  • How to make a papercraft. Putting A Frame Around A Stamped Image - Step 1
    Step 1

    Use a Glitter Glue to add a little dimension to the frame. This should be done first so that it can dry while you are working on the rest of the project. For an icy look this winter, draw a line of icicles on a sheet of wax paper and allow them to dry completely. For other looks, lay the wax paper over an image (scrolls are one idea) and trace them with the glitter glue or draw the design by hand.

    Use a palette knife to remove the piece from the wax paper when it is dry. Start at one edge and work to the center until you feel like it doesn't want to lift off and then stop and start on the other edge until it loosens.

  • Step 3

    There are times when a die cut just doesn't fit into your creation, but you still need something to finish off the blank cardstock around an image. This is a simple way to finish off any look.
