Altered Frame: Nice 'Stache Day

By Jcchris
Hi there! Lately I have a fetish for bow tie and mustache. I'm seeing these everywhere!! That totally inspired me to create an altered frame. This will be perfect for home decor, for a 'stache birthday theme or a gift to cheer up your man!
 So I am here to show you a simple tutorial on an altered frame I created for Doodlebug Design. The assembling of the frame is pretty easy to do.  The mustache I cut it using my Cameo but you can always print the image onto the patterned paper and cut.
All you need is a frame, alphabet stickers (candy shoppe), rub on (jack & jill), Snips & Snails: 6x6 paper pad + button.
So let's move on with the cute paper bow tie...
1. First, cut the paper to these measurements: 4"x1.5". Round the corners if you wish.
Photobucket2. Next, fold the paper across and repeat once again.- 
Photobucket3. Now, you will need to create a space by inserting a finger into the fold. Push the paper down as shown and crease it. Do it for both sides.
Photobucket4. Once you are done, open up the fold as shown.
Photobucket5. Then, flip the bottom to the top and crease it at the line. Do it for both sides.
Photobucket6. Here's what it will look like.
Photobucket7. Fold the corners down of the top side, just like how you fold the 'paper airplane'. Do it for both sides.
Photobucket8. Lastly, what you need to do is to open up, hold the ends and push it upward. Be sure to hold the ends as shown here.
PhotobucketTa daa... here's the bow tie :)
PhotobucketI embellished the center of the paper bow tie with a button from the Snips & Snails collection.
Here's a close up of the frame! Hope you enjoyed today's tutorial :)
