Heat embossed photo frame

Last Monday, I met up with some crafting buddies in Bristol. Sueplayingwithpaper showed us how to make this fab project, using a plain wooden photo frame. Despite using the same basic materials, not one of the finished articles looked alike. We used UTEE & various embossing powders, then added various embellishments. I chose to use buttons & the two leaves in the corners were made by pouring molten powder over rubber stamps, then fixed into place on the frame. The appearance of the frame can be changed at any time by simply reheating, adding more powders etc.
