Materials:

  • Square wood frame or sign, your choice of size
  • Acrylic paint, black or color of your choice

  • Cricut machine with black pen
  • Spray adhesive

Measure the opening in the frame.  Take half the measurement and cut 4 squares of scrapbook paper or cardstock to that size.  For example, the opening in the sample frame is 10 inches, so each paper square should measure 5 x 5 inches.

Select a design from Cricut Design Space with a hand drawn seasonal appearance, like this one, #MD77B33A. Using your Cricut, draw the design on white cardstock using a black pen and cut it out in a rotated square (square diamond).  Cut an additional, slightly larger square from black cardstock.

Extend the hand drawn appearance to the 4 squares of scrapbook paper by doodling around the main shapes in each design using the black pen.

Adhere the 4 squares of scrapbook paper to the back of the frame using spray adhesive or other adhesive of your choice. Layer the white square with the drawing on top of the larger black square and adhere both in the center of the frame.
