Christmas

Efco have added some new shapes to their range of Pappart Frames…


They can be decorated using acrylic paints and a host of other craft materials and be used as unique picture frames or ornaments for memorabilia.

The frames can be used in a variety of ways all year round but look especially stunning at Christmas when combined with Starshine foil…

Here’s a simple but very effective festive project inspired by ancient Chinese shadow box art and the art of German paper cutting.

Paint the house frame with black acrylic and leave to dry.

 

 

 

 

Place the house frame on the Starshine foil and trace the outline with a pencil. Cut the shape out using the scalpel, ruler and cutting mat. Use double-sided tape on the front edge of the house frame to stick the Starshine foil in position.

 

 

Punch different sized fir trees and reindeer from the sheet of black card. Stick these to the Starshine foil with more double-sided tape. Trim any parts of the shapes that protrude beyond the edge of the house frame.

 

 

 

 

Glue the string of lights to the back of the frame using the hot glue gun. Glue the wool cord around the front edge with the hot glue gun to conceal the double-sided tape which may show through the Starshine foil.
