DIY - Do Small Things with Great Love Frame

Mother's Day is always a great time to share gifts that communicate a message of love. Mother Teresa was mother to so many in need of love. What a great message she has left us with: "Do small things with GREAT LOVE".

Do Small Things with Great Love

Here's what you'll need to create this frame:
• 10" x 12" Floating Frame
• Vinyl Saying (Cut in our Imaging Center)
• Tweezers
• Scissors
• Scrapbook Paper (to make the flowers)
• Glue
• Pearl Stickers

1. Make sure to clean and dry the glass before starting. Apply the Vinyl Saying to the glass.  If you're new at using Vinyl, we have a cool video created by 8-year old Hannah in which she describes the simple steps you'll need to do to install the vinyl.

Our Imaging Center also does special orders for vinyl sayings and graphics, so this means you can have it be anything you want! You can call us at 360-794-6745 ext. 108 and we'll be happy to help you find the saying that would fit your project.

2. Cut the paper flowers with our flower die using our Free Die Cut Machines. This die will cut out the circle and spiral all at once. You can also do it by hand. It's very easy. Just cut out a 3" and 4" circle for each flower. Then with your scissors cut your circle into a spiral. Starting with the outside spiral, use tweezers to grab the paper and twist inward. Once you reach the middle, leave a small space for your glue. Release the tweezers and glue in place.

3. Glue a string of Pearl Stickers as an embellishment all around your inner frame.
