I am always looking to create stunning jewelry pieces that have a polished and sleek look. These frames are perfect for that and so easy to use! You can finish a few of them in an afternoon. Perfect for those handmade Holiday gifts without spending all summer making them!
The unique structure of a 3 piece frame makes it easy to use a piece of fabric and sandwich it between the front frame and the back plate by wrapping it around the curved centerpiece.
Here are just some ideas of what you can display inside them:
- cross stitch
- piece of fabric from a t-shirt or dress that has sentimental value
- piece of your wedding vail
- washi tape
- quilted fabric
- fortune cookie quote
- or even draw directly on it with a sharpie
