This is a special tribute to my brother Dr Bernard. I left the picture part blank so he can slot in the picture he likes most. A display for his office, home or work.
Starting out with a cardboard cutout measuring 40 x 53 cm that is larger than the usual scrapbooking paper size, so I wrapped it in burnished gold wrapping paper. It took 1 entire sheet of wrapping paper as the pleats help create a formal look and introduce texture into the design.
An asymmetrically placed piece of patterned scrapbooking paper, glued down.
3 pieces of paper are used to make the collar. The top and bottom piece are trimmed with decorative scissors and the middle piece with decorative punch that is more ornate.
A plaque with Dr B on it is made with a gift tag and alphabet stickers. Everything gets hot glued down and the scrapbook display is complete.
