Don’t you just love yourself some friendly competition? I love it so much I am participating in the Dad and Grad’s picture frame competition here at Crafts Unleashed, without any idea of the rules.
Rules, schmules, really I was just excited to make my father a picture frame for Father’s Day. At first, I couldn’t decide how I wanted to decorate his picture frame. He is an exceptional duck decoy carver and my first thought was to create a frame with a duck motif. However, he is also a great golfer and when I went through my pictures I had a magnificent picture of him golfing next to a lake. It was just too pretty a picture to not use with the frame. And, even though, he is a great wood carver he also has some mad golfing skills!
Golfing motif it was! Luckily for me Consumer Crafts (sponsor of this blog) has some wonderful golf scrapbooking embellishments.
- 9705-3 9x7in holds 4x6in photo frames
- 1032-51 golf 3-D sticker
- 1202-42 golf 2 3-D sticker
- 1208-98 3in chipboard circles
- MS00300014 4.5×6.5 in glitter cardstock stack
- Green Cardstock
- White Cardstock
- Begin by cutting a piece of green cardstock to fit over the top of the picture frame. Adhere the paper to the frame with a thin layer of glue.
- Trace the lip of a cup to make a circle larger than the 3” chipboard. Glue the paper to the top of the chipboard. This is your golf ball.
- Cut white cardstock into a golf tee shape.
- Cut green cardstock into a small hill shape.
- Glue first the green hill onto the frame, then the white tee, and lastly attach the golf ball on top of the tee.
- Attach 3/8” ribbon around the picture opening and around the edge of the picture frame.
- Finish the frame with golf scrapbooking embellishments.
My goal with this tutorial was to make a frame that fit my dad’s personality while also making the concept easy to replicate for the average crafter. With a few Consumer Crafts supplies you too can make a similar Father’s Day Golf Frame.
