More altered beer mats



I been playing with some more of the beer mats that Wendy on MSE sent me this is the photo frame I've come up with this time. I've used 6 beer mats in all for this project. First of all I cut a circle apature into 3 of them with my nesties and cuttlebug, then I have covered them in K&Co paper attached a photo to each one and then attached one of the other beermats that I covered with co-ordinating paper to the back. Once I had got 3 frames I punched holes in the edges and threaded ribbon through to hold them together and decorated the fronts with pink roses and butterflies. The butterflies have tiny gems down their bodies ans stickles on the wings, the roses have also had the stickles treatment on the petals.

I would like to enter this in One Stop Craft Challenge 78 - Anything but a card

That is absolutely fantastic Jenny, everything goes together beautifully. The paper is gorgeous and the flowers and ribbon finish it off so well. If you do craft fairs you should make some of these, a guaranteed sell out!
