Hi everyone!

It's Laura here, and today I am back to celebrate Christmas in July with a DIY picture frame created with the ModaScrap *Happy Frame* dies and the *Xmas LE* paper collection. As always, you can also find a video tutorial (english version), where I show you the step by step process to create this fun papercraft project, that can be used as home decor, or as a handmade Christmas present.


For the frame itself I used a striped patterned paper from the 12x12" Xmas LE collection, and I backed it with another design from the same paper pad. It reminds me of snowfall and I loved the touch of red!


For the tree I used the *Christmas Tree Box* die. I chose the design with the pine needles, as it seemed quite appropriate, and I added some droplets with the ModaScrap Fluffy in Brilliant White. These will mimic the look of falling snow and will add some subtle sparkle to the project.


In the same Christmas Tree Box die set there are dies that cut out a banner with some stars. I cut two out of the ModaScrap Woodstock White 12x12" paper, and coated them with my Fluffy in Brilliant White using a flat paintbrush.


I also die cut some snowflakes from the same Woodstock White 12x12" paper with the *Snowflakes Set* dies. I coated those too with my Fluffy in Brilliant White and I used them to add detail to several areas in the frame.


I then used the *Dashing Rectangles* dies to cut some white paper, as well as the red plaid design and one of the sentiment tags in the Xmas LE collection. I layered them together and I stamped the sentiment "qui foto" (picture here) from the *Album* stamp set. The ink I used is Memento in the color London Fog.


To accent the panel with the sentiment, I decided to use one of the images from the ModaScrap *Unconventional Xmas* stamp set. I stamped it with Memento ink in London Fog on some ModaScrap Woodstock White paper, colored it with Prismacolor Pencils, and then die cut it with the coordinating dies. I also stamped and die cut the word joy, from the same stamp set.


I assembled everything as you see it in the pictures, and that finished off my Christmas themed project!


Don't forget that you can watch the video, if you want to see how to make this handmade picture frame! And make sure to subscribe to the ModaScrap channel for more inspiration from the design team!


Have a wonderful day everyone!
