Happy Thanksgiving!!! Picture Frame using Season of Thanks

Good Morning!! Happy Thanksgiving!!! This is my favorite holiday out of the year!! I love the smells and the food :) Apple pie is my favorite pie!! I hope everyone has a wonderful and safe Thanksgiving!!

In honor of Thanksgiving I created the project below! I have to confess I've had this Decor Element since after convention last year and never got around to making this project. lol However this year I did and I made it for our home!! This was my first time using a decor element and yee gads they are awesome!!! Why have I waited so long to play with them!!! They are fun and so simple to use!!!

I used Season of Thanks Decor Element size small in Chocolate item #114887. I also used Autumn Traditions Designer Series Paper item #115668 along with my Big Shot and the Leaves #2 Original die.

Directions~

1. I choose a picture frame for this project. You will need to clean the surface where your going to be placing your Decor Element make sure its dry to before applying it. I put the Decor Element on first, I actually cut it apart and then put it on it made it easier to work with I think.

2. Then I took our Autumn Traditions DSP and cut 2 1/16" x 11" strips in the different patterns. Now you think how did she get that on straight well I'll let you in on my little secret. I took a piece of our Grid Paper and cut it down to fit into the frame and then sticky stripped the pieces on top of it. Worked great!! With our grid paper I was able to line up everything straight and perfect! I took some of our Ribbon Originals Orchard and ran a strip down one side. I secured it to the back with glue dots.

3. I took my Big Shot and Leaves #2 Original Die and ran some leaves off in the Autumn Traditions DSP. I took a Sponge Dauber and added ink to the edges. I placed them, where there was holes from the wording to fill in. I added a Chocolate Chip Corduroy Button with some natural hemp too. On two of the leaves I added some Natural Hemp to jazz them up a little.
