Tilda's Frame

A co-worker I haven't seen in ages sent me a birthday present last month.  She knows how much we like Christmas ornaments so she sent us two shoes; one shoe was Cinderella and one shoe was Snow White.  Both shoes had the characters inside the shoe and the outsides were painted in the same theme.  They were darling.  Her birthday is in six days, so I'll pop this in the mail for her.  I created this frame by cutting the inside square and then making a box to put this square in.  Then I cut a 6.75 x 6.75 inch piece of corresponding paper and used my Martha Stewart Punch Around the Page punches (would you believe this is the first time I've used any of the four sets I have?) to create this frame.   After punching the frame, I turned it over, laid my inside square on it and traced the inside square.  Then I got my ruler and cut the opening 1/4" smaller and and assembled the frame.  I recently purchased the new Tim Holtz small easel die and this is the first time I've used it for a project.  There's still time to join this challenge.  Pop on over to the Magnolia Stamp Lover's blog and let's see what you can create.
