It’s that fun time of the month again where I have teamed up with some very talented blogging pals to make a project or recipe from a movie! You may remember at Christmas time we had to choose our favourite Christmas movie and I chose the movie Elf and made a Window Snowflake Sign! This month’s theme is Romance and we all chose a movie together which I’m sure you have seen called Princess Bride. So with this in mind, I popped my thinking cap on and created my DIY Farmhouse Paper Rose Fairy Tale Frame.

When we all decided on the Princess Bride as our movie it took me straight back to when my little sister was about 6 years old. We use to watch the movie over and over and over again because it was her favourite! You see there is 12 years difference between the both of us and she was my sweet little shadow. We did everything together and watching this movie together was one of those special times that will be forever etched in my brain.
I decided to use one of my favourite quotes out of the movie for this project:
“Once in a while
Love gives us a
- Pink Paper Roses – I picked my paper roses up a while ago at the Reject Shop but amazon has a smaller version that will be sure to do the trick
- Old Wooden Frame
- Fusion Mineral Paint – Casement
- Large Flat Brush
- Silhouette Cameo Machine or Script Stickers
- White Vinyl
- E6000 Super Glue
- Chalk Marker
- Scrap Paper
- 120 grit sanding block
- wax to seal
From Raggedy Bits Project Barn
Step 1 – Take your brush and give the frame 2 coats of Fusion Mineral paint, letting each coat dry in between.
Step 2 – Once completely dry, use your sander to distress. If you need some distressing tips, be sure to check out my Best Way to Distress post for some handy hints.
Step 3 – Take your piece of scrap paper and make a heart that fits nicely into your frame.
HANDY HINT: Fold your piece of scrap paper in half and cut the heart to ensure it is equal on both sides.
Step 4 – Using your Silhouette Cameo design the quote. I used one of my favourite fonts Blossom because it fitted in perfectly for this romantic project! Then send the quote to cut on the white vinyl. Carefully remove the excess vinyl and weed out any bits that shouldn’t be there. Cut down to size.
I always design my lettering in Pic Monkey. Furthermore, trace and weld the quote in the Silhouette Cameo before sending it to cut. Most of all, make sure you measure the area of where you want the quote to be placed on the glass to ensure that it fits along side your heart.
Step 5 – So grab your transfer paper and place that over your design. Using an old store card burnish over the top of your transfer paper to ensure that the vinyl all adhere’s to the transfer paper. Remove the vinyl backing paper carefully. Then line up your quote onto your frame and again using an old store card burnish over the entire design. Be careful as to not push to hard and break the glass!! If using stickers this is where you would apply them.
Step 6 – Trace around your heart template using a liquid chalk marker. This acts as a guide to help you stick on your paper roses because if you’re anything like me straight lines are a little tricky! 😉
Step 7 – Glue on your paper roses.
Step 8 – Let the glue dry for a few hours. Wipe away any of the visible chalk maker.
And ta da there you have your very own DIY Farmhouse Paper Rose Fairy Tale Frame.
