How to Make a Steampunk Metal Look Frame
Don’t let this Steampunk Metal Look Frame fool you; it’s created from Dream Sequins sheets, alcohol inks and wood, not distressed metal! Test out your paper crafting talents and try your hand at creating this edgy, modern frame.
Paint the edges
Use the foam brush to paint the edges of the frame black. Let dry completely.
Emboss the dream sequins
Use the embossing folders and the Cuttlebug to emboss the Dream Sequins sheets.
Apply rubber cement
According to the manufacturer’s instructions, apply rubber cement to the frame and embossed sheets.
Arrange the sheets
Arrange the sheets on the frame and use the X-ACTO knife to trim any excess.
Push in thumbtacks
Push in the thumbtacks at the seams of the sheets. Use a hammer if necessary.
Apply ink randomly
Apply alcohol inks randomly. To get runs, hold the frame at an angle and drop the ink, allowing it to run down the frame.
Attach the chain
Attach the chain to the top of the frame using a thumb tack. Attach the key charms to the chain using a small jump ring.
