Mini chipboard frames from the A Million Memories November kit

The A Million Memories November kit comes with a pack of adorable American Crafts mini chipboard frames. If you like to add fun little details to your pages, these frames have a lot of potential. I posted a list of ideas on the AMM message boards. Here are some examples:

1. Use them as picture frames like I did on this layout:
2. Use one as a base or frame for your title:

3. Back the frame with a piece of a dictionary page, then add an embellishment (in this case I added one of the Prima pebbles from the kit):
4. Cut out a specific word from a dictionary page:
5. Add Stickles or glitter:
6. Paint it and top with Glossy Accents, then add rhinestones:
7. Fill it with mini pearls or seed beads and add a title. For this one, I painted the frame and added Glossy Accents. Then I filled the center with mini pearl beads (adhered with glue). I used a “Happy Birthday” rub-on on a transparency, cut it out, and then I glued it on top of the beads. Now I have a cute greeting to add to handmade birthday card:
8. Wrap embroidery floss around the frame:Check out the A Million Memories design team gallery and see the other ways the talented ladies used these cute frames!!
