School is so COOL with Nikki's papers!

Hi everyone!! Julie with you here today and I am sharing an altered frame and a layout I made with the School is Cool collection!!

First my frame!!!

And now I am going to share how I made it!!

I started off with an old frame that I had!

And some basic tools, Beacon's Zip Dry, scissors and a ruler... and of course the School is Cool collection!

I took 12x12 sheets from the collection, cut them into 2 inch strips (that the length of the wood on the frame I used) and then cut the 12x12 strips into half.... 

Also in this photo you can see my 'pokey stick'... well that's what I call it *wink* -- it's actually a paper piercer -- but it is what I used to roll the now 2 inch wide by 6 inch length paper strips

Once I had each strip rolled, I adhered the end seams using Beacon's Zip Dry -- and I held them until they were sealed dry. (Which doesn't take long as it is ZIP dry!) 

After I rolled enough papers to go all the way around the frame, I glued each one down and then added more of Nikki's School is Cool punch outs and stickers and my frame was complete!!

Here it is again! 

And I also wanted to share a layout I made for today!


Thanks so much for stopping by today!!!! 

And don't forget Nikki's card kit available for purchase this month!! It is AMAZING!
