Glittery Frame Bulletin Board - featuring Elmer's products

I often print out recipes which then get smudged, splashed, and lost while I'm blundering around in the kitchen. I thought that having a small bulletin board in the kitchen could be super handy, and keep me slightly more organized, so I made one.



For this project I used...

  • Elmer's Precision Embellishment Glue
  • Elmer's Painters Neon Colors
  • X-ACTO Gripster Craft Knife
  • CraftBond Permanent Scrapbooking Tape
  • A plastic white frame
  • Glitter
  • Beads, buttons and paper flowers
  • Cork mat
  • White tissue paper
  • Thumbtacks

I started by removing the glass and backing from my frame and gathering my materials. Make sure your frame is clean and free from greasy fingerprints!



Next I randomly dabbed paint on the frame. Don't worry about covering the whole thing, and don't worry about being neat and tidy.



Dab some Elmer's Precision Embellishment Glue and blend it with the paint. Don't mix it too much! You want some variation with the colours.



Now apply the tissue paper. You can tear it into small bits to cover any holes. Using a damp paintbrush, smooth the paper slightly. The paint and glue should bleed through the tissue giving pretty effect.



Add some additional dabs of colour to create more interest.



When this dries trim the hanging edges of tissue and apply another thin coat of the embellishment glue and a sprinkling of glitter to finish. When this sets, run the CraftBond Permanent Scrapbooking Tape around the outside edge of the frame and apply a trim to give a finished look.

Using the frame insert as a template, cut your cork mat to fit the frame using the Gripster Craft Knife and Self-Healing Cutting Mat. Insert the mat into the frame and replace the backing.

Now, add a slew of embellishments using Elmer's Precision Embellishment Glue!



To fill in some areas I simply applied the glue with the fine applicator tip and then poured small seed beads into place. The glue dries nice and clear so no one will be the wiser once it's set Wink



Hmmm, I think I'll be making another one of these to display brooches, buttons and pins at craft shows.

Again, you're brilliant!  Using the glue to blend the paint is a marvelous idea, and the effect is lovely!
