My BFF and I meet when we were 10 years old. We’ve been fortunate enough to be friends for many, many years. It was fun to remember the things we’ve done while I was wood burning this frame – however, this is not us in the photo!
I used the Rustic Frame and this stencil – I don’t know what company made it because I don’t have the packaging anymore. Sorry. I used a pencil to trace the words I wanted to use onto the frame. The wood is rough (remember it’s a Rustic Frame!) but it’s really easy to wood burn.
I used the Creative Woodburner® Value Pen for this project. After reading all instructions on the package, attach the Cone Point on the hot tool using pliers. Secure the tool stand to your work surface with tape. Place the Value Pen on the stand and plug into an electric outlet, flip the switch “ON” to heat for 4-5 minutes.
I used the Cone Point to outline all the words. For thicker words, remove the Cone Point with pliers and drop it into a ceramic dish or mug. Use the pliers to attach the Flow Point to fill in each letter. When you have completed all of the wood burning, flip the switch to “OFF” and let cool.
I used a Tombow® Xtreme adhesive tape runner to adhere the photo onto a heavy piece of cardstock or poster board. Use Xtreme to adhere the prepared photo onto the back of the Frame.
This is a great gift for your BFF – make two and you can keep one for yourself!
