- Trim a piece of cardstock to fit inside a store-bought frame.
- Trim the width and length of six glassine bags to fit inside the store-bought frame. Sew along the sides of the bags to form pockets.
- Fill five of the bags with sequins. If desired, sew the top of each bag closed.
- For the sixth bag, punch different sized holes at the bottom.
- Stamp hearts and Valentine sentiments onto cardstock. Align the corresponding Framelits die over each stamped image, and die-cut. For ease of use, we recommend using the Magnetic Platform to hold the Framelits die in place while the shape is being cut.
- Mat each die-cut onto patterned paper. Adhere each to a glassine bag.
- Embellish with a binder clip, metal label, ruffled shredded paper, threaded button, hair pin, metallic cardstock, rick-rack and stamped sentiments.
- Adhere each glassine pocket to the large cardstock sheet. Place the cardstock sheet inside the frame.
