DIY Hoop Frame {Waffle Flower Crafts}

Hello friends,

Recently, I took a little field trip to IKEA and while browsing the marketplace, these cork trivets- aptly called HEAT- found their way into my smooth gliding cart.

Once home, I wanted to see what I could do to free these cork circles from eternal KP into something a little more.  I combined a trivet with some Waffle Flower Crafts stamps and dies to create a patriotic hoop frame.

I found a favorite picture of my girls from a few years ago (love those matching dresses) and raided my stash for some paper crafting supplies.  A 7" embroidery hoop fits perfectly a top the cork trivet. 

I covered the hoop with the yellow polka dot patterned paper and added the photo- holding it in place with a clip. Next I stamped the the sentiment from the In Every Way stamp set and die cut Perfect Word die and adhered it to the project. 

I die cut the Rosette Hearts Template Die from patterned paper and attached them to the frame.  I also added a couple small banners from the Rosette Hearts die to the photo.  Finally, I added some craft glue to the embroidery hoop and attached it to the trivet. 

Well that's all for me today.  Thanks for stopping by!
