Remove the cardboard backing from the frame. Cover the box frame with paper. Cut to size, apply the glue, then wrap the paper around the front and sides of the frame.
Wrap the round sticks with newspaper, magazine paper, or wrapping paper…anything works for this part!
Glue the sticks together (this is a bit tricky…have patience.)
Wrap the sticks with the thread, yard, or string, tie at the bottom.
Find an old piece of jewelry that would give the piece a little “bling”, and glue it to the front of the string.
Create a clay tile with the word “friend” or “family” or any other word you find inspiring. If you don’t have a clay tile, you can simply glue a work cut from a magazine onto a small piece of foam core, then glue this onto the top of the box frame.
Add embellishments onto the sides or corners, if you are so inspired!
You can find lots of decorative art papers on the internet. Some companies offer a sample book of the papers they sell. This will make it much easier for you to determine the texture of the various papers available. Cut the corners of the paper to make it easier to wrap around the box frame. Examples of items you can add to the box frame
