When giving a handcrafted gift, personalization is a must for me. I fell in love with globecraft frames years ago - and although they are harder to find now, I can never turn away from using one as a special gift.
In this project, I used seasonal papers and gems to create a custom frame for my friend. Each Christmas since my friend's grandson was born, I've made her a globeframe with his picture. This year, I've strayed away from the Christmas theme to Halloween - here Sylas is opening Grandma's Halloween treat package.
I've made this frame a bit interactive by gluing gems back to back and enclosing them in the frame to make a shaker frame.
Here are links to the frames made the past three years (don't know what happened to my first frame).
