Name Frame

Here is the frame I mentioned last week in the post about removing glass that is hot glued in.  I do not recommend trying it!!!!  It is there to stay.  I used Times New Roman for the last name, and Tabitha for the first names.

This is the first one I made, (below)the one I tried to take apart.  I thought the name was too small, and I centered the name and est. as one object.  I wasn't satisfied with how it looked.  I re-did it and made Hill larger and centered that, and just put est. in the empty space below.


This is how the frame looks with the hot glue holding the frame in.  A mess, I know!!!!  I cover the glue with ribbon if it is a gift.  I won't be putting a continuous bead of glue anymore either.  After this experience, I will just put globs in the four corners, and maybe in the center of each edge.

Here I managed to remove a small section of the glue.  It was no easy task!  The hot glue holds very securely!!!!

I am curious. Did you use a cricut with vinyl to make this frame? If not, will you provide a few more details to your instructions. I love the frame and might like to try one on my own.

Are your letters on the top of the glass, or underneath?

Denise Hill said...

There are 2 pieces of glass. The letters are on top of the first piece, with a second piece of glass on top of that, so the letters are in between the 2 pieces of glass.
