Inspirational Keepsake using Quick Quotes & Xyron

Hi there,

Today, I am sharing a keepsake that I created with products from Quick Quotes and Xyron.  I used the Anchors Aweigh collection and the Creative Station.  I loved creating with the collection. The patterned papers coordinated beautifully together and the use of the Creative Station made adhering the layers effortless. Take a look at my easy tutorial below.

Wooden Frame (5 x 5)
Wooden Frame (Decorative)
Xyron Adhesive: Creative Station
Hot Glue


Step 1: Cut patterned paper from the Anchors Aweigh paper pack to fit the shape of the base frame.

 Step 2: Run patterned paper through the Creative Station and apply to the base frame. Set aside.

Step 3: Cut strips and coordinated patterned paper from the paper packet to fit the 5 x 5 frame. Distress edges of the papers with Quick Quotes Chalking Ink (Caribbean Blue) and run through the Creative Station.

Step 4: Adhere strips and stickers from the collection to the 5 x 5 frame.

Step 5: Adhere flowers and 3D stickers to the 5 x 5 frame. Set aside
Step 6: Add ribbon to the decorative frame base and secure on the back of the frame.

Step 7: Adhere 5 x 5 frame to decorative frame base.

Step 8: Add additional 3D stickers, bows and buttons.  Continue embellishing as desired.
