1. Remove the back from an old frame and attach wire or hemp zig zagging across the back.
2. Create pennants from ATC cards, paper and tags. Trim edges using pinking shears, ink and tie these along with tags and the chipboard flash card to the hemp strung across the center of your frame.
3. Attach each pennant or tag using buttons and string, twill, trim, lace or ribbon.
4. Paint chipboard letters off-white, let dry, sand, coat with glitter and adhere to chosen pennants or tags.
5. Ink edges of other chipboard letters to distress and adhere to chosen pennants or tags. Embellish with gems, glitter leaves, flowers or adhesive pearls.
6. To further embellish, layer metal bookplate on top of tag, then adhere chipboard letter to the center of this.
7. Ink edges of chipboard hearts and vintage pictures and tie to open spaces between pennants and tags.
