Materials Needed

1. 1. Prepare frame by painting side edges with a coordinating pink paint
and replacing the white ribbon that comes with the frame with pink.
2. 2. Attach Mon Petit metal border strips onto each side of the frame,
and fill the gaps and corners using coordinating Mon Petit metal
3. 3. Use the Textile Texture embossing plate and your Cuttlebug to create
pink embossed mats for inside of each window opening. These have the
same look as the metal accessories! Lightly brush each embossed piece
of cardstock with pink and black ink. Don't worry too much about the
center of each mat as it will be hidden by a picture.
4. 4. Use Cricut and the Doodletype Alphabet Cartridge to cut 3,6, 9 and
12 month phrases for each window. To achieve type that is small enough
to fit, chose the 'square' feature and cut each letter at 1". Adhere to
outside of frame.
5. 5. Your frame is now ready to give as a gift to a new baby! As the baby
grows, the parents can place pictures into the frame, creating a nice
keepsake as the baby grows!
6. 6. To add an additional personal touch, cut and place the babies name
on the center plaque!
