iLoveToCreate: Retrofabulous Mini-Frame Pendants

"These are your grandmother's crafts, ya gotta problem with that?"

Making these miniature wearable paper artworks is easy peasy and a ton of fun.  Old book pages make great collage backgrounds and you can find images in Dover Books titles or do this with upcycled new magazine pages for a more modern look.  No matter how you do it, Aleene's Dry Adhesives and Jewelry Glue make this a breeze!

Miniature Frame (HHH Enterprises)
Tiny metal Tim Holtz idea-ology flower
4mm crystal AB SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS round
Old book page
Red construction paper
Artistic Wire mesh black
Aleene's Tacky Tape Runner
Aleene's Tacky Sticker Sheets
Aleene's Jewelry and Metal Glue
Jump rings

Chain nose pliers
Small scissors
Trace background paper to fit frame and cut with small paper scissors. 

Cut out and adhere tiny collage elements using Aleene's dry adhesives.

Use Aleene's Jewelry and Metal glue to attach flower and crystal.  (Be sparing, a little goes a long way!)

Cut a small section of mesh and tie a bow, pull mesh tubing on both sides to create bow shape.

I love the mini frames. I like how you did the background, then put the cut out picture on top. I haven't thought of the. Thanks for the inspiration.

Great idea! So pretty!

Is is possible to buy the mini frame pendants online? Who makes them?

For the life of me I cannot find the mini frames. I have checked the HHH website and cannot find them. Do you have an item number for them or maybe they go by another name?
