Recycle Empty Tape Roll Photo Frame Tutorial by Our Guest DT Mounika K

Hello Crafters,

A lovely Good Morning to you all,

We are back today with an awesome tutorial in our Teaching and Learning Program. Our Guest DT Mounika has recycled the glue tape rolls into a beautiful photo frame. So from now onward don't throw your rolls but create a beautiful frame like this. Sit back and enjoy the tutorial.

Over to you Mounika,

Hi everyone,

I am so happy to be part of Rainbow Craftykari Guest Design Team member, my heart-full thanks to Maninder Kaur and Team for this opportunity.

Today as part of GDT I am going to show you  how to create photo farm using empty tape rolls.

start with clean the tape roll and softly sand them to get rid of any stickiness and dirt on it. To prepare the base give two coats of gesso and let them dry.

Trace the circle on chipboard using the rolls and cut them for the base and also cut three extra circle in different sizes and pattern papers for the same and distress the edges.

For this I have use Papericious the Floral Season Collection.

Camel texture paste and stencils to create some texture on the rolls and let it to dry. You can use any stencils of your choice.

they are dry, dab them with some acrylic colors using sponge brush, I have used green and blue colors.

all the circle together to make a frame as shown in the picture below and adhere them using white glue. Don't disturb until it dry completely.

embellishment, I have arranged mulberry flowers and some lace flowers, once I was happy with the arrangement I adhere them using glue gun or you can use white glue. As I thought of love theme for this project I choose camera, couple birds and dragon fly, arranged them once I am happy with arrangement, adhere them using glossy accent left them undisturbed for some time.

the middle frame I adhere a photo and on left side I glued some twine, pearl string and heart, for which is distressed with mustard seed and seedless preserve distress inks and added some diamond dust on it. And for the last frame I added a sentiment and some lace to finish off it.

Here are few close up of finished work,
