On last week's Take Out Tuesday Ustream Show we started the Frame Thang! As promised, I wanted to get out all the measurements and supplies need to make this THANG! This is Part 1 of the front side of the Frame Thang...
So lets get started shall we?
First, this is what the Frame Thang looks like...
(7) 12 x 12 Pieces of Heavy Weight Chipboard
(1) Set of Idea-ology Foundation Feet
(1) Set of Idea-ology Binder Rings
(3) Idea-ology Hinge Clips
(5) 12 x 12 Pieces of Pattered Paper (I used Tim Holtz Wall Flower)
(1) Sheet of Cardstock for Structure Strips
Adhere (4) pieces of the 12 x 12 chipboard forming (2) 12 x 12 pieces.
Cut (4) pieces of chipboard to 2 x 12-inches. Adhere the pieces together forming (2) 2 x 12-inch pieces.
Cut (4) pieces of chipboard to 2 x 11-3/4-inches. Adhere the pieces together forming (2) 2 x 11-3/4-inch pieces.
Apply a bead of glue to the bottom edge of the 2 x 12 piece and adhere on top of and flush to the top of the 12 x 12 Base piece. Repeat with remain 2 x 12 piece, adhering it to the bottom edge on top of the 12 x 12 chipboard.
Apply a bead of glue to the bottom, left and right edge of one of the 2 x 11-inch side pieces and adhere to the left edge on top of the 12 x 12 chipboard and in-between the (2) 2 x 12 pieces.
Last, apply a bead of glue along all the top edges of the box. Lower the remaining 12 x 12 piece of chipboard down onto the glued edges forming an enclosed box.
Make (9) structure strips by cutting (9) 1 x 12-inch pieces from cardstock. Score down the center at 1/2-inch and apply Scor-Tape or similar to each side of the score line.
Apply (8) of the structure strips to all the long edges of the box.
Cut (4) structure strips to 2-1/4-inches and apply those to the (4) corners.
Box is made!
Adhere a 12 x 12 sheet of patterned paper to a piece of 12 x 12 chipboard.
Cut the paper covered chip into (9) 1 x 11 pieces. Round off the edges.
Apply glue to each end of the 1 x 11 strip and adhere the first piece 1/2-inch up from the bottom.
For the remaining (8) pieces repeat step above by apply glue to each ended adhering them vertically up the front side of the box leaving 1/4-inch in-between each.
For a bit of a pop, I added brads to each end of the strip.
