Xyron and Imaginisce Good Dog, Bad Dog Reversible Frame Tutorial

Here's a tutorial to create a reversible Good Dog/ Bad Dog Frame using Xyron Adhesives and Imaginisce Good Dog Collection.

Good Dog

Bad Dog

 Start with a wooden craft frame. Ink the edges with chalk ink.

Run the frame through the Creatopia Machine using Permanent Adhesive. (You can run things up to 1/2" thick through this machine!)

When the frame comes out of the machine, rub your hand over the  backing to burnish the adhesive onto the frame, remove the backing and adhere your patterned paper.  Trim to fit.

Turn the frame over, and run back through the machine to add adhesive to the other side, and repeat the process with a coordinating patterned paper.  Ink the edges of all patterned papers.

Cut a piece of cardboard to mat the picture, run through the Creatopia, and adhere patterned paper as above.  Use the Xyron Mega Runner to attach the photo to the mat.

 Take a 15" length of ribbon, and run through the 1.5" Create-a-Sticker.

Only pull off a few inches of the paper backing at a time (to make it easier to work with), and create pleats as you attach the ribbon to the frame. If you find that you created too much ribbon sticker, simply leave the remaining backing in tact, and store for a later project.

Finish decorating with the coordinating stamps, stickers and chipboard from the collection.

Love this. It would be so much fun to turn the board from good to bad as needed. The family could always tell if Bear had been good or bad.
