We love going to the beach and looking for shells in the sand. This photo frame has been crafted from our own shells, as a memory of wonderful days at the sea.
Step 1- Measuring the Frame
The first thing to do is to take:a book,a meter and a shoe box that you will have to flatten.Take the book and make the shape on the shoe box twice. If the box is not big enough you take another box for the second piece.
My soul is full of longing
For the secret of the sea,
And the heart of the great ocean
Sends a thrilling pulse through me.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Step 2-cut the frame
Now you have to cut it following the line.
Step 3-the Front Part
Take a photo, turn it and do it's shape. It should come out a rectangle, a little smaller than the cardboard.
Do you like collecting seashells?
Do you craft with your shells?
Sand and Shells Frame - If you don't want to make your own.
Another nice frame, although a little bit different from ours. 4x6" frame.
Step 4-The Waves
On the inside of the rectangle you make a curved rectangle all around.
Step 5-The Template
This is how it should look like.
Step 6-color time
It's color time!We used blue because we made a sea frame that we called from the title "Shell Frame".
Step 7-glued it
Before we glued it together we put the shells in the pattern that we wanted.We glued it around but on top otherwise were will photo get in!Then
we left it over the night to make sure that it was really dry.
Step 8-the holder
Wen it was dry we stuck behind the holder made from a piece that was left.
One cannot collect all the beautiful shells on the beach; one can collect only a few, and they are more beautiful if they are few.
Anne Morrow Lindbergh
