12 Days Of Christmas Swap Day 2

Here is Day 2 as I promised. You might have to scroll down to see Day One.  For Day 2 we had to make or buy two items. I decided to make altered picture frames.  The first one I did in black and white. The second is my swap partners color choice of blue and white.


I painted the frame which I bought at Walmart black then I covered it with paper in a harlequin pattern from DCWV Halloween stack Midnight Spell. I applied it with Mod podge.  After it was all dry I attached black braid trim to the edge.  The flowers and brads are from Paper Studio.  I used more mod podge to shape the flowers they were very flat.  The bling is from Recollections at Micheal's. The sentiment is a stamp by Emma at My Creative Time called Just Simply Live.


Here is the white and blue frame.  I painted it white and then added the snowflakes. The large ones are from Paper Studio and the smaller ones are from Jollee's stickers.  I used a blue glitter pen to draw the lines around the inside and outside edges. The word stickers in a white glitter are from Glitz & Glitter. Even though the snowflakes were from different makers they fit together well.  This will be a fun frame for winter pictures not just for Christmas.

Here they are side by side.

Now for what my awesome swap partner Rhonda sent me.

Have you ever seen a Reese's this big before? Not me. I bet I can eat the whole thing though.  It may take a few days but hey I' m up for the challenge.

Hope you enjoyed, be back shortly for day three.  Then tomarrow I will open day four and post it.
Bye Bye for now,
