Hooray for Summer

I love the I-Bond cordless glue gun made by Imaginisce, I used it to make this summer frame. 
 

 Summer is my favorite season, we love to go to the beach, to the cabin and just enjoy the sunshine whenever we can.  I also love the washed out colors of summer and wanted to make a frame for this photo of my son and his friend at the cabin. 
 
 
I found an old frame, took out the glass and used the I-Bond glue gun to add a piece of wood instead.  Then I rolled pieces of the Endless Summer collection papers using a wooden skewer and used the I-Bond to glue them to the frame. 
 
 
On the wood inside the frame I added a few pieces of paper, the photo and the fun “Hooray for Summer” die cut. 
 
 
To finish it off I added some coordinating twine around the bottom of the frame and took the cute sun from one of the sticker sheets and added it to the top of the frame.
 
 
Head on over to the Imaginisce blog all this week for more I-Bond projects.  Thanks for stopping by.

Super cute project! I'm seeing more and more people using a glue gun for these projects. I always burn my fingers so I'm a little hesitant. But maybe I should get mine out again. :)
