Christmas Tree Frame


  • Creative Paperclay, white
  • Metallic gold and olive green paints
  • White acrylic paint
  • Paper crimper
  • Ripple-edge scissors
  • 8” X 10” flat frame
  • 24 gauge green wire
  • Red glass seed beads
  • White vellum
  • Gold paper
  • White tissue paper
  • Dazzle-Tac Jewelry Glue
  • Liquid laminate
  • Zip-dry paper glue
  • Gold embossing ink and powder
  • Heat embossing tool
  • Tree shape cookie cutter, or tree pattern of your choice.
  • Craft knife
  • Ruler
  • Needle-nosed pliers
  • Brayer


  1. Roll out a portion of the paper clay to 1/8” thickness on a protective surface. Use a tree cookie cutter to cut out three trees. If you use a tree pattern instead, you will need a craft knife to cut them out of the clay. Place aside and let dry at least 4 hours. Paint trees metallic green and let dry.
  2. Tear small pieces of tissue paper and glue to front of frame using Liquid Laminate as per bottle directions. Let dry and then paint entire frame using white acrylic paint. Let dry and paint frame again with the gold paint. Let dry.
  3. Paint some gold embossing ink onto outside and inside edge of frame. Sprinkle gold embossing powder onto these areas. Heat set using the embossing tool. Let cool.
  4. Cut a 2” wide by 10” long strip of white vellum. Trim edges using decorative scissors. Run through the paper crimper and glue to left side of frame with Zip-Dry.
  5. Cut a 1 ½” by 9” strip of gold paper and trim edges using the decorative scissors. Glue gold strip over vellum strip with Zip-Dry
  6. Cute three 5” pieces of green wire and curl ends into spiral shapes. Glue wires to the back of the trees with Dazzle-Tac. Let dry and then glue the trees onto the frame with Dazzle-Tac, leaving space on the frame as in photo for berries.
  7. Use Dazzle-Tac to glue red glass beads as berries to top, bottom and in-between trees. Lay flat to dry before inserting photo.
