Daisy frame

I've mentioned before, maybe once or twice, how much I *love* my subscription to Simply Handmade magazine. (It was a Christmas gift from my mom, along with a subscription to Scrapbook Trends, another very cool magazine by the same company....thanks again, Mom!!) There was a cute, simple Daisy Frame in the April/May issue, which was one of several projects I have marked to do "at some point in the future."

I was feeling crafty this afternoon, so I decided to give this one a try. While the one in the sample didn't have a ribbon for hanging, I decided mine didn't seem to want to stand up on its own very well, so I attached a piece of twill ribbon with two heart-shaped brads, so that it can be hung on the wall. I just love this picture of Mackenzie being loved on by her daddy...and so this project is going to Darrell's office to be hung on the wall.

Very sweet. What did you use for the round frame?

LOL - I guess I could have mentioned HOW I made it!! :) It's made with 10 1.5" strips of patterned cardstock for the petals (glue-sticked at the ends), and then the photo is matted on a 6" circle of solid cardstock. The instructions said to use staples to attach the petals to each other, but I used glue dots. I used glue dots to attach the photo as well, and brads to attach the twill ribbon.
