Crown frame with Chomas Creations engraving tip

After Maria of Believe Dream Create did this project with the Chomas Creations engraving tip and a piece of plastic mirror, I knew I had to give it a go!  I picked up some of the Darice plastic mirror sheets at Joanns.  You can get more info on Maria's mirror project here... Maria's mirror project

Here is what I did!  I picked up some of the 4x6 wood frames from Michael's for $1.  I paint the sides, add some patterned paper to the front with Mod Podge, let that dry, trim off the extra patterned paper.  Sand down any paper that is hanging over the sides.  Then I added some ribbon and pearls to the front of the frame.  I used screw eyes in either top corner of the frame to hold ribbon to hang the frame from.
Then I took the piece of plastic mirror, put that on a very sticky mat (I removed the protective piece from the top of the mirror AFTER it was on the mat and ready to go, and set that aside), and used the Chomas Creations engraving tip on MAX with a multi-cut of 3.  When it was done I put the protective piece back on the mirror to protect it from getting scratched until I was ready to put it in the frame.

Very simple, but fun project!  My daugther LOVES it!  Of course it is near impossible to get a good photo of a mirror!

i have so been enjoying these projects made with the engraving tip! :) i told my husband that i want one as one of my birthday gifts next month. ;)

i LOVE what you did with the crown on the mirror! can you imagine doing it on a longer mirror, and positioning the crown at the top so everytime someone looks in the mirror, it looks like they have the crown on their head?! can you imagine the possibilities? like with the paperdoll carts, and hair, and hats... sooo cute! :D

thanks for your continues inspiration, amy! :)
