>We’re very excited about our new Memory Frame Minis (10 and 25pc Value/Bulk packs available – see product detail pages) instant photo and collage charms! After giving them a try, Anne e-mailed that these mini frames are so much fun they’re dangerous! You be the judge! We are having immense fun exploring the design possibilities. What has us won over in addition to their extremely wearable size, is how easy they are to use. Each frame has a doubled piece of acetate in the center. You slide the acetate out, slide your art into it, and slide the whole thing back in the frame. Voila! You’re done.
Although we’d never think of giving up our Weldbond or 3D Crystal Lacquer, using these charms completely eliminates drying times. Your art is framed and ready to wear instantly. (You can use one of our downloadable collage sheets and one of our matching craft punches for instant inspiration). Another big plus is that once you make your piece of jewelry, you can easily change the art in the frames to match your mood or your outfit, and, as sometimes happens, you don’t quite like how the art looks, just take it out and try again. Excellent!
Another thing we like about them is that you don’t have to have the art perfectly trimmed before inserting. You can get it the approximate size, put it in the acetate, and then trim to fit using scissors. I was playing with them yesterday and was having such fun that I didn’t get any housework done at all.
About the designer: Our friend and coworker Anne Strasser is always busy! When she’s here she channels her inner Martha big time! Otherwise, she’s mom to two lovely daughters and enjoys cooking up a storm and crafting with whatever crosses her path! She’s one crafty force of nature!
About our Memory Frame Minis: We stock these mini frames and inserts in four sizes: .75″ and 1″ squares with top loops, and .75″ squares with 2 loops for connecting as bracelet components or pendants, as well as .65 x .85″ (16x22mm) rectangles ~ good for word and message charms.
Coordinates with our 1″ craft/paper punches and our growing selection of downloadable art sheets. We like to secure the artwork on the inside with a drop of 3D Crystal Lacquer, Weldbond or Diamond Glaze. Complete the look with one of our jump rings, organza cords, charm bracelets, cords, chains or wires. Plan ahead! This is a wonderful idea for Mother’s Day, holiday presents, jewelry and ornaments!
