Square altered frame *Epiphany Crafts*

Hello friends. I'm  here to share with you how I took the latest assignment from Epiphany Crafts of creating a “square” themed project literally and surprised even myself at how super easy it was to alter a thrift store find frame.

Supplies Used:
Epiphany Crafts Shape Studio Tool Square 25 SST-38
Epiphany Crafts Shape Studio Accessories Bubble Caps Square 25 SSA-40
Frame- Thrift store find
Cardstock- WorldWin
Pattern papers- She Art, Pink Paislee
Rubon- She Art, Pink Paislee
Quote- Essence, Ruby Rock It
Paint- Green tea, Americana
Thread- Coats and Clark
Sewing Machine- Kenmore
Adhesives- Thermoweb, Hampton Arts


1. If the glass in your frame cannot be detached from your frame (like mine), cover the glass part with washi tape. Sand the frame and paint with desired color.  Put at least three coatings to totally cover the black frame. Set aside to dry

2. While waiting for the frame to dry. Prepare the art that will go in the center of the frame. Punch out square papers from the She Arts paper pack. Add bubble stickers to each one to create the 3D accents. 

3. Measure the inside of the frame and cut a cardstock to fit that measurement. Cut out the quote from a Ruby Rock It paper. Mat with white cardstock and place in the middle of the cardstock. Create a 1” grid around the quote with a pencil and ruler. 

4. Using the grid that you’ve created, add machine stitching to the paper. NOTE: I only wanted the sewn grid to go around my quote and fit 20 square accents so I didn’t add stitching anything after that. Erase the grid marks.
5.  Add doily rubons on three different parts of the cardstock.
6. Adhere the quote using foam adhesive. Add the square bubble accents around the quote using some dot adhesive. Adhere the cardstock permanently to the frame using a glue gun. 

And here's the finished project again....

What about you? What do you picture creating with a "square" assignment?
