How I Create a Seashell Memory Frame | Photo Tutorial | Pretty Paper Studio

Yup, It’s that time again! Time to unveil this month’s crafts project that I have created using supplies from Pretty Paper Studio, an online crafts shop. For those of you who missed it, I am honoured to be part of their 12 member PPS UAE Design Team, who will be bringing you a range of fun creative art projects for the next couple of months, complete with informative tutorials so you too can recreate them at home. You can have a look at my debut crafts project here, where I created a Number Recognition Game for my Toddler.

The theme for the month of December is “Gold”, and for this I decided to create a Seashell Memory Frame. Master Z and I have a habit of collecting seashells whenever we visit the beach so you can imagine we had quite a few at hand. With the impending arrival of Baby number 2, I wanted to create something special with these shells to remind us of the time when it was just me and my first born. Just Master Z and myself, a tribute to spending every waking (and sleeping) moment together and how magical our mother and son bond is.

Below is a sneak peak of how I turned these rough shells into magical objects using the Gold Foil method, but to know how I went about creating the entire thing, head on over to the photo tutorial I have written on the Pretty Paper Studio Blog to have a read.
