Use pencil to trace the patterns and x-acto knife to cut out the traced patterns. The frame has 3 parts – back, middle and front.

Step -2:
Take the back side of the frame and place it on a flat surface. Stick the middle parts (bottom, left and right) of the frame on the back part.

The longest part among the middle parts will go along the bottom side of the frame’s back side. Attach the 2 other parts on 2 sides (left and right) of the frame’s back side.

Now carefully attach the front part, making sure to match all 4 sides with the bottom and middle parts.

Step – 4:
Grab a bunch of quilling strips; you will need a lot of them! Use the slotted quilling tool to create loose coils with the strip. Press the loose coil on any one side to form a teardrop shape.

Apply glue to secure the open end. Similarly, create another teardrop shape by using another strip of the same size and color.

Step – 5:
Take the 2 teardrop shape created in the previous step. Glue the shapes side by side to form a basic heart shape.

Step – 6:
Similarly create more quilled heart shapes. I made 14 quilled heart shapes to fill my pattern.

Step – 7:
All items ready? Grab the frame and the quilled hearts and let’s decorate the frame!

Step – 8:
Start to glue the hearts on the front side of the frame. I started to glue the quilled hearts from one side.

Step – 9 and 10:
Continue to glue the quilled hearts until the frame is filled.

Step – 11:
If you want to fill the small gaps between the quilled hearts you can use small loose coils.

Step – 12:
Make the photo frame stand out of craft foam board and attach it on the back side of the frame. Allow the glue to dry. Lay the frame flat until the glue is dried.

Pin for later!
