Embellished Cat Photo


Here's a quick photo embellishment idea for showcasing your pet's photo on any scrapbook page or even for a greeting card. The beads and metallic threads add that touch of bling to show off your special pet in a fun way.

Embellished Cat Photo


  • Photo
  • Blue cardstock
  • Small cabochons
  • 3/4" Treasure Trim
  • Diamond Beadlets
  • Fiskars scalloped edgers
  • Kreinik 1/8" Ribbon 018V Vintage Navy, 002J Japan Gold
  • Kreinik #12 Tapestry Braid 032 Pearl


  1. Cut your cardstock to the right size- measure your photo and add 3.5" to each dimension (7.5 x 9.5 for a 4x6 photo). Use your paper edgers to make scallops on each side of the cardstock. Mount your photo in the center.
  2. Place strips of your 3/4" trim around your photo. Overlap your photo slightly with the edges of the tape. Peel back the red liner on each piece and set aside.
  3. Begin embellishing your border. Outline the outside and inside edge with 018V Vintage Navy ribbon. Make a second border with the 002J Japan Gold ribbon. Place your cabochons along the tape, pressing firmly. Finish with the 032 Pearl braid, zig-zagging around your cabochons. When finished, use the red liner to press your threads securely into the tape.
  4. Place your photo in a shallow tray or ziplock bag and pour diamond beadlets on the exposed tape. Swirl with your fingers to cover fully, and then tap to remove excess beadlets.

Kreinik threads available through needlework stores or www.kreinik.com.
