"Its altered baking tray. All steps and mediums you may check out in Video. I love to re-use old stuff that other people may see as junk. Baking trays, old plates  and muffin trays can turn into very decorative objects. I love those Lion head staples. On the ring you can hang some trinkets to make it even more decorative and to add more elements to your work." ~Olga

"My assignment with Graphic 45 was to design a framed piece using my favorite quote.  I have many favorite quotes but I love butterflies and when I saw the quote “Follow Your Butterflies,” I knew it would be my favorite for this project.  There are lots of wonderful butterflies in so many of the Graphic 45 paper collections that it was hard to choose.  While I could have gone with a mix of all of them, I decided to focus on the beautiful Deluxe Collector’s Edition of Botanicabella. You could easily make this project with any of the wonderful Graphic 45 collections and I hope I’ve inspired you to take your favorite quote and create a beautiful wall frame.  Happy Crafting"! ~Sandy

Tip: While shopping, always look at frames that might work for a project such as this one.  You could do a desk framed piece, large wall frame or one like mine with several “photo” areas.  Any and all frames have potential for a beautiful project showcasing your favorite quote.  I found it easier to create the piece without the glass (save that as a possible cutting mat) and work in the fussy cut elements and embellishments with the backing in place on your frame.
