Hinged photo frame

Well.... it will be hinged after I get one.

I saw this on someones blog, who I'm trying to find again. I thought I saved it in my files, but it has gone aluf. I'll update when I find it.

 I loved it so much I wanted to make one exactly like it, the colors, the materials, everything. I even went down to my Mom's house and stole some chicken wire.

But as it turns out, it's all my own. I didn't like the chicken wire and stuck with green and white colors, with a hint of yellow.

Everything was cut out with my cuttlebug, lots of Tim Holtz products, a cricut cut for the big flourish, inks and a little glitter glue for the flower centers.

It's built with congregated cardboard, from a scrap box I picked up from Toy'sRUs.  3 layers on each side.

I left the layer between the background and the next layer free from glue, just at the bottom,  to accommodate a photo to slip up thru.  But all the rest was glued with Aleene's white glue.

I wanted to toughen up the delicate flourishes, butterfly, and the green base to the flowers somewhat, so I mod podge everything.
