I have made this frame using my new  happy days papers from papermania...the frame itself was constructed by hand ,,,I have put a very basic frame tutorial under my  blog header so you can have a go for yourselves... they are so easy ...To make the frame stand up I attatched a easel back die cut from sizzix.. the corners are new tonic dies just released the flowers are from my stash.and the hearts wete created with a punch .
.I found the easel die cut right through even the thickest card breaking the actual standing component in half , so I used grungeboard covered with matching paper and that worked a treat ...I have no pic of the back ...but I will be making another frame today so you will see how it stands then.. but here is the die I used for the stand....sizzix have a fab sale at the moment and this die is just £3.74...have a browse at their site ..the p and p is over £6 tho so make sure you make it worth your while
 Sizzix Small Easel Bigz BIGkick/Big Shot Die

.you could use any size heavyweight  card/paper wallpaper etc to make these frames to match your home décor...even make them smaller to attatch as a card topper....oooh the possibilities....
