid Frame type of shape. With a die like this, you MUST try to use it in creative ways to make it worthwhile.

 You can use this die to frame a photo, sentiment or images. You can also use just part of it! For example, I trimmed off the upper part of the frame and used the bottom part for the stamped sentiment!

Today's project is a bright and gold combo.


The gold metallic frame really draws the eyes to the focal point.


I die cut and water-colored the flowers from Zero-Waste 3D Floral Cover Die (another goodie) and assembled this floral frame arrangement.

I also saved the tiny bits (tiny green dots) from the Zero-Waste 3D Floral Cover Die-true ZERO waste! I treated tiny dots like "sequins". Aren't they cute?


Last but not least, here is another project with this frame die. 

thank you -008 

 I hope this post gives you some idea on how to stretch a frame die like this. Thanks for stopping by!

I like the idea for how to use just part of the frame. Good tip if the thinner lines happen to break.
